Re: The Best staff to clean leather on Jeep

Lexol leather cleaner followed by Lexol leather treatment is probably the best off the shelf product. I've been using it on my vehicles for 20 years and have not found anything that's significantly better. http://www.lexol.com/

Re: The Best staff to clean leather on Jeep

Lexol is probably a pretty good recommendation for easily available stuff, however I have been a fan of Zaino products and use them on my Z06 vette. Its very popular detailing products over in the Corvette community.

Zaino makes a spray leather cleaner then use Zaino leather in a bottle conditioner. The leather in a bottle is the absolute best smelling leather product I have ever used.

Re: The Best staff to clean leather on Jeep

I have some stuff I bought from Fukken and I like, but it leaves the leather shiny. It looks greasy but it is not. I also enjoy the smell of this product.

Re: The Best staff to clean leather on Jeep

Another fantastic product for almost all surfaces other than paint is 303 Aerospace protectant. This is widely used in professional detailing and has worked wonders on my past 3 vehicles. Best of all it does not leave any greasy feel to the material, it just cleanes and restores to like-new and has more of a factory matte finish rather than shiny look of armor all or many others.

Also workes great on: Softtouch interior trim, exterior plastic mouldings, tires, etc etc etc.

Here is the link to their website but it can be found at many auto parts stores:
http://www.303products.com/shop303/i...protectant.cfm

Highly recommended!

Re: The Best staff to clean leather on Jeep

A small drop of baby shampoo on a damp cloth works really well.

Re: The Best staff to clean leather on Jeep

^moistening the cloth first is a great method, especially for the perforated, ventilated seats. just spraying any cleaner or conditioner directly onto the seats could clog these pin holes.

Yup! And Martyp once told me that you can also put a damp microfibre cloth into the microwave and then place it on the leather and it will draw out a lot of dirt. Obviously it's very time consuming.
