Question F30 Leatherette Seats Cleaning

Hi everyone,

My 4 week old F30 has beige leatherette seats and they are already dirty because of jeans, clothes etc.

I bought 1Z Einszett Plastic Deep Cleaner.(Since leatherette is actually plastic.) Does anyone have any experience with this product ?

How should I use it on my leatherette seats ?

Any more suggestions to clean beige leatherette seats ?
The most important part is I want to keep my seats looking matte. I don't want them to shine. That's why I don't think I should use leather cleaner.


Thanks

I use 303 Aerospace on Leatherette. Cleans, protects, and absolutely keeps the seats looking matte - no shine when applied correctly. Definitely don't use leather cleaner.

Thank you, I think 303 is a similar product with 1Z Einszett Plastic Cleaner. I should first try out 1Z I guess. By the way, how do you apply it correctly so that there is no shine? What's the correct procedure to apply?

Just follow the instructions on the back. Less is more, and gently wiping down the surface with a clean MF cloth after application ensures zero shine.

Be glad you have leatherette instead of leather in that color. There has been lots of conversation about jeans staining beige leather - permanently.
