Leather cleaner
 
1 Attachment(s)
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.

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.

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.

Ive always used Lexol leather cleaner and lotion. If its really dirty i use saddle soap.

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

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.

Lexol for regular cleaning. Leatherique for annual maintenance.

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

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.:confused:

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