Overland’s Genuine Sheepskin Seat Covers – Still the Best After
I recently had an inquiry from a customer who
was trading in his 1995 Lincoln Town Car for the new 2007 model and wondering
if the Overland sheepskin seat
covers he purchased back in 1995 would fit his new automobile. Although his seat
covers were nearly 12 years old, he said they were still in excellent condition.
I was extremely satisfied to hear this news—but I wasn’t surprised.

Sheepskin Seat Covers – Cleaning & Caring
The wool fibers of sheepskin are truly amazing, because their molecular structure
allows them to naturally shed dirt. It’s only when you spill something
sticky or oily on the covers that they actually begin to look dirty. If you
need to spot-clean a spill, simply use cool water and a gentle dish detergent,
as Ivory liquid hand soap, on target areas. Allow to air dry (do NOT use any
direct heat source, such as a blow-dryer). It would be good to brush the area
when its dry as some matting may occur from the cleaning process.
some months or years, you’d like to give your seat covers some
overall sprucing up, simply remove them, give them a good shaking outside in
the fresh air, and use cool water and a gentle dish detergent (such as Ivory
liquid hand soap) to spot-clean any soiled areas. Let dry out of direct sunlight.
After they are dry, toss your sheepskin seat covers into the dryer and set
on AIR FLUFF (absolutely do NOT USE HEAT). Toss in some tennis balls or a clean
sneaker or two, air fluff for 15 minutes, open the dryer and clean the filter,
and then give them another 15-20 minutes on AIR FLUFF (do NOT USE HEAT). Remove
from the dryer and reinstall on your car seat—your seat covers will look
like new again.
We’ve had glowing reports from customers who have used
this method. The static electricity of the dryer straightens the wool fibers
and the tennis
balls/clean sneakers help to beat out the embedded dust. Also, if your seats
are equal, with
no side impact airbag or other attachments such as integrated arm rests, we
suggest switching sides when you reinstall them. This completely changes the
and extends their life a few more years.
