Your Lincoln model’s luxurious leather seats are a source of pride, but unwanted dirt and stains ruin the material. Keep your leather upholstery in mint condition with these tips from West Point Lincoln of Sugar Land.
The first step to making your Lincoln model’s leather seats like-new again is to vacuum. Food crumbs, dirt from a Sugar Land park, and dust cause damaging abrasions to your leather seats. Try to use a handheld vacuum with a soft bristle tip to minimize further scratches.
Next, choose a cleaner that works best for the type of dirt or stain on your vehicle’s leather. Many people swear by DIY cleaners like toothpaste, lemon juice, or vinegar. Whether you use one of these options or a store-bought cleaner, always test the solution on a small section of leather before lathering it on. Never use bleach or ammonia on your Lincoln model’s leather seating.
Apply your desired cleaning solution to a damp microfiber cloth and begin to gently scrub the seats. Deep stains may take some extra elbow grease to remove, but do not be tempted to soak the seats in cleaning solution or water. Using too much product can cause irreparable damage.
Lastly, remove any excess moisture with a dry microfiber cloth. It’s a good idea to protect your Lincoln model’s seats with a leather conditioner. Apply conditioner sparingly with a microfiber cloth and let it sit for 10 minutes before blotting the excess product.
