Keep Sweat Off Your Car Seat

Most people have no idea how much they sweat and how bad sweat is for their car.

Cloth seats soak up sweat like a sponge. Unlike your work out clothes, you can’t put your car seats in the washing machine. Once the sweat gets in the seats, that’s where it’s going to stay. Leather seats also absorb sweat into their upper layers and especially around the stitching. The salts in sweat are absorbed by the leather which causes cracking and splitting. And the fats in sweat oxidize causing discoloration and fading. And to make matters worse, the sweat and dirt that soaks into your car seats end up on your clean clothes the next time you get in your car. A Waterproof SeatShield is the easy way to protect your car seats when you’re wet, dirty or sweaty.

What's in sweat that hurts car seats?

And then there is the unfortunate by-product of sweat – odor.

Sweat creates a warm, moist environment that allows bacteria to grow and feed on the contaminants in sweat – which results in a variety of gaggy odors.

The sweat that accumulates in cloth and leather seats is the main reason cars stop smelling new.

Fortunately, the Waterproof SeatShield uses a patented combination of hydrophobic, non-absorbent materials that prevent the formation of bacteria – and those gaggy odors.

How much does a body sweat?

Here are some examples of how much sweat the body produces.


  • sleeping -> 1/2 oz per hour
  • sitting and talking -> 4 oz's per hour
  • heavy exercise -> 3 quarts per hour

    Even a person who never exercises will produce almost 100 gallons of sweat per year.

    Fortunately, the Waterproof SeatShield contains a waterproof/breathable barrier that prevents all this sweat from reaching your cloth and leather seats so they stay clean and odor-free.
