Water can wreck a car seat, cause the upholstery to sour and even form mildew if left wet. It's a good idea to waterproof your automobile seats to extend the life of the fabric or leather. This will prevent your seats from being ruined if a window is left open when it rains.

Step 1

Clean the leather or fabric seats that will be waterproofed with a soft cloth or brush.

Step 2

Hold the can of waterproofing spray six inches away from seats and spray in a sweeping motion. Spray seats thoroughly to ensure no area is missed.

Step 3

Allow waterproofing spray to dry completely before using the seats.

Step 4

Repeat process at least once a year to maintain waterproof resistance.
