Disinfecting Leather Without Ruining It
In my old beater, I never would have batted an eyelash at disinfecting it with lysol or clorox wipes, but I am afraid I'll screw up the leather if I do that here. Yet I KNOW the car is covered in germs and it's making me nuts.

I've had good luck disinfecting leather using white vinegar- it is a good antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal and far safer than clorox anyways.

I use clorox wipes. My Sport Mercedes I drive all the time has an almost white/creme leather interior and I use the clorox wipes all the time. No issue so far.
I do follow up with a trip to the car spa.

I use clorox wipes on our black leather furniture without any problems. The bleach in the wipes usually isn't concentrated enough to bleach things, even regular clothes.

I have used clorox wipes on leather and it has never messed up the leather.
