    leather treatment

    i was wondering what you guys recommend for leather treatment. My 96 lexus's leather seats look as if they are about to split and I don't want that to happen the the caddy. The lexus is also a coach edition which means its all coach leather. Thanx.

    Re: leather treatment

    I use the cleaner and conditioner from Autosport. I also use the leather cleaner swipes to help with the steering wheel and the driver's seat. After almost 5 years and 60,000 miles, my driver's seat shows some "character". I believe that had I been more diligent with cleaning & conditioning it would be in a little better shape today. But soft leather comes with a downside.

    I use Zaino leather cleaner Z-9 and their conditioner Z-10, other good products are Lexol which we used in our shops for over 10 years

    I have been using Lexol products for many years. Unfortunately, wear and tear eventually will take its toll !

    Re: leather treatment

    Ive used leather treatment products such as Lexol, Zymol, Meguiars, etc. But I can bet you nothing works like Zaino Leather Cleaner and Leather Conditioner, once you use it you will see what I mean.

    Hope this helps,

    Actually I meant if the zaino leather treatment and conditioner would help the leather on my seats which are cracked really badly.

    Re: leather treatment

    I have a couple of blue stains on my escalade seats from wearing brand new blue jeans. Does anyone know of anything to remove them. Also I have a couple of dirty spots where the rear cupholders are due to people in the back sliding around and kicking it and also some marks on the doors about where the bose speakers are that have dirt. Anyone know anything they recommend to get these marks and scuffs out.

    Sorry about that, usually if you have cracks it's too late, but I would try some conditioner on an area and see what it does

    A good vinyl cleaner like 303 sould clean your vinyl, and a leather cleaner should take the blue off your seats, you will really have to rub.

    Re: leather treatment

    Hey Hvcone, what can you do about the wrinkling of the leather on the seat botton part. The seat bottom part closest to the door where you constantly get in and out of the truck. That parts seems to wrinkle and crease while the other parts of the seat look brand new.

    Ahhh!!! I have the same problem.......

    Apparently and by what Hcvone has said there is no way to fix this problem... But when I apply Zaino leather cleaner and then the conditioner I put EXTRA attention and more quantity of Zaino and rub really well and hard... I wont rub to this degree all the leather surface of the truck, otherwise it might take me 6 hrs to finish it

    I know this is no fix at all, but it is the best way I have found...
    If someone else knows how to fix this..... please post suggestions.

    Thanks,

    Mejia
