White Tesla Seats look amazing, however, many people are hesitant to get the white seats because they’re afraid it’ll get dirty easily. My Tesla has 50,000 miles on it, and I have 3 dogs (2 golden retrievers), and my seats are still white. 

Today, I’m going to show you how I keep my Tesla seats white, despite all the dirt, grease, and spills that get on them!

I also created a Youtube video on this, so if you want to see it all in action, check it out here.

Step 1: Clean Your Seats

Before coating your seats, first clean your seats to remove any current stains. 

  • Use a leather cleaner (Car Guys Super Cleaner) with a microfiber towel to get the stains out
  • Use a leather cleaning brush to get out stubborn stains out

Step 2: Apply Protective Coating on Seats

  • Using the applicator, apply a few drops onto microfiber cloth (provided with Gyeon Quartz Leathershield). The cloth should be damp. 
  • Apply coating in parallel fashion 
  • The seats should be wet right after you apply the Gyeon Quartz Leathershield. It will dry on its own. 
  • Apply an even layer across all the seats first, then apply a second layer to the stain prone areas (ex crevices and bolster).

Step 3: Apply to Door Sill and Door Handles

If microfiber cloth dries up, use a new microfiber cloth. If it’s still wet, you can use the same one

Step 4: Apply to Steering wheel and Center console

Step 5: Let it dry for ~20 minutes

Step 6: Apply 2nd layer (you should have extra)

Step 7: Let it dry

  • Let it sit for at least an hour.
  • Try not to disturb the seats for at least 12 hours.

Step 8: Repeat again in ~1 year.

Tip: On a regular basis, try to remove stains or marks as soon as you see them. Baby wipes are helpful for this and I keep them in my car at all times.

Testing my White Seats After Coating Them

I did a stain test after coating seats with this method. I put food coloring, dirt, ketchup, tire grease, and coffee on my seats and left it on for 10 minutes. 

Afterwards, I was easily able to wipe off everything, except the tire grease. For the tire grease, I use more effort and the Car Guys cleaner to remove the tire grease stain entirely.
