Don't use Silicon on leather seats ! It degrades the leather over time. I have a great example of the results. I have a 12 year old Bonny purchased from the original owner.
The leather has degraded to an extreme point, The owner used Armor All ...and not leather care products. It looks great for a while. When sun, heat and time are involved it'* not a good result. Silicon and Leather DO NOT MIX.

I use Saddle leather cleaner for horse saddles.. lmao !!! Those things cleans well.. I will try and get the name brand when I get home..
P.*. They also make it more water resistant also and conditions to a nice soft seat.. without the slippery "oh crap this turn at 10 Miles have me kissing my windows. "

Sounds like Meguirs is the winning product all around, so I've gotta throw in my 2 cents for Meguirs one step Leather care. I just used some today on a filthy steering wheel and shift **** and not only is it clean, it feels like polished wood and smells like a leather store. Usually my wheel gets fulla grease, glue, and dirt from my last class so Meguirs did a great job of cleaning her up.

FYI- My family had a bad run in with Lexol. The Bonneville, Tahoe, and Corvette all got Lexolled and every last one of them smelled like sour milk for 3 weeks.

I use pure mink oil (stuff used for shoes) and it works like a charm.

Well, I will add another vote for Meguiar'* being superior to Armor All wipes. I picked up a bottle of Meguiars Cleaner/Conditioner (it was a combinaion cleaner/conditioner, I would have preferred separate products but could not find them locally.

Maybe it'* psychological, but the seats already feel softer and more luxurious with a nice low gloss and rich color. I did notice a funky, slightly rotten odor for a day or so after treating the seats but that is gone now. Maybe there is some similarity between this product and Lexol that was mentioned earlier.

Finally, I understand the crinkly feel someone mentioned earlier. With Armor All wipes, the seats felt almost like waxed paper: cold, hard and extremely slick.

I detail new and used cars everyday at work. They use the Meguiars aloe conditioner that is pictured above. It works pretty well. Just my input.
