9. How do I clean and maintain my Steering Wheel Cover?

Your Steering Wheel Cover is made of leather that is specifically tanned and finished for Wheelskins. We recommend that you gently use hand soap and water to remove any surface soil buildup. Avoid all purpose cleaners and protectants that will remove the special finishes and coatings on the leather. Also, most leather cleaners are made for the extremely hard finishes found on upholstery leathers, and these cleaners are unsuitable for the Wheelskins leather. In addition, many perfumes, colognes, and after shave lotions contain alcohol and other chemicals that could harm the leather. We recommend that your hands be free of these substances before you drive.
