Leather bits

Does anyone treat or otherwise protect their leather wheels, gear knobs etc? I would guess that they would be more open to damage than seats, because of the constant skin contact and associated skin oils and the like.

Any good products or techniques?

Thanks.

I'm sorry, you seem to have mistaken me for someone who gives a fat rat's behind.

Re: Leather bits

I dont do anything to my steering wheel etc, but on my seats & gearknob boot i use mothers leather prtoector once a month, nice lint free cloth to put it on leave for about 10 mins whislt doing other seats by the time i have done the seats its time to start taking it off again, another lint free cloth will take it off, would just be the same for steering wheel etc i would say

Obviously be careful as its going to be shiny and slippery after you have done this, so a bit of care might be needed when going for the first drive after

Cheers

Re: Leather bits

lol not quite. i couldnt be bothered going out and buying leatehr cleaner, so i raided the kitchen cupboard, and low and behold some moran leather treatment packs. After i dumped 1/2 a bottle of conditioner onto the leather i noticed the price tag. Lucky i didnt pay for it. My couch is a tad dry now tho (all out of conditioner ehheheh)
