Leather question for you Nick

Care to share your industry secrets? Share your wealth of knowledge?

What do you like to use for the cleaning and conditioning of leather interiors?

Thanks.

It all depends on how bad the leather is. But he uses several different products.

I wont really talk too much about them, cause well its not my place. But it really all depends on the condition of the leather to start with and how far you want the leather to improve.

Megs cleaner conditioner. Everyone knows thats what he uses. So Megs cleaner condition. And as he would say, you cant over condition leather.

I've always used saddle soap to clean leather then wipe dry. Once dry I apply a cream conditioner and leave over night to soak in. Seems to work for me

Conditioner only... he has told me there are better cleaners out there. The problem is finding just the conditioner and not the 2 in 1 from Meguiars

Me personally, I would pick Zaino. Tons of people love the smell and its supposed to work great.

True, but if its really dirty, we never even used typical cleaners anyway. but for most people just wanting to keep up with their leather, a frequent cleaner/conditioner will keep the leather looking and feeling good.

Thanks Brent!

If you have the money, Leatherique is your answer. Do a Leatherique treatment at least twice a year and your leather will thank you Otherwise, yes we do use Meguiar's cleaner/conditioners for our regular cleanings.
