Leather Treatment

Just got my 05 blk with red leather. it was absolutely FILTHYYYY so i bought a bottle of meguire's(spell check) leather wipes. cleaned them up nice and left a good moist feeling.

anyways i want to really treat my leather well, as the sun destroyed it in my ttop camaro.

whats the best product/procedure to really keep red leather rich and clean?

I use the meguires leather wipes too, they seem to do ok. I have a bottle of the meguires leather conditioner also. I use the wipes almost everytime I clean my car about once a week and every now and then I will use the liquid conditioner for a heavier conditioning. And also try to keep the car sheltered if possible because the sun will destroy leather.

I use the Meguiar's Gold Class Rich Leather Cleaner/Conditioner. Makes the seats look very good and gives it a nice smell.

I use Meguiars Gold Glass, last long time and cleans and protects the leather. I tried the wipes, I didn't like them, some were nice and wet some were dry. If you don't have your windows tinted do it that is the best way to help protect your interior.

I use Armor All have been for years on all the cars I've own, I don't buy into the crap about it. Try Mothers and Meguiars they have special interior products that work well.

I use leather conditioner on the dash and door panels. I use Meguiars Gold. Spray it on a cloth and massage it in. The sheen disappears in a few days.

Been using Lexol cleaner and conditioner for years with excellent results; no reason to change. After I clean and condition I leave the windows down and don't drive her for a day to let it all soak in and air out...

ArmourAll works on the dash but i don't like the shine and greasy, dust attracting film it leaves. one thing i found on the seats is don't use any white, creamy stuff. it gets in the little holes and is a beach to get out. the last stuff i used was Eagle 1 Nano Protectant. it was clear and worked very well with just a warm glow instead of that shiny, greasy result. i love their wax too
