How to Clean An Alcantara Steering Wheel


New Member
For cleaning Alcantara, you will want to use a dedicated Alcantara cleaning product such as Sonax Alcantara & Upholstery Cleaner along with a soft-medium detailing brush or suede brush. If you don’t have any of these, you can also use a clean toothbrush, if you are stuck.

Most of these Alcantara cleaners come in the form of a mousse, so you can apply the product directly to the Alcantara, or onto the brush, whichever you prefer. Agitate for 20-30 seconds on the steering wheel with the brush.

Take a microfiber cloth and gently rub it on the surface of the wheel to pull any of the contaminants from the material.

After cleaning Alcantara surfaces, use a very gentle brush to allow the surface to “stand up” once again.

Did we really need a write up on this fairly generic info easily found on a Google search?

You could have also lumped all these different types of wheels into one post.
