Ford Taurus Owners Manual: Cleaning leather seats

• Remove dust and loose dirt with a vacuum cleaner.

• Clean spills and stains as quickly as possible.

• For routine cleaning, wipe the surface with a soft, damp cloth. For more thorough cleaning, wipe the surface with a mild soap and water solution. Dry the area with a soft cloth.

• If the leather cannot be completely cleaned using a mild soap and water solution, the leather may be cleaned using a commercially available leather cleaning product designed for automotive interiors.

• To check for compatibility, first test any cleaner or stain remover on an inconspicuous part of the leather.

• Do not use household cleaning products, alcohol solutions, oil/petroleum-based leather conditioners, or solvents or cleaners intended specifically for rubber, vinyl and plastics. These products may cause premature wearing or damage to the leather.
