I hope the information in this article is of some help to you. If you have any further questions please let me know
Thanks for the article! I've done some more research today and I think I'm going to purchase this along with some "Leather Honey" http://www.amazon.com/Leather-CPR-CC...pr_product_top

Today I hit it with Lexol and let it soak. That did absolutely nothing at all, so I did something I knew I shouldn't do, but the seats look like ass anyway so I went for it. I got some "Simple Green" and tested on a small area and it pulled a lot of the dirt out, I didn't notice any fading. So I did some more of the seat with it, immediately rinsing, and did this process a few times. After all of that I used the Lexol clean and then the conditioner on it. I'd say the seat looks somewhat better, but far from perfect. A major problem is the dirt in the small cracks in the seat. I'm guessing I can use a soft bristled brush to scrub these when I get these new products in I want to try. Any other possible suggestions? If these products don't work I guess I'll have to pony up the money and take it to a professional detailer and see what they can do with it.
