Cleaning Tips for Sheepskin Car Seat Covers


Sheepskin seat covers are super-comfy, look great, and can last you a long time if they are properly cared for. From time to time you may find that your sheepskin car seat covers become a little grubby-looking; here's how to freshen them up in a few quick and easy steps. 

You will need

  • warm water
  • mild baby shampoo
  • soft nylon bristle brush (the type used for dog grooming works well)
  • sponge
  • vacuum cleaner
  • clean dishcloth

How to do it

  1. Start by vacuuming the seat covers while they are still on the car seats, using the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner hose.  
  2. Next, remove the seat covers and wipe them down with a sponge soaked in clean, warm water. You may find that the surface coating of dust and dirt comes off immediately. Repeat this process a few times.  
  3. Now soak a clean dish cloth in clean, warm water and put a few drops of shampoo onto it. Squeeze the cloth together, rubbing it between the palms of your hands in order to spread out the soap.   
  4. Starting at the top of the seat cover, gradually work your way down, rubbing the cover firmly with the soapy cloth. Repeat the process several times, pausing to wash out the cloth and reapply the shampoo to it each time.  
  5. Next you'll need to rinse the seat covers to get rid of all the shampoo suds. To do this, use a sponge dampened with clean, warm water. Wipe the seat covers down, working from top to bottom until all the shampoo is gone. You may need to repeat this step several times, rinsing out the sponge each time.  
  6. When the seat covers are free from shampoo, you'll need to 'groom' them, using a bristle brush. Brush the covers from top to bottom, carefully removing any tangles from the fleece with your fingers. Grooming will leave your sheepskin covers looking fluffy and almost as good as new.  
  7. To dry the seat covers, hang them up away from bright sunlight and direct heat that could cause shrinkage and fading. If possible, find an airy space in the shade where the breeze and fresh air will dry the covers naturally, leaving them smelling fresh too.

You can give your sheepskin car seat covers a new lease of life by cleaning them as per the instructions given above. Before you replace the covers in your car, give your seats a quick once-over with the vacuum cleaner to get rid of any dust and loose hair.
