    Depends on how much time you want to spend on cleaning them. Now they have dual cleaning/conditioning leather cleaners (sort of like Pert Plus for your hair) made by Turtle Wax and Armor All, which is what I usually use. However, you can use a cleaner and then follow it up with a conditioner - many companies make this, Lexall, Maguires, etc. They're all pretty good.

    I like black magic leather care. It shine and protects really good.

    So would a nice leather cleaner do much? My seats are in good shape, no tears or anything, but they have that nice cheap leather wrinkle thing going on. If I was to buy a good leather cleaner/conditoner would it get rid of the wrinkles, really make everything appear smooth again?

    The best reason to clean and condition your seats is to keep them from cracking and tearing from weather and that kind of thing. I don't think it would help wrinkles though (how do you get wrinkles in leather?)

    The best I have ever used - and now the only thing I use is Zaino's Leather In A Bottle. It actually smells like leather too!

    The only way to clean leather, in my opinion, that works great is,
    saddlesoap. I have never seen anything work better.
    Well worth the time!!

    Hells yeah


    I use saddle soap on mine. Followed with a nice coat of mink oil. You can really tell the difference between those and the Meguiar's, Mothers, Armor All products. I've never tried the Zaino, I imagine it's probably pretty good considering the quality of their other products.

    I just use (and have been for a long time) Armor all leather wipes, it's quick and easy and I really hate the "greasy" super wet look with some products...I like how it makes it look clean and shiny but not "wet"...like you just wiped baby oil all over your interior yuck!

    Oh yeah!

    I see Zaino bros was mentioned, I haven't used anything on my interior from them but they do have excellent products I don't think they'd sell it if it wasn't Class A stuff!

    I haven't tried saddlesoap either but have heard nothing but good from people who use it-

    'I' have used very few products on my vinyl, because from the moment I came across Malco's "leather" conditioner, I've been hooked! Lol that leather in the bottle remark above also holds true with Maalco!! It's like they turned the skin into a liquid and smells SUPER sexy; nothing but compliments from the females! Unlike an air freshner just a rich smell that keeps factory leather (vinyl) soft!

    Naked Chics. Correction.... HOT lookin' naked chics.

    ok, someone already stole my post idea. So my other answer is Lexol leather cleaner to clean them, Aerospace 303 protectant to protect them. Z10 is also a good choice. Smells Great!
