    Re: Cleaning your leather

    The product I bought was called Lane's. It's an air freshener type of liquid that you can spray on the carpet. It's called Leather Scent, but it's really not very leathery at all. I used some 3 days ago and a little more the next day, but there's no result.

    There needs to be "Oil of Leather" -something where you could rub a drop of the stuff somewhere in the vehicle and get a true leather smell. Leather cleaners and conditioners may preserve the leather, but they don't (as far as I know) contain anything that replaces the scent once the original leather has begun to lose its own. But I'll try anything that folks suggest...

    Buy leatherique and follow their instructions on the Rejuvenator Oil. You'll get the leather smell back again.

    Experience with this product speaks for itself. It is only the best! You are entirely correct about Rejuvenator Oil and followed up with Prestine, the results are magnificent.

    Re: Cleaning your leather

    Having elsewhere read that Zaino's conditioner has, or would bring back the leather smell, I bought some from Carl (hcvone). It's fantastic! I don't know whether the product has its own scents included, or just brings back the "Nuance" scent that's impregnated in Cadillac's leather, but it worked great. I'm as good as new...

    David, glad you like it, my three biggest leather conditioner customers are furniture makers, I believe they repackage it and "give" their customers a bottle with their furniture. The product has it's own scent, and makes your leather smell and feel good.

    Re: Cleaning your leather

    I bought the Zaino leather products, and tried some today on my passenger seat using the instructions on the bottle. The bottom of this seat is very hard, inflexible and dull looking. The products didn't seem to do anything to soften the leather. How many applications of this stuff do I have to do before I see any result?
    Can anyone post a quick walkthrough about how they apply their Zaino? Maybe I should let the cleaner soak for a while? That's how the Leatherique cleaner works.
    It smells great, but right now that's about all I am noticing. I was hoping it would soften up my headrests too but it didn't do anything for them.

    +1 on that! I just treated my leather with Leatherique. Wow does this stuff work! I couldn't believe all the dirt and crap it brought to the surface. It's hard to explain, but the leather feels thicker now. It's still soft to the touch, but it doesn't wrinkle and crease as bad anymore. It also smells quite good.
