When you are done, ensure that you use a good leather cleaner to protect the parts you've just cleaned otherwise you'll be back to square one quickly.
I have gliptone and used it on my seats last night with great results.

I just tried a little gliptone cleaner with a soft toothbrush, I was lightly rubbing it, and when I whipped the cleaner away a decent amount of black was left on the cloth I used to lightly whip the surface.

Am I not pressing hard enough? I'm scared to really scrub or anything because I don't want to damage the leather. The white spots did not come off in the area I tried the cleaner and condition in, but the wheel did become much softer and no more oil.

I'm also worried that the black might not be dirty and is the leather where I've scrubbed or rubbed too hard and removed the protectant.
