Use a water-based interior detailer like DP/McKees76 total interior cleaner or the car pro in the link above to clean. Spray the cleaner onto the leatherette, massage with an interior brush if it's quite dirty, and then wipe down with a microfiber.

A vinyl protectant like 303 Aerospace will give you that dark/wet look without being greasy or glossy. Depending on how much depth you want to add either spray the 303 onto a microfiber and then wipe down the vinyl (for a lighter touch) or spray directly onto the vinyl, let dwell for a minute, then wipe off.

Do the seats and dashboard before you do the trim as you will overspray the trim surfaces and have to go back to them if you do them first.

Be sure to check out our latest video on leather cleaning!




Some great options for keeping your leather clean are:
Gyeon Leather Cleaner
CarPro Inside
Boar's Hair Brush
All Purpose Microfiber



Remember, clean leather has a nice matte finish... not a shiny/greasy finish
