    There are many products that can do the job including the aforementioned ones. I use Lexol, and Duragloss Leather Treatments (1&2)
    I imagine what you're after is something that will restore the supple feel of your leather. One good product that can do that type of job well on beat leather, is the Leatherique Pristine Clean, and Rejuvenator Oil combo. It brings leather back to life...

    I use a paste type cleaner and a soft toothbrush. The spray cleaners never work well unless your seats are clean to begin with. I have the Meguires cleaner it comes out like tooth paste and work small areas at a time with the toothbruch. When your done use Lexol protectant and you will be good to go.

    that stuff is a pain in the ASS and didn't leave the leather as supple as I expected. Likewise it smells terrible

    You're supposed to use that on real old, worn out leather. I agree with what you've said, though. The process for the Leatherique is very involved, and time consuming for it to work correctly

    I've also used Lexol, and while it's decent stuff, it leaves more of an oily consistency to the seats.

    I heard a really good cleaner for leather is Woolite mixed 50/50 with distilled water. Then after the leather is clean apply a leather conditioner.

    EDIT-the ratio is not 50/50 it is 5 to1 for heavey cleaning or 7 to 1 for light cleaning.

    it is a little more drawn out compared to others, but its easily one of the best leather cleaner/conditioners available.
