Ford Mustang 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. In Canada, use Motorcraft Vinyl Cleaner. 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.
