LOL

Really what we need is better leather. I have rarely had anything else in my cars or trucks but no lotion can protect you from the fact that our leather is not top quality. Its good but the quality is not top.

I think you had mentioned the Katskin leather packages before (like the GP'* have). How would those compare to the factory leather?

Your best bet is to go to a furniture store that sells leather furniture. Ask for the cleaner and conditioner set. I got a full set (two 16oz bottles of each) with my living room set a couple years ago. They also had a five year warranty (free refills). I tried it on my car and it works great. I have the Connoly leater upgrade (big deal??, I don't know). Both are liquid that you apply with a damp sponge. Be careful with the conditioner as it is a bit creamy. Start on solid surface before you get to the perforated center sections.

Use the cleaner about once a month (or as required for cat tracks) and the conditioner once or twice a year. To keep the leather smell, I found some cheap car fragrance that actually smelled like leather and I spray it on the floor mats every few months. I still have the "new car" smell now, but everything I have mentioned worked great on my Olds Touring sedan.

the best way to take care of leather seats is not to get into the car with a screwdriver sticking out of your back pocket!

I think it depends on what color ot is. If you have tan , go for a good cleaner and if black go for a wet look. It doesn't really matter what you use as long as it keeps the leather moist.As for the kids, good luck. make em sit on the floor!

NOt True! If yoy use the WRONG cleaner you will actually ruin the leather faster than if you left it alone! Try Armour All for instance.....This product on leather will speed up the leather'* shine but at the price of the leather'* life though!

Armour All is perhaps the worst product ever invented for cars. After is applied, it attracts dust like crazy and you end up cleaning the interior more thoroughly than if you just did it right in the first place. Also, if you use it on tires, they will turn brown from all the road dirt that sticks to them.

Don't get me wrong, I used to but the stuff in the half-gallon jugs. Then I realized a shiny dash isn't any better than a clean one. I never used it on leather, but it wouldn't surprise me if it harmed leather.
