Re: Leather Conditioner

Automotive leather is different that boot or saddle leather in how it's finished. You really can't "condition" it like you can in other scenarios most of the time. I will occasionally use a little Lexol cleaner, but don't bother with anything else because it really can't get into the material.

Re: Leather Conditioner

From the owner's manual;

"MOPARŪ Total Clean is specifically recommended for
leather upholstery.
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 MOPARŪ 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."

Re: Leather Conditioner

I wonder if using a leather conditioner can do harm to the leather?

Shipping cost to me is as much as the product. I can get a better deal at my dealer.

Re: Leather Conditioner

I've never used anything other than a damp cloth to clean mine. And I immediately follow that with a dry towel.

Re: Leather Conditioner

A damp cloth is good for light cleaning but body oils and dye transfer from your clothes need a good leather/interior cleaner at least twice/month for daily drivers..
Conditioner is not required but if you really want the new leather smell, try Zaino Z10 Leather in a bottle conditioner
