Leather Care
 
What products are you guys using to maintain the health of your leather seats? Definitely noticing some wear on my seats and hoping to avoid tears in the future.

Gotta say that their oil doesn't do it for me anymore. I use Chemical Guys now and love it. Zymol is also great.

What's with all the negativity?

I've used Zymol a few times, it's alright. I love Lexol.

For a quick job I use Meguiars gold class rich leather cleaner and conditioner.

Sorry. You're new. I'll be nicer.

Been using Lexol cleaner & conditioner for years with no complaints.

I use Gliptone leather cleaner and conditioner. Product of the United Kingdom.

Well if Mango uses it, then it must be the proper thing to use for my car :thumbsup:

Not to hi-jack, but what is acceptable to clean the leatherette with? I used the Lexol and it did pretty good but I wasn't sure if you're supposed to use it or not.

Grande D 10-04-2012 05:17 PM

Gliptone is good, Leahter Masters is good, Leatherique is good but it isn't the best for regular maintenance. Most of our leather is already"damaged", the clear coat is failing, there are visible cracks etc, and the best that these products can do is to prevent the leather from getting worse.

Meguiar's Gold Class is no good, and your average OTC Lexol isn't very good either. Chemical Guys conditioner is okay but not at all durable.

Clean leatherette with 303 Fabric+Vinyl cleaner and dress with diluted 303 Aerospace protectant, Sonax Matte Dash cleaner or another vinyl protectant that wont wear away quickly.
