I am a fan of Mothers. The leather cleaner works great! The conditioner goes on and does not stay oily. I wrote a review of it in the review sticky. You can see some pics of a neglected interior and what it did for tan leather.

I have tried other that are easily available, I just found the Mothers worked the best. Meguiars always makes a reputable product, and their leather wipes are nice for a quick dusting, cleaning.

Some of the boutique stuff that I have heard good reviews on is wolfgang products. They are available on autogeek.net.

I use Meguiar's Aloe Cleaner/Conditioner. For touchups I use their spray Cleaner & Conditioner Gold Class spray.

If you really want to get them looking good, look into Leatherique...

I use Majestic Solutions Leather and Plastic cleaner first and then condition with 1z Leather Care. I used all sorts of products before but when I matched these two products I didn't use any others. Now once I run out of 1z, which won't be long I'll probably switch back to Duragloss Leather Conditioner. Duragloss makes the leather conditioner that Ford gives out to King Ranch owners.

CGs All in one leather cleaner and conditioner worked well and as far as conditioners, theirs was ok. Surf City and Wolfgang make some nice leather conditioners but never tried any of their cleaners.

Never tried the Leatherique but have heard that it does tremendous work. Now it is expensive and from what I've read it's very labor intensive to get the regimen down correct. I have used Leather Masters and was not impressed at all by that. It was expensive and not that great. There is a reason you always see Leather Masters stuff for sale on detailing forums.

For real dirty seats, and people might not agree with me on this, but for deep in dirty, and always found that a little degresser and metal polishing steel wool works great for cleaning. As far as protecting, I gotz Mother's.

Hey some people would be amazed at what you have to do to clean some nasty leather. I've had to use an APC diluted 1:1 and a PC with a carpet brush attached on one set. Those seats were so nasty it was unreal. Owner figured nothing could help them so told me I could try anything I wanted. It worked but that brush attachement on the PC was slinging ground in dirt everywhere in the interior. I had to clean the dash and all the other stuff twice because of all the crap that came out of the seats.

I have heard of detailers using the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on really bad leather too but I would only use it in an extreme case like the one I mentioned above as I'm sure its not good for the leather.

Lexol is a pretty good product. In a pinch I'd buy it.

Hah! Thanks to you and M.P. Cobra for the plug! Unfortunately these are hard to find, but yes, Ace Hardware and also True Value Hardware generally stock them or at least offer free ship to store through their website.

Leather Cleaner, #06412, 12 oz.
Leather Conditioner, #06312, 12 oz.

They're also available broadly online from Amazon.com, Summit.com, Jegs.com, Colorrite.com, etc.

And any of you guys who have an Amsoil dealer, they would have our leather products as well as and most of our core products.

Now I realize I need to correct myself and get a little more specific...

If you have Alcantara inserts, which is the suede-like material that was original equipment on some SVT Mustang Cobras, do not use leather care products on that and instead refer to the instructions in your owner's manual, which are also available here...

Maintenance - Alcantara
