TAPTES each seat cover receives a special protective treatment during the manufacturing process, to preserve and protect the leather from dirt and stains that come from everyday use. Maintenance is easy,kindly follow the simple cleaning recommendations below.
For Spots & Spills
Blot any excess liquid immediately with a clean absorbent cloth or sponge. If necessary, kindly use clear, lukewarm water and wipe it with a clean towel then let it air dry. Do not dry wet areas with heat dryers or hair dryers, etc since it will damage the leatherl.
For Stubborn Sports & Spills
Use a mild soap (no liquid here) and clear, lukewarm water. Apply the soap to a clean, wet sponge and blot the affected area. Do not apply force or pressure, as the heat and friction of rubbing will damage the surface over time. Rinse and allow to air dry naturally.
TAPTES recommends using only botanical-based disinfectants on vehicle seating surfaces used in accordance with the directions on the product label. Alcohol or ammonium-based disinfectants could damage your interior when used consistently over time.
Do Not Use
Saddle soaps, oils, abrasives, cleaners containing detergent (such as dishwashing liquids), solvents (mineral spirits), any products containing alcohol (hand sanitizers), household disinfecting sprays or wipes, varnish, ammonia water or any products containing bleach, as these types of cleaners will cause damage to the protective top coat of the interior
Note regarding Blue Dye Transfer
Some clothing items (such as darker jeans) contain dyes that may transfer to lighter color upholstery surfaces, including lighter color automotive leathers. This dye transfer occurs naturally over time and does not reflect a defect in the finish of the leather. If you are concerned about the possibility of blue dye transfer, we recommend that you consider a darker color for your leather seat covers.
If the leather car seats have perforations, use as little liquid as possible.
