Leather Interior

I was wondering what is the best product to clean/protect leather seats. I have a new leather interior and would like to keep it looking that way.
Thanks

I used to use a product called GY leather dressing, but that was on a saddle. Good stuff though. Check out some horsey places.

Perhaps a car detailing place will be able to give it a good once over with some fancy stuff. Was considering this myself for my leather as it's been sweated on a bit recently. For the amount of times that you'd use it, it may be more cost effective too????

Believe it or not, use the leather cleaner sold at Moran leather furniture stores. You can get it elsewhere.

Used it on my EB, and did a great job.

Just remember, the trick is to clean leather as seldomly as possible. A wipe down with a wet rag is enough most of the time. A full clean every 2 years, followed by a leather treatment, is all thats required. You will be amazed at the colour change when you first clean it.

Cheers

I was reading somewhere, it may have been in the EL Factory Service book that it is actually bad for the leather to clean it with water?!?

I will try and dig it up again and post it...
