I used Zaino leather cleaner today followed up with Leather in a bottle. That stuff is awsome. My wife's seats had not been cleaned in a couple of years and they look like new. It's not cheap, about $10.95 for a small bottle, but it is good.

HUGE fan of Lexol. I use it religously. Cleaner than conditioner. I've used it on a number of cars, and simply wont use anything else.

lexol is the shit.
I just put some on my new m3's vaders. Cuz drying was occuring.

On that note does the lexol cleaner work as well as the strengthning stuff?

One bottle of Zaino leather cleaner should do your car several times. I also recommend getting their leather in a bottle. This is their leather treatment and protectant. For Zaino, you have to order it, but they ship it really fast. I got mine within 1.5 days of my order. Zymol, I don't know anything about, much less where to get it. You will spend a little more for Zaino, but it is worth it.

I use Lexol in two steps. Get a bottle of their leather cleaner(orange bottle), and a bottle of their conditioner(brown bottle). I use the cleaner about every third time I wash my car, and the cleaner and conditioner about every 6th time I was my car. Stuff is amazing cause it not only cleans and conditions the leather, but also tightens it, giving the bolsters a bit more taughtness and makes the seats feel brand new.

If your local autoparts store or department store don't carry it, try a tack shop or retailer (bought my last two bottles at TSC).

Lexol's some amazing stuff, and I have a challenge for it. Seems a receipt on my passenger seat got wet, and I now have a perfect reverse image of my bank balance from last week. Will the cleaner remove it, or is there something better before I try that?

Eurobeem - I'm guessing your location, Jersey, is the channel Island?

If so, you'll get Zymol from Halfords. I swear by Zymol and Meguiars products for my car; I'm extremely particular and won't use just any old thing. Last I checked, Halfords didn't carry Meguiars products but you may find them in an independent Motor Store. Failing that visit the Meguiars website and they'll mail it to ya.

Both products will clean thoroughly AND condition in one application.

I'm not sure if you can get it there in the US, but I use Autglym leather cleaner, and leather care cream. I have tried lots, but this works great. It is what Aston Martin use and suggest using.
