Default Intense Leather Cleaning

I spent about 1.5 hours today, just cleaning up my leather [60* outside, who wouldn't?]. So, I really spent a lot of time giving extra time to the dirtier areas. My steering wheel being one of them. Everytime I clean my steering wheel, I get a rag full of dirt [goes in white, comes out black]. But, it never ends, like it always does this, and I have cleaned my leather at least 100 times since I got the car 6 months ago [I know, a lot, isn't it?]. I used a complete bottle of Megs Gold Class leather cleaner.. and now that i am poor, I use some turtle wax leather cleaner that I had laying around. Either way, both of them removed the same amount of crap.. and yet, nothing seems to improve. What should I do to really get it clean? And remember, in the 6 months I have had the car, I doubt I have put more than 300 miles on her... so this dirt was all there, none of it is from the past 6 months.

you need to find something that will break the grease down without damaging the leather

Would cleaner say anything like "Not safe for Leather"? Gameover: you think it'* safe?

Simonize leather treatment did me well, its a thick liquid that you work into the leather, it works good!
