A friend of mine suggested baby oil on my leather seats for a protectant. Has anyone ever tried this?

best thing, but it's impressively nasty would be actual fat (no, not human fat), but fat from the meat you buy at the grocery store. Since that is what the skin of cows (aka leather) nourishes from.

Saddle soap. Plain old Kiwi softening saddle soap. My backseat was a bit worn, and a few applications and a rubdown with a terrycloth brought it all the way back to new.

OK, test came out fine, so I baby-oiled all my seats and vinyl parts (dash, doors...) once I came home from blockbuster. I'll let ya know how it goes, I doubt it will stay shinny, but at least this is good "food" for the leather. And as my dad said it, "If it for baby's skin, it can't possible harm your car's seats"

I wouldn't recommend Baby Oil on leather, but it's excellent for getting a quick temporary shine on your black bumpers, mirrors etc. It leaves zero white residue from my experience, unlike these hellish Back To Black spray polishes.

wow, seriously baby oil? Not a great idea. Sure it'll look good (it's freakin oil people) your seats will look much shinier than they were. But ultimatley, not a great idea.

By Lexol. It's essentially saddle soap, and has few added preservatives for a long lasting protectant. I've been caring for leather seats for a loooooong time, and have to find a better product. It may not be easy to find, but find it. There is nothing better. Apparently, I'm not the only one that thinks so around here....{HERE}
