By no means am I saying that the saddle soap/lexol is bad! I'm sure it works great and has for a long time, I just wanted to offer up another idea for those looking for alternatives.

Is your detailing collection because you are an avid enthusiast or do you do it for a living? What are your other detailing fav's?

Re: The Best stuff to clean leather on Jeep

For carpets, mats, dashboard, console, doors, arm rests, etc. I highly recommend the 303 Cleaner & Spot Remover. It's a very gentle yet highly effective cleaner that leaves no residue behind. As for the leather if you want my favorite product I'd highly recommend theLeatherique Prestine Clean and Leatherique Rejuvenator Oil. It's the best formula I have ever used to restore and maintain leather and leatherette seats. If you want a one step process try the Poorboy's World Leather Stuff. We offer 10% off to forum members as well with the coupon code 10offJG. If you have any other questions please let me know.

Re: The Best stuff to clean leather on Jeep

Here is a link with some more good info on Leather Care.

Be sure to pay attention to the protected leather details (vinyl or urethane coated) and how it changes the way it should be cared for.

http://detailingwiki.com/index.php5?...e_Leather_Care

Google is also another great resourse for finding more info on treating coated vs raw.

I'm just an Rabid enthusiast...I was not being critical of your choice, and did not mean to come across that way. i'm sure the 303 is a fine product,The post asks for the best "staff" to clean leather...I won't recommend any product I haven't tried myself. I have in the past used stuff bought from canadian tire, ie; mothers, meguires, turtle, wax etc. and spent all day hand washing and waxing... last fall I decided to try detailing on a higher level... having no ball and chain to hold me down, and plenty o credit cards, I went on a spree.(not quite finished yet)
Now I'm going to be able to compare a cyclo to a flex, pinnacle to wolfgang to dodo and poorboys,probably got enough stuff to keep me active until my retirement terminates. (haven't quite started the retirement yet, maybe 1 more contract...closer and closer, inch by inch, step by step)

Re: The Best stuff to clean leather on Jeep

How did you like the Poorboys? It's next on my list of products to try after reading many good reviews. The last three I put through the paces were Zaino, Adams and most recently Collinite's.

Re: The Best stuff to clean leather on Jeep

I've started using Autoglym Leather Cleaner and it works a treat with a really soft leather brush.

I warm the seats with a hair dryer first to open the pours, spray and work in the cleaner, wipe it off with a dry cloth the using a damp MF which has been in the microwave for a minute to wipe them over which essentially 'conditions' them.

My seats are creme, so I use a leather protector on top.

You do not need to use Leather Conditioner, it does absolutely nothing on modern car leather and if anything actually makes things worse. If you have dark colored leather all you need to do is clean it and wipe over with a damp MF every now and then.

The conditioner does not get to the leather and can actually break down the top coat which is a type of lacquer. To prevent color transfer on light leather track down a good leather protector, I use LTT products but they are UK based.

---------- Post added at 12:59 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:55 PM ----------

Forgot to add, cleaning carpets I use Meguairs all purpose cleaner (APC) at either 10:1 or 4:1, depends either what's been mixed or how bad the stain is.

Re: The Best stuff to clean leather on Jeep

i use lexol products right now on my leather seats. the leatherique looks like a great product- however i cant be without my vehicle for a long period of time while a cleaner works on my seats. ill be looking into the zaino products or maybe keep browsing the site for more feedback on products

Re: The Best stuff to clean leather on Jeep

I needed to quickly clean some dust off my black leather seats and dash on my 2011 Overland. I used some Meguiar's wipes. I've never used them before and have thrown them out. They left a glossy, uneven, almost silicone type residue on the dash and door panels. Has anyone ever tried Danier leather products from jackets on their car?
