Leather cleaning question

I have done a lot of homework on cleaning and so I use Lexol. And I clean & condition my seats often, but also correctly. My question is; I have tan interior and it seems like because of the way the e46 seats are, there are like groove like waves in the seat (hope you all know what I mean LOL) in the dirt and dust is very prominent. You can see it and in order to clean it you have to scrub hard, thus this also scrubs off the protective layer on the leather. This is the same problem with the door trim as well. The dirt gets in the little grooves in the Final/leather@and if you scrub it clean, you basically scrub off a layer of the leather/leatherette. Does anyone recommend another way of cleaning? Also, I have neuropathy in the hands and scrubbing is very hard. I need to find another way to clean it so the dirt can get out of these grooves; without further damaging and hurting my hands. And no, I am not buying new door panels or seats LOL
