  2. Clean microfiber cloths

Instructions:

  3. Spray your leather cleaning solution on the microfiber cleaning cloth to wipe the seats clean and remove dirt and oils that are still on the surface.
  4. For a deeper clean, spray the cleaner on the seats and gently scrub the surface with the brush.
