Re: Those with Overlands with saddle leather: What do you use to condition the leathe

The lexol will not do anything to the matte-like finish. I just squirted a little on a microfiber towel and used a clean microfiber towel to wipe it off. I have not done the dash area so far but it did not do anything to the overland stitching on the seats. Looks the exact same, but I wanted to apply a conditioner with the harsh summers where I am. I just got my Overland last Friday and I am very picky about keeping it clean and in great shape. Lexol is a great product.

No kidding.

Anyone have any good ideas on how to remove dog puke from the pores?

I like the Zymol leather cleaner works very well and smells great.

I had a Ford Expedition with heated/ cooled leather seats, a dog and two kids and used this technique more often that I can count. And my cat: every trip to the vet resulted in fluids and/ or solids ejecting from three different orifices.

Use Windex multipurpose cleaner. Spray it onto a small area, don't over do it, and use a small brush to work it in. Shop-vac immediately to keep the crud out of the vent holes. Rinse with clear water the same way (use a spray bottle), then dry with a paper towel. Follow up with leather cleaner, then conditioner.

When I sold the vehicle after 5 years it still looked great and got an excellent price for it.

You're absolutely correct man. Jeep did a good job to make it look like finer leather, but it's not. But in a way, that's better, especially for an SUV. The only area that turned a bit darker after applying Leatherique's 'rejuvenating oil' was the perforated middle section and top seatback panel where 'Overland' is embroidered... which happens with all automotive leather. The rest of the seat surfaces could be vinyl for all I know (in most cars it is) .

Bottom line is you can apply ANY leather conditioner to these seats . Having said that, I just finished the Leatherique treatment, and they look FANTASTIC. Leather seats always seem to be dry from the factory. The Leatherique oil rejuvenator makes them better than new, which is essential in hot Texas.
