    Wipe down with damp sponge or soak briefly in a bathtub and (*important*) apply leather conditioner liberally on there right afterwards. Otherwise the leather dries out and gets all brittle.

    Last I checked my seat gets wet when it rains and nothing bad has come of it.

    I spray them them (not soaking) and wipe them down.

    I just did mine yesterday, just used a wet blue shop towel, wiped it down then rubbed leather conditioner in. Looks great.
