How to Clean Microfiber Car Seats

by Mel Frank

Microfiber is a fabric used in the manufacturing of many car seats, as it is both attractive and durable. The microfiber will withstand most basic wear and tear, requiring a simple cleaning on a regular basis to keep the fabric looking clean and presentable. A few basic cleaning products will assist you in cleaning and maintaining your microfiber car seats.

Sprinkle a light dusting of baking soda over the seats and let sit for 20 minutes. This will remove any odor and absorb any moisture that is lingering on the seats.

Vacuum the seats to collect the baking soda, along with any dirt or residue that has accumulated on the microfiber surface.

Mix equal parts rubbing alcohol and water in a bowl.

Dip a cleaning cloth into the solution, wring out excess cleaning solution, and rub across the microfiber surface.

Repeat until all seats have been cleaned, and allow the microfiber to air dry.
