    I currently use a hide rejuvenator that a certified leathersmith put me on to. It' suposed to be an all-in-one product, but I STILL use saddle soap first to clean the leather, then use this hide rejuvenator to give some conditioning back into the leather - it is a fantastic product, but pricey - over 20 bucks for a small container.

    Prior to that I was a LEXOL man. I've just orderd up some Leatherique (rejuvenator + Prestine) and hopr to get it sometime this week - will report back when I'm finished with it!!!

    Cadillac doesn't recommend any one particular product brand . Just make sure you clean and condition it regularly.

    Frost, I put that rejuvenator on and let it bake out the contaminants in the AZ heat for several hours and then prestine cleans all of those contaminants on the surface up. Feels like brand new and smells like the real soft expensive leather that it is. Let us all know what you think after your application. I tried it when searching for the best product and was very much impressed.

    Yes MWA, I too tied the leatherique yesterday afternoon - it was waiting at home for me after work. I put on the rejuvenator and left it for 3 hours in +100 degree heat - there wasn't alot of stuff to get out (grit, etc) beacuse the leather had been treated so recently with the other product, but I WILL AGREE with you that this product is the BEST I have ever tried! The look, the feel, the smell of a new car's leaqther interior, well, it's all there and in spades.

    I'm defineitely a convert - 'nuff said!

    A forum member here recommended Lexol to me and I have been very pleased with the results. I have both wipes and pump spray. It buffs off with a soft cloth and does not make the leather too shiney or slippery.

    Hey Frost, I knew you would be as impressed as I with that Leatherique....only the "best for the best"! European luxury cars- Bentleys- make use of it and until you try it, words just cannot describe it, can they? I had experimented with almost everything until discovering this high quality product.
