I am looking to get seat covers for my 2010 Explorer. I have heated tan leather seats. The tan is showing dirt that can't be cleaned and I hate sweating in the summer on the leather.

I want them to fit as perfect as possible.

Any suggestions???

wash in a tub of hot water, let dampen, then re-install.....shrinks as it dries....:grin:


worked with jeans back in the day...


i always use a towel folded on the seat to prevent damage as well as sweating all over it.....towels are dime a dozen and easy to wash....:wtg:

Sorry Mark no suggestions on seat covers...but TG does interior "fix up" work and may know a good cleaning method for leather...may want to PM him.

He didn't say he wanted to clean his seats.

He didn't say he wanted to clean his seats.I know that...that's why I FIRST answered his question directly. But, but reading between the lines I see that the REASON he wanted covers is because he can't find a way to clean the seats...so I offered a suggestion. I'm sorry for trying to help.

...dunno ...Katskins make great leather covers but not fabric

...are you looking for something like these (http://www.amazon.com/Coverking-Custom-Fit-Seat-Cover-Ballistic/dp/B000M9FHX4/ref=au_pf_ss_1?ie=UTF8&Make=Ford%7C54&Model=Explorer%7C663&Year=2010%7C2010&carId=002&n=15684181&s=automotive)? They're $120/each (see the one review who thought it was for a pair).

Here's all the ones for a 2010 Explorer XLT (http://www.amazon.com/gp/part-finder/slide-show/2010/Ford/Explorer/ref=au_pf_pfg_s?ie=UTF8&Make=Ford%7C54&Model=Explorer%7C663&Year=2010%7C2010&brand=&carId=002&partsNode=15736771&vehicleType=6)(dunno if this is what you have) ...lots of pages to scroll through -- various patterns, fabrics, styles.

Katskins is the biggest name I've heard of, but never had them myself.

manufacturers like Dodge even offer them as an option for some cars/trucks.

I think Katskins mostly (if not exclusively) does leather. I couldn't find any fabric-only Katskins.
