Re: Perforated seats, what to use...

Lexol for me, worked great on my BMW and has been great on my motorcycle leathers.

One is a much easier to use spray version that more concentrates on cleaning the leather, which is what you really want to do most of the time, and less conditioner. It leaves a nice supple, natural finish. Then when I have a good hot day, twice a year, I apply the thicker leather conditioner gel version and let the sun open the leather pours up and soak that up for a couple hours. The leather is like butter for months, and you just use the spray cleaner along the way again and my seats look great!
Do you apply it with a paint roller? I've used it for years on various cars. It doesn't build up like other products I've used.

Re: Perforated seats, what to use...

My last car had leather seats. The best product I found was Meguiars d180. It's a little bit hard to find, but it's amazing stuff. It made the seats feel natural after cleaning, not that "slidey" or "gooey" mess you get from other stuff.

Re: Perforated seats, what to use...

lexol for me...it worked great on my last few cars and now the overland. I use the woolite mixture for cleaning and then the lexol conditioner.

Re: Perforated seats, what to use...

^^ I have a bottle of "leather in a bottle" that is unused as I don't care for the slippery/greasy feel it leaves . Is this what you use?

CEO of Leatherique, George Pavlisko: We're a family owned and operated business that has been shipping worldwide and serving the leather specialty market for almost 50 years. We work with the automotive industry, museums, The Smithsonian, as well as folks who collect antique leathers, WW Bomber Jackets, Civil War re-enactors, leather accessories, holsters, antique watch collectors, camera buffs, decorators, motorcycle leathers, and the public for all their leather care needs.

Our products are really appreciated by the consumer because they work as advertised. Our Rejuvenator Oil contains no real oil, no silicones, waxes, petroleum distillates, lanoline, etc, that sit on the surface to make leather slick, shiny, and create a surface seal. It is a penetrating protein collagen formula that will actually be absorbed directly into the hide to plump the dry leather fibers, restore tensile strength, luxurious suppleness, and expel dirt to the surface, where it can be safely cleaned away with our ph correct Prestine clean. The Prestine Clean has a light conditioner in it, so it can be used for weekly dusting and maintenance, while you would use the Rejuvenator 2-4 times per year depending on climate and wear to keep the spongy, fibrous hide nourished. When your hide is supple and healthy, cracking is prevented because the hide can flex with wear and stress.

The enriching formula, once embedded in the leather fibers, continues to condition for several months. Tests have been performed on our products by outside sources. They have determined that Rejuvenator Oil contains more beneficial ingredients than Lexol, Connolly Hide Food, or any other Leather Treatment on the market! And, the other products contain heavy oil fillers. Hide Food actually instructs not to use too much or you’ll suffocate the leather with the unnecessary oil. Also, our conditioner contains no Silicon that dries leather and no wax that merely sits on the surface and does nothing for the leather fibers themselves, and eventually wears away. We strongly advise against saddle soap, as it has been known to remove the dye from the leather as well."

Not too mention that Lexol is known to rot threading among leather hat,boot and saddle makers. Here's a thread where a few of them are talking about their great experience using Lexol. I'm more of a car guy then a leather guy, like these guys, so I just use what they tell me to. Leatherique and the Griots stuff is what I use. Ever and only. The Griot's leather cleaner makes the leather smell like a baseball mit leather. I love it. Everyone comments when they get in my cars how they love that leather smell too. And it far outlasts any smelly can stuff or air vent spinner gadgets.

I know alot of people swear by Lexol. It's so funny, but, does anyone know what's in Lexol?

Yes - Leather in a bottle. I don't have issues with any greasyness- just wipe it dry and good to go.

Re: Perforated seats, what to use...

I've tried the leather in a bottle on my previous G35 and Acura TL as well as a tahoe and was never happy with results...maybe I didn't rub it out good enough.

I've always heard great things about Leatherique, never gotten a chance to use it though, can't find it anywhere.
