Leather cleaner

Looking for a good leather cleaner for my saddle interior and saddle dash on summit. I want something that does not make it shine as the saddle glare can be bad with saddle dash.
Not really a cleaner but a conditioner might be the best word for it.

Re: Leather cleaner

The best one I have found by far is the BMW leather cleaner/conditioner. It will not cause any shine, even if you use way too much of it. It cleans really well and leaves the leather soft, and shine-free. You can get it at any BMW dealer. It's a one step process rather than first cleaning and the conditioning. I can't stand the look of leather that has been cleaned with something that gives it a shiny look, it ruins the look of the interior. I used the BMW stuff on my WK2 last week and it looks like new, with no shine at all.

Re: Leather cleaner

See Lexol web site. Better than BMW and you don't have to go in deep debt to buy it.

The BMW stuff is about $20/bottle, and comes with three applicator sponges. I guess it's a little more than the Lexol, but the $20 bottle will probably last me for three or four years. I financed the bottle over 12 months.

Re: Leather cleaner

Is this the right BMW leather cleaner? Do you have a link to the kit with the sponge?

Re: Leather cleaner

I used the cleaning and conditioning products by : http://www.zymol.com/index.aspx

And they are great, sounds like there are other good ideas above. I fund that i apply the conditioner every few weeks when it really hot, as my summit dash starts looking like a basketball if the sun beats on it all day...a little zymol, and it looks great/classy/conditioned

The picture is a little off, as it doesn't come with a spray bottle, but the description is right.

Re: Leather cleaner

Lexol for regular cleaning. Leatherique for annual maintenance.

Re: Leather cleaner

Does Lexol conditioner (for dash) leave any "shine"?

Re: Leather cleaner

Its interesting that the Jeep owners manual states that you should not use any type of leather cleaner or conditioner on the leather seats. Clean with a damp cloth only and use a Mopar leather cleaner for stubborn stains.

There's a reason for that much like the manual states unleaded not diesel.
