While neoprene seat covers stay busy keeping your seats clean, they’re left to absorb the wipeouts; which leaves many owners asking about how to clean neoprene seat covers.
The Benefits of Neoprene Seat Covers
Cleaning seat covers, especially neoprene seat covers is super easy, really. The actual neoprene material itself is bonded to a nylon outer lining. It’s this nylon lining that not only adds color, it also takes the spills. Luckily, since it’s made of nylon, it’s very hard to stain and easy to clean.
For minor spills, all you really have to do for neoprene car seat covers and truck seat covers is wipe them down with a damp cloth. If the stain is deeper than that, use some wetsuit shampoo on your cloth and wipe away the grime. Since neoprene covers are made of a wetsuit-like material, this should work like a charm.
Steps to Clean Your Neoprene Seat Covers
Manufacturer Wet Okole was the first to make neoprene covers. Based in the Hawaiian islands, the folks there recommend that you wash your covers right in place—they’re waterproof, after all. Just follow these simple steps:
- Fill your bucket with water
- Add wetsuit shampoo
- Use a lint-free cloth to scrub and wash your covers
- Rinse with fresh water
- Let them air-dry completely
Selecting the Right Neoprene Seat Covers for Your Ride
The same process holds true for any brand of neoprene covers, for that matter. Of course, this process will be easier for some vehicles than others. Jeep Wrangler seat covers will be easier to get to than Ford F-150 seat covers, for example, since the vehicle is open. They’ll also dry faster, too. But, no matter what you drive, keep those beachy covers clean and they’ll reward you with years of stylish protection.
