Leather treatment for saddle interior

Hi all,

Just finished detailing the exterior of my car (see picture thread for photos). Now my attention turns to inside. I purchased Lexol cleaner, conditioner, & Neetsfoot leather dressing. Can someone share how to handle the perforated seats. I have The cream version that you put on a pad and apply. I'm concerned the cream will clog the perforations in the seat. Any advice?

I like Blue Magic leather cleaner and conditioner. It's a spray too.

I would avoid neetsfoot oil for the seats...the back of your pants may take on a messy finish!

Re: Leather treatment for saddle interior

Leather conditioner is absolutely pointless on modern car leather. What you are doing is applying oil/lotion to a clear coat making it greasy and allowing dirt to stick to it easier.

If you have black/dark leahter just clean it regularly with a good leather cleaner. Or if you have light leather buy a leather protector to apply on top - think of it as sealant that you'd use on your paint.

That's what I use on my creme seats and its superb compared to the conditioner which do more harm than good.

Re: Leather treatment for saddle interior

The Leatherique Rejuvenator Oil and Leatherique Prestine Clean is easily my favorite combination. It works great on all leather helping it stay soft and flexible, yet strong and durable. Check out this article with before and after pics - http://www.detailedimage.com/Ask-a-P...r-care-how-to/.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Leatherique...does an amazing job and keeps it looking FACTORY new. I did my 04 seats a month or so ago and the difference is amazing. My 04 now has better looking/feeling leather than most newer vehicles I've been in.

Even on the dash? Will it darken the stitching?
