MkII Leather Sports Seats cleaning question

I would appreciate some advice on cleaning my XR6 BA MkII leather seats.

Whats the best way to clean them?. They are the ones with the bobbled suede centre.

Thanks,

SteelHand.

I use those armorall leather wipes for both the suede and the leather bits. Its kept them in good nick so far. That said, whilst my floor pan gets pretty dirty, I'm pretty careful with the seats, so this isn't so much cleaning as keeping in good nick.

One thing I have found with those seats is that you get a lot of crap in the crevices. Make sure when you're vacuuming them, that you pull the leather and suede away from each other to get all the crud in between.

I don't use the spray bottle, I just use those wipes, my guess is that they are worried about you spraying a heap of it on and having it discolour/fade the suede. But it probably says it on the wipes as well :) I use the wipes firstly on the leather so it gets the majority share of the goop on em, then wipe over the seude. So far so good - can't report anything has gone wrong with em and they are still 100% after 50000k's of having my fat **se in em!

I'm a big fan of wipes though - I find that the spray bottles end up on bits that they aren't supposed to.
