Dash material

I have a Overland with leather seats. The dash has the stitching on it. Is it leather too and what should I use on it to clean it?

Re: Dash material

It's leather. Clean with a soft damp cloth.

Re: Dash material

Thanks. I so appreciate your reply to my question. Now that I know it's leather do you have an opinion on using Lexol leather conditioner? I have read good things about this product.

Re: Dash material

I never use anything but a damp cloth. The leather in the GC has a coating, so all your doing is removing the dust and dirt. It's not like it's a baseball glove, conditioners are a waste of money in my opinion. Of course there will be those that believe if you're not spending money, you're not doing it right.

This is a quote from the owner's manual:
"Your leather upholstery can be best preserved by regular
cleaning with a damp soft cloth. Small particles of dirt
can act as an abrasive and damage the leather upholstery
and should be removed promptly with a damp cloth.
Stubborn soils can be removed easily with a soft cloth
and MOPARģ Total Clean. Care should be taken to avoid
soaking your leather upholstery with any liquid. Please
do not use polishes, oils, cleaning fluids, solvents, detergents,
or ammonia-based cleaners to clean your leather
upholstery. Application of a leather conditioner is not
required to maintain the original condition."
