Seat Car Covers Care


Seat car covers are something that a lot of people don’t bother putting in their cars while others feel that they have to. The argument is that if you don’t put seat car covers in your car then your seats will wear out faster, but others feel that if you put them on the seats then you still aren’t really enjoying the unaltered seat. But if you have seat car covers its important to make sure that you know how to care for them.

Step 1

While it might not seem like a big deal to care for the seat car covers in your car, look at it this way, if you don’t care of the seat car covers then they could wear thin and then damage could happen to your car seats, the very thing that you are trying to protect. That means that you need to know how to properly install and care for seat car covers.

Step 2

The first thing that you need to do is make sure that you have vacuumed the seat that you are going to place the cover one before placing the cover on it. This will help to protect your seat and the seat cover. If you have already place the seat car covers on the seat then you need to remove the cover in order to clean it.

Step 3

Make sure that you take the headrest and pull it up and then pull the cover off starting at the base. Do it very slowly to make sure that it comes off cleanly and without any damage. Then you need to clean the seat to make sure that there is nothing that was under the seat cover, as sometimes dirt and dust can get trapped.

Step 4

Make sure that you scrub the seats themselves, as many times dirty seats can damage the seat car covers when they are reapplied and they will damage the seats as well. But once you feel that the seats are clean then you need to move on to cleaning the covers. The best way to do this is to make sure that you have a bucket of soapy water.

Step 5

Take the seat car covers and place them in the bucket of soapy water and scrub them until you feel that they are clean. You want to be firm to make sure that it’s clean but you don’t want to scrub so hard that you end up damaging the seat car covers. Once you think that the cover is clean then you need to dry it off and place it back on your seat.


When placing it back on your seat make sure that you do so slowly and that it fits snug but not so tight that it rips holes into it. Make sure that you remember to hook the covers into place as this will help to make sure that they don’t move over time causing damage to the seats or covers.

After all they will be used and they need to be properly taken care as not doing so will result in unnecessary damage.
