Parkerton is an unknown quantity at this point
Hey folks,

I just bought a 323is with gray leather seats and wanted to clean and condition them. A couple quick questions:

1) Are leather cleaners "color dependent?" (meaning, would I use a different leather cleaner for gray leather vs. tan leather?)

2) What leather cleaner do you like and why?

Thanks for the insight!

1) I've haven't run across a product that is color dependent. They all pretty much say to test an inconspicuous area for color fastness before cleaning.

2a) Lexol cleaner/conditioner is a favorite on the board and sold at my local BMW stealer.

2b) I use Guardsman products that are made for fine leather furniture.
You can buy them here<--- I use it on my car because I've used it on my home furniture for years with good results.

3. You can price and compare 100's of car care products here.<---

Scroll down to find products by type or manuf. name.

Mink oil is not a leather cleaner. It conditions the leather by keeping it supple and soft. It may over soften current products that have additives to keep them soft without treatment. Read this link for further info<---click here.

It's not cheap either. Check this out. 1.7oz for $69.
