About this deal

One picked up on my comments about the filthy Alcantara steering wheel in the Caterham Seven 420R in the last issue and reckoned this product was a surefire way of bringing it back to health. Before I purchase a special alcantara cleaner I wanted to check if any of the products I currently have would work just as well. Special cleaner for stubborn grease stains such as sun cream, grease, make-up, shoe cream, ballpoint pen, etc.

Easily remove the dirt and any residue with a damp microfibre or for an even deeper cleaner a wet/dry vacuum to leave your alcantara, leather or fabric contamination free. The use of tools like microfiber towels and natural horsehair bristle brushes speeds the cleaning process and importantly, protects your Alcantara fabric.If the condition isn’t too bad, you might be able to revive your Alcantara trim with just a brush and a cloth (we’ll get to them later), but if the situation is especially dire - or you just want a thorough clean - an Alcantara surface cleaner is where to start. Developed to remove ingrained soiling from the most delicate of finishes without degrading the surface itself. Its high quality and exclusive touch/flair places it in luxury cars like Mercedes, Tesla, BMW’s and some sports cars, along with high-end products with plush but durable coverings. Slightly moisten soiled areas, evenly apply foam and rub in with SONAX Textile+Leather Brush or a moist sponge.

Simultaneously freshens up the colours and disperses unpleasant odours, such as cigarette smoke and animal odours. This is the point where the material begins to really lose its favor when in comparison with alternatives like traditional leather. When this happens, the small fibers that make up the soft, velvety texture become matted and begin to lay flat. They also say that soft alacantra leather is very delicate and can be damaged easily with harsh cleaners.

We’re working on a steering wheel today, but it’s not uncommon to find suede or Alcantara on arm rests, seats and even head liners. Autobrite Alcantara comprises a solvent free, water based cleaning solution that is designed to safely and effectively lift general soiling from Alcantara surfaces without any need for significant wetting or over enthusiastic agitation. We recommend applying a light mist of Alcantara cleaner to begin with, negating the risk of damp puddles as these may also lead to further damage. One application if this stuff and the stain disappeared, plus the chocolate stain which I I may or may not have been responsible for. For fine upholstery other than Alcantera, like NuBuck, genuine or synthetic suedes, sheepskin, or wool fabrics, try our water-based Micro Lather cleaner for soiling and dry, tough stains.

The Leather Sanding Pad is ideal for: Smoothing rough areas before applying COLOURLOCK Leather Fresh or COLOURLOCK Liquid Leather. Als Autoliebhaber ist die Pflege von Polstern und Alcantara-Oberflächen für mich entscheidend, und dieser Reiniger hat sich als unschätzbar wertvoll erwiesen. After agitating for 20-30 seconds with the brush, we took a clean microfiber towel and blotted up the froth that is lifting and pulling the dirt out of the fibers. Before you dive straight in and start scrubbing away at your nice alcantara its essential that you have a look over what you're going to be cleaning.

Please note that we do not take responsibility for any packages that are left safe or with a neighbour. For car seats, simply apply to a clean cloth and work into the surface not applying too much pressure. Comprises a solvent free, water based cleaning solution that is designed to safely and effectively lift general soiling from Alcantara surfaces without any need for significant wetting or over enthusiastic agitation. After allowing a few seconds for Fabric Clean to begin to break down the oils and embedded dirt, we sprayed the bristles on the boars hair brush and began lightly scrubbing the steering wheel surface in small, circular motions. This characteristic allows the material to be used in places like the seats of Formula One race cars and even SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsules that transport astronauts in outer space.

My VW Golf came with seats with Alcantara centre panels and although nice and comfy I know that these suede-style fabrics can go shiny if not looked after. On a weekly basis, you should simply aim to dust all Alcantara surfaces down using a soft brush and/or a vacuum cleaner fitted with a suitable brush. SONAX product range includes exterior and paintwork, interior and glass as well as winter care products. You can see an example of how it works on a steering wheel here, but I use it with seats all the time 🪣Supercharged Llama detailing🪣 on Instagram: "A job from today, cleaning up this really grubby alcantara steering wheel; this thing was sticky to the touch prior to some Llama Love 🦙.Here is what i did 1) Used a detailing brush to get rid of all lose debris, you will be surprised whats on a steering wheel 2) directions say to spray on but I found this got all over the steering wheel trim etc so I had more to clean. It will remove accumulated grease, dirt, discolouration and general soiling without damaging the fabric. According to Popular Mechanics, Alcantara passes the “Arizona test,” meaning it stands up to fading even in hot, sunny locations. From wheel rim to windscreen and from paintwork to interior - make no compromises when it comes to the care of your car!
