Within these articles you’ll discover the ‘How’ and ‘Why’ and find pretty much everything you need to know about detailing and care of automotive leather; if you do your research correctly.

The most fundamental question to be answered before you clean or care for leather is to establish the type of leather finish used in the vehicle as the methodologies are very specific for each type

Automotive leather is typically finished with a coating that both provide protection from ultra violet radiation (degradation or fading) as well making it resistant to both abrasion and soiling. The finishes used in automotive upholstery leather are unique; much different than furniture, garment or shoe leathers. Finished leather is extremely resilient and easy to clean and maintain.
