Question What product does everyone clean their leatherette with?

Since we just had a very popular question about which most people prefer between leather and leatherette (and it seemed like quite a number of people go with the leatherette), I just wonder what the best product to clean it with is. I have leatherette as well and have wondered if I should still use a leather cleaner/conditioner on it since it seems so similar. I usually just end up wiping it down with a wet cloth to clean it, but I want to protect it as well...even if it is more reluctant to cracking, etc. What do the rest of you use? TIA

remember though, lexol is more of a protectant than cleaner. Id say first clean the seats with some soap and water, treat it like plastic cause thats what it basically is. Also if i may say that it really isnt too good of an idea to vinylex ur seats. On the label is cautions against applying to important items such as your steering wheel and seats because it make the vinyl//plastic very very slippery.

It's vinyl, so just about any interior cleaner is good. I love simplicity...
