    i also use armor all for the leather whipes and protective whipes, but when i use it on the leather i take a clean paper towel and right after whiping down the seats take the clean paper towel and wipe off the excess so its not greasy but i personally like the shiny look, but would advise you to never use maguires (sp?) leather conditioner or cleaner, had real problems with that, made the seat stiff

    Take that Armoral and throw it in the trash. It's full of silicone-based products which give the shiny look. It will work its way into the leather and look shiny for a while, dry the leather out, and crack your seats. No good.

    Dito on the armor-all, its all the solvents in it that make the leather greasy, you need to use water based products. Both my cleaner and condtioner is what you want to use. The cleaner is PH balenced (this is key to cleaning leather, unless the product is PH balenced you could remove the dye from the seats. )next my condtioner will leave the seats in natural appearance while "feeding" the leather so it doesn't dry out and crack. read the reviews on my web site. no one has been disappointed. gary

    IN the case of the dash and vinyl trim use my Ultimate Dressing, its water based and will give a "satin" look NOT a high shine, once you apply it use a soft cloth to buff out. has UV protection and will give long life to those components. Gary
