    I have a 1794 edition Tundra with the suede inserts on the seats. What's the best cleaner and protector to use?

    For general cleaning, a good vacuum and detail brush agitation works. Then take a clean microfiber, wet it with WATER (damp not soaked), and blot areas that may need it.

    For stains, a dedicated suede or Alcantara cleaner (Jason Markk Suede Shoe Cleaner...trust me it works lol). Always work from the outside of the stain inward to prevent it from spreading.

    I haven't had to "protect" any suede interiors but from my experience with using weird products to clean cars that are effective, I would assume any high end suede shoe protectant will work. Just tape off the areas since they're typically aerosols.

    Figured with your interior wizardry you would have the answer.

    I was just wondering about how to care for the leather seats and found this post, figured it was several years old so I wasn't going to reply then I looked at the dates. Dang, so many people with the same questions at the same time. Thanks Ckatz for the info.
