Question White Nappa Leather Ventilated Seats Cleaning and Care

I'm trying to clean and maintain the seats on my 2018 540i. The seats are white nappa leather with ventilation holes. I've read several posts on leather care but did not seem to find one mentioning white nappa leather with ventilation.
Does anyone have any experience with cleaning and maintaining their seats with similar specs?

Right now, distilled water on the regular basis and OEM BMW leather care kit for occasional deeper cleaning seem to be a good combo.

Any inputs will be appreciated.

Thanks

If you're concerned about the cleaning product entering the perforation in the leather, then as far as you're not pouring cleaners in there, you don't have to worry. As for the colour being white, no need for special products. A good leather cleaner from Geyon, carpro, Adam's, etc will work well. You may want to use a dedicated leather cleaning brush (usually made out of horse hair) or a good microfiber towel if that isn't available. Finally, out on a coat of leather ceramicoating or leather sealant to prevent dye transfer and damage from UV rays.

If you're not confident in applying/spraying cleaner directly on the seats, then apply it on microfiber towel or brush instead.

You can use a vacuum to remove the excess product that went into the holes.
