How to Remove Scuff Marks From the Leather Seats in a Car

by Kenneth Coppens

Leather car seats are extremely susceptible to scuff marks. Scuff marks most often occur from shoes coming in contact with the seats, but almost anything else that touches the seat can cause marks as well. Fortunately, scuff marks are on the surface of the seat and do not go any deeper. For this reason, there is no need to take your car to a specialist to have the seats repaired. With a few common household materials, you car seat can look as good as new.

Step 1

Mix 2 tbsps. of baking soda with 1 tbsp. of water to make a paste. Mix them with a spoon in a small dish.

Step 2

Dip a soft washcloth in the paste. Use just enough paste to lightly coat a thumbnail-size section of the cloth.

Step 3

Rub the paste into the scuff mark. Scrub the scuff mark in small circular motions until it comes out.

Step 4

Wipe the excess paste off with a clean, damp towel.

Step 5

Rub the area dry with a dry towel. Moisture can cause discoloration if it sits on leather seats for too long.
