I bought this stuff a couple days ago... but I've read such bad reviews, I'm way to paranoid to feel okay about using it. It's that Armor All Leather Protectant
( http://www.armorall.com/prodcat/pages/leat...ctant_2.22.html ). Have you guys ever come across this stuff?
I've always used Lexol's cleaner and conditioner for my leather, but that was cuz I always swiped some from my dad :wink
I want something around the house, just in case I sneak over there and he's all out or something.... But I don't want to blow like $20 for those tiny little bottles!

I used the armorall leather wipes and was not too pleased with them - not that they caused any problems they just didn't do a very goog job.

nice cheap way and easist way to clean leather is by using baby wipes,providing the leather aint too dirty or autoglym leather care or zymol products are pretty good,try the wipes first,you may be surprised

Lexol Cleaner is pH balanced and non-alkaline. Works magic without damage. IMHO -- Would never use anything else.

You might try spraying it on a soft towel, wiping/cleaning an area (like the seat back)and then wiping/buffing the remainder with another soft towel. Then see how it holds up.

I purchased ArmorAll Ultimate Cleaner and it works fine. It seems their products have improved recently. Maybe. We'll see.
