Looking for a good quality leather cleaner and conditioner

Now I am using Mcguiers cleaner and Mcguiers leather conditioner. Comes in separate spray on bottles and I don't like either one. The cleaner does not do a good job on my 2013 JGC Ltd. I took some 409 on a microfiber towel on a small area after using the Mcguiers cleaner and you could see the leather was cleaner with the 409. Not by much but a little cleaner. The conditioner feels like it has silicone in it and you better strap yourself in before you start driving for you will slip off the seat. Been cleaning cars for several decades so I know what a good cleaner/conditioner should look and feel like. I wiped the seat with 2 clean towels so I could not have gotten any more off. I would prefer a combination cleaner/conditioner all in one if a good product is made. I see lots of products on the net, Amazon, and many others, but I just hoped I might get some info from you guys before I purchase. Thank You All.

Have you tried Lexol? Both cleaner and conditioner work well.

Zaino’s is supposed to be pretty good.

Griots leather care works well for me. Mild yet effective.

Re: Looking for a good quality leather cleaner and conditioner

Your leather is coated with plastic/vinyl. Using a leather conditioner is just wasting your time...and money.

So, new question, what is a good vinyl/plastics cleaner?
Should we be cleaning our seats with Plexus, thatís awesome stuff?

Poorboysworld makes a product called Leather Stuff. It smells great and when you wipe it off it doesn't leave a sticky residue.

There's a product which was recommended to me by a local detail supply shop -Hyde clean and Hyde food. Hard to find (local guy was unable to stay open in the downturn) but overall a great product. Haven't used it on the jeep yet, but looks awesome on our other cars. Leaves a natural leather scent and a matte finish.

I think Amazon has it. I got my last shipment off eBay.
