Sweat on black leather interior

What is the best way to keep sweat stains/marks from getting onto my seats and arm rest? I can't shower where I work out and always get salt marks on my arm rests and seats. Is there any product out there that will stop this?

i know what you're saying. sometimes i drive to the park and run around the track.. i run like 5 or 6 miles (oh yaaa) and i sweat like crazy.. then i hop in my G and im so nervous i'm gonna stain the wheat leather

one thing you could do is simply bring a change of clothes and/or put some sort of cloth/cover over your leather after work

I would think cleaning and conditioning your leather 1-2 times a month would do the trick. Bring a towel to the gym, or keep one in the car, to wipe down before you get in.

Detailing experts, feel free to chime in....

Just put a towel over the seat when you get back in. For quick clean ups just use a microfiber towel, I usuall keep one hidden in the car. For leather cleaning and conditioning I prefer the Leatherique Prestine Clean.

Towel is the obvious method.

But as long as you are on top of the cleaning & conditioning of the leather, it should be no problem at all

Thanks for everybody's responses. I would change before getting in, but alot of my exercise is outside. I started bringing a towel, but I wanted to make sure the leather stays in good shape and doesn't soak too much of it up. Thanks again for everybodies responses!

Weekly vacuuming; bi-weekly cleaning and conditioning.


I sweat a lot with detailing and just use Zaino Z9/Z10 every other week. Thus far on my graphite interior, it all still looks/feels great after 5k miles.
