How to Maintain Leather/Cloth Upholstery in BC

May 25,2022

Many Ford vehicles boast either cloth or leather interiors depending on the make and model. If you are looking for a way to preserve and care for these materials, then you have come to the right place. Higher trim levels tend to come with cowhide seating, which is very durable. However, it can become soiled over the years and may need some extra TLC. The best thing you can do for leather upholstery is to keep it clean by removing dirt and particles. Then, apply a protective layer to make it less susceptible to stains. You should look for one that has a conditioner included and is formulated for top-coated grain or pigmented leather. This will ensure that cracking doesn't happen with age. Next, cloth can be treated the same way you treat soft-touch furniture in your home. You can use home cleaners, but you should always avoid saturation. You don't want to get the fabric too wet. Foam solutions are great and can be easily wiped off with a brush. You can also spray on a fabric protectant. Finally, if you have small children, you should place a towel or heavy plastic underneath the baby seat to catch any spills.
