      How does an owner of Leatherette seats take care of them? Its not Leather but close to it. Are we supposed to use Leater Cleaner on the or just stick with a damp cloth with water?

      Thanks for any tips

      Leatherette is not leather, it's vinyl.

      A good plastic and vinyl cleaner and a protectant would do the job. Clean it with something like Spray 9 and protect it with something like 303 Aerospace protectant.

      You could also try cleaning with a solution of 6 parts water to 1 part Woolite.

      I'd also recommend the 303.
