Default Those leather bucket seats and age

I was admiring my leather seats the other day on my car and I realized that they're beginning to look a little aged. Any recommendations for a good product

Use an automobile leather cleaner to clean it, then something really oily and greasy to condition it, like an automobile leather cream conditioner.

I use Eagle One Leather cleaner and Meguirs Gold Class conditioner, works great , its very important to keep the seats conditioned nicely

The first thing I do i clean it. Warm soapy water in a moist sponge, not dripping wet just wet, will clean most of it but a good conditioner would be wise after cleanig it. the just keep up on it with a protectant like TurtleWax formula 2001. Don't use something like Armorall to clean it, just to protect it.

Be careful on the back seat though. too much conditionaer will make your passengers slide all over the place.

Yeah! They don't have bolsters like the front seats.... My Back seat is mint, no one can ride there ever! (well maybe some ladies.. )

I also find Meguiars gold class to work well, just gets caught in the perforations (i never liked perforated leather!! )

Meguirs leather conditioner works wonders its so awesome, the leather used to be so stiff and now it feels like a pillow and yah you slip and slide for a while but its def worth it haha
