If you want to extend the life of your car seats, avoid contact with your car seats as much as possible:

  1. Sharp objects: Rivets from jeans, zippers, keys, belt buckles, Velcro and other sharp objects can scratch and damage the seats.
  2. Pets: Pets on car seats can wear down the interior with their claws or teeth, which can result in holes, tears or abrasions on the seats.
  3. Car seats for kids: Car seats are strapped in the same position on top of the car seat for a long period of time and will put extra wear on the interior where it is strapped in.
  4. UV rays: The sun's harsh rays can cause your car seats to fade over time. Depending on the material your seats are made of, they can also make your car seats fragile and more prone to holes and tears.

Frequent getting in and out of the car can cause wear, especially on the edge of the seat. While it's hard to completely prevent your car seats from getting a bit worn over time, regular cleaning and maintenance can help extend the life of your car seats and keep them in good condition.
