Cleaning leather

Post by simonp820 » Tue Oct 03, 2017 8:20 pm

The leather seats in the back are starting to look a bit shabby - can anyone recommend and leather cleaner that's easy to use? I've tried the wipes that we use on the sofa but it appeared to stain the seats and didn't fade for some weeks.

These are great - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dr-Leather-adv ... B007KB00I4.

Follow those with some Gtechniq L1 Leather Guard. Job sorted!!!

+1 for Dr Leather wipes

My routine:
- weekly wipe down with a damp MF cloth
- monthly clean with Dr Leather wipes
- every 6 months treat with Gtechinq L1
- every two years or on high traffic areas, a full deep clean with valet pro leather soap working liquid in with a leather brush

This will keep the factory look on your leather seats.

As for the Meguiuars leather cream. It will leave a greasy shine on the surface which attracts dust and dirt.
Modern leather is painted so no need to treat with softening conditioner, just treat with a good Quality protector like Gtechinq L1 which is simple spray on and wipe off treatment.

If you prefer a gloss finish I would recommend Gliptone leather products
