I’ve seen people try every household product in the book to clean and repair their leather auto interior, and there are 8 products I see that cause major problems for people on a regular basis. I don’t recommend using any of the following on your auto leather:
- Olive oil
- Shoe polish
- Hair spray
- Window cleaner
- Finger nail polish remover
- Disposable cleaning supplies and wipes
It is best to avoid any products that contain alcohol or acetone.
For further information on what these products do to leather, check out my post on wives’ tales for leather furniture repair.
Post any additional questions in the comments, and we’d be happy to answer them for you!
