I have fairly new (since April) sheepskins on the seats. Is there something that needs to be done to keep them looking good? Of course I'm talking other than vacuuming. I had some sheepskins on another car some years ago and they started to smell after a while (no A/C). Washing them was not a good idea.

One other question: how important is it to treat the leather underneath the sheepskins with Lexol? This has probably never been done.

I had a sheepskin seat on my 78 Honda 750K, it lasted for years, and went through many machine washings, and was always as good as new.

This and a motorcycle to boot!

If yours has not lasted, maybe it is poor quality backing material, or not sheepskin.
I never treated mine with anything, and put it through hell and back.

Maybe an idea for next washing, is to see if you can put it in a fabric bag, with a drawstring, and then wash it, this might be less stressful on the stiching etc...

Best of luck

You can always take them to an dry cleaner who is experienced in treating such items. For light duty de-odorizing, has anyone tried that "Febreeze" stuff yet? Using some leatehr conditioner on the backs certainly shouldn't hurt. Any extra would just get on the leather seats and that isn't so bad. Never used sheepskins myself so I can't help out a whole lot...
