Leather seats are a synonym for luxury and style in our car. However, over time, the upholstery of the seats can wrinkle, crack, wipe or, worse, one of the owners could leave behind holes made by sharp objects or a cigarette butt. How to remove leather seats damage? The regeneration of leather seats may include three types of work: use of liquid skin, painting with varnishes or paints with additives or replacing cracked, leaky elements. It all depends on the degree of damage, the budget that we can allocate for the update, as well as on whether it is necessary to leave original upholstery elements. Abrasions on the sides of the seats are one of the most common defects. Constant landings and landings can leave traces of various specifics. The easiest way will be to repaint the light scuffs that can be removed with varnishes, paints or toners available on the market. Before proceeding with painting, we must prepare the surface of the corrected element. It is recommended to clean all the seats with a brush using skin cleaning products. They are sold in the form of solids, liquids or foam. Before use, it is worth checking the reaction of the product on the invisible part of the seat. Remember also that choosing the corresponding type of skin type in our car. If we buy the necessary drugs in a specialized store, we can take a headrest with us. It will also help in choosing a shade of paint/varnish. Be sure to check if the shade of the headrest is similar to the skin in a place that we plan to paint.
