How do you clean the seat belts?

Cleaning your seat belts is important for a number of reasons. The most important is that dirt and grime can build up and prevent them from working properly, particularly if it gets into the guide/retractor. Here’s how to keep them in good shape:

  1. Use a clean sponge.

  2. Use a mild soap.

  3. Wipe the dirt/debris off.

  4. Allow the seat belts to dry completely before using them.

Tips

  • Don’t let the seat belts retract if they’re wet – they need to dry first.

  • Only use a mild soap – harsh cleansers may damage the belt webbing.
