Cheers

Re: Looking after Leather

Yeah go and Buy some Leather cleaner/conditioner. Meguries Is really good. Helps to keep the leather soft and suple. Do them about once a week at the least..

If you just leave them they will dry out and crack over time.

Re: Looking after Leather

also, have a look at Mothers products, they are ment to be quite good. We have a paint fixing place next to us at work, and i asked if i could buy polish that they used, and he gave me the most obvious hint to use Mothers stuff. My dad uses it on his seats, and beware your seats will b slippery wot eva u use. plus it will get on your clothes and they will b slippery!!! it doesnt stuff your clothes up or anything

cool Re: Looking after Leather

Ello Ford EL

I have an EF S2 Ghia with leather seats. As the others have mentioned the mothers stuff is good and smells good too. I use it on me seats. However once a week is a bit much IMO. I think if you do them well once every 3 months is fine, and maybe to the drivers seat a little more often if you are picky

Re: Looking after Leather

I have Gosh leather in mine. Every month I use Blackman & Sons to rejoov it. Great stuff. Gosh is very expensive leather and I've found this stuff makes em brand new. As I said, once a month spray some on the seats and rub in with your hands, I prefer not to use a cloth - skin on skin - it absorbs better. I don't know if you have window tint, this also helps. Try get a tint with 70 UV protection. It's not as dark but it blocks all that shit u dont want on ur leather.
