So you finally replaced your stock Jeep seats with suede ones – that’s really great. And as you feel classier with the suede seats, it is important that you do not forget to take good care of them. In this way, you will not have to spend a lot of money having to replace your seats each time it gets stained or ruined. Keep in mind that elegant suede seats are more delicate than the stock leather seats, although they can still be resistant to damage caused by normal wear and tear. Caring for your suede seats are not all too difficult, and you can adopt the cleaning routine as easy as brushing your teeth.
On top your list should be to vacuum your suede Jeep seats regularly. We all have our different definitions of “regularly” but generally, you can be good with giving the seats a vacuum a couple of times each week if you frequently take your Jeep for a ride. This can help much in getting dirt and food crumbs off your seats. And it is quite important that you do not forget to vacuum along the seams of the seats as these are the places that tend to collect more debris.
Next is to give your suede Jeep seats a good brush – this time, occasionally. If you are the obsessive-compulsive type, you might even make this a habit each time you get on your Jeep. And as you brush the seats, see to it that you brush with the grain of the suede, unless you want to ruin its beauty. If you think brushing is no longer necessary, you might want to double take on that because brushing can remove loose residue that the vacuum might have left out.
And what about the stains – oh how we loathe the stains on suede seats! You have to remove the stains as they develop but do not panic. Ink stains can be dealt with through spraying a thick coat of hairspray and letting it sit for about 10 seconds before scrubbing it off with a clean cloth. Other types of stains generally come off with a layer of non-gel toothpaste.
And to top off your care for your suede Jeep seats, apply some suede conditioner to help restore moisture, especially on areas where you had stains removed. In this way, you can enjoy your suede seats for as long as you could.
