Cleaning leather upholstery

Only use cleaning agents and car care products recommended by Volvo. Clean regularly and treat stains at once for best results. Vacuuming is important prior to using cleaning agents.

Leather upholstery*

Volvo's leather upholstery is treated to preserve its original appearance.

Leather upholstery is a natural product that changes and acquires a beautiful patina over time. Regular cleaning and treatment are required in order that the properties and colours of the leather shall be preserved. Volvo offers a comprehensive product – Volvo Leather Care Kit/Wipes – for the cleaning and treatment of leather upholstery which, when used in accordance with the instructions, preserves the leather's protective coating.

To achieve best results, Volvo recommends cleaning and application of the protective cream one to four times per year (or more if required). Volvo Leather Care Kit/Wipes is available from Volvo retailers.

Cleaning the leather upholstery

Apply the leather cleaner to a damp sponge and squeeze until a foam is created.
Use the sponge on the stain in a circular motion.
Thoroughly dampen the stain using the sponge, allow the sponge to absorb the stain without scrubbing.
Wipe the stain with a soft cloth and allow the leather to dry thoroughly

Protecting the leather upholstery

Apply a small amount of leather protective agent to a cloth and then apply it to the leather in light circular motions.
Allow to dry for about 20 minutes.

Protecting the leather upholstery makes it more resistant to the stresses from the sun's UV radiation.
