I have spoken to 3 upholsterers and they all have said all you need is baby wipes for leather, I have tried them and they work a treat, they said just wipe over once a week
Wipe over and buff off they shift the dirt and grim like nowt

hand cream, babyoil, anything thats good for soft hands.

If you want the leather to soften nicely, cover and wet well with babyoil and leave overnight, clean off next morning.

Make sure pssengers in rear put belts on for a few days after.........


I have a set of of leather seats that I took out of my G reg PH that I have just put into my current car because they are still like new and have been well cared for like that.

This only works for the real stuff, not the fabric backed faux leather but the real suede backed stuff.
