    leather cleaning

    can you just vacum off leather like you do cloth seats? And if its a bit dirty can you just use a wet wash cloth? Or do you have to have special leather cleaner?

    We've come to the point where no extraordinary preformance can occur without the presumption that someone has cheated.

    I always vacuum out the seams, then spray down with Armor All to clean, followed by leather treatment to soften things up. It has worked well for me.

    ....but I'm curious what everyone thinks about using Armor All on leather.

    Armor all is a cheap product. You get what you pay for.
    Vacume, Zaino leather cleaner, then Aerospace 303. If you want an interior that looks like it has suntanning oil on it, go ahead and use Armor All or other cheaper, oil based product. I prefer the satin look on leather ove the greasy hamburger look.

    you dont need to use the armor all, the leather treatment should shine it up pretty well. personally i wouldnt use armor all on leather just for the fact that when it starts to get hot out the armor all will cause the leather to crack

    Zaino has a websight, www.zainobros.com. Both Z9 and Z10, the cleaner and the conditioner, work awesome. I just prefer to use 303 in place of the conditioner because it is easier to apply, and the smell isn't as strong (Z10 gives back the new leather smell BIG TIME, I just would rather have a different smell).

    Another good cleaner/conditioner is Lexol.

    Also, Armoral had to re-do their formula recently because is it was found to do more harm than good, like K-swiss said. Apparently the new stuff is ok on cars though.
