If you own or are shopping for a Land Rover or other luxury vehicle, it’s important to know how to maintain its stunning appearance. Take a look at our guide to leather seat care below and then explore the beautiful Range Rover Sport interior at Land Rover Darien.

What You’ll Need

Before you can learn how to care for leather car seats and begin giving your Land Rover its own deep cleaning, you’ll need to have a handful of useful cleaning products handy:

  • For the main cleaning solvent, choose between Land Rover leather cleaner, saddle soap, mild leather soap, or a homemade solution that’s one part white vinegar and two parts linseed oil solution
  • Microfiber towels
  • A soft-bristled interior brush (NOT a stiff carpet brush!)

Cleaning’s As Easy as 1, 2, 3, 4

Lightly clean your leather seats once a month to keep your Land Rover Discovery interior looking good as new in Greenwich. You may also need to do a more thorough cleaning at least three times a year, and you can follow these steps below:

  1. Vacuum: Use an upholstery attachment to initially clean any dirt and crumbs left on the seats.
  2. Clean: Using whichever cleaning solution you’ve chosen from the list above, spray the solvent on a microfiber cloth and wipe away any dirt you couldn’t get with the vacuum. If you have perforated leather seats, make sure the cloth is not too damp!
  3. Deep Clean: Spray the cleaner onto a soft-bristled brush and gently scrub the upholstery to loosen excess dirt.
  4. Wipe Dry: Get a new microfiber cloth to wipe of rest of the dirt and moisture from to leather.
