Me personally, depending on the leather I prefer something PH balanced and deigned for cleaning leather. I find anything else to be harsh and strip the leather of its natural oils. That being said, I don't use anything on my Escalade since its a Platinum Edition and the leather is raw and unsealed. If it was to become soiled, which is unlikely, warm water would be used. It depends on the actual type of leather you're cleaning.

I just use a damp cloth once and a while and ever so often a conditioner....

Holland, funny you say that as I LOVED the platinum interior and the soft feel, but I then looked back and saw our baby, our dog, and 'ahem'...... a dirty wife..... so no platinum for me!

Zaino Z-9 Leather Cleaner and Z-10 Leather Conditioner are fine to use, have used them in all my Caddy's since 98', safe to use on the vinyl to, ask me how I know. ;)

Since day one I use Z-10 on the seats for conditioner and Z-9 for my cleaner, I don't like anything with gloss on my dash, it just causes more reflections, so I just wipe the dash with a damp microfiber towel, I use 303 cleaner and protectant on the lower doors and other plastic
