I use this stuff everywhere where the seats aren't perforated (holes)



For the area where there is perforation, I use some off-brand spray stuff which works good. Dont use the paste stuff where there are holes or else you will be there with a toothpick cleaning out the holes for awhile.

That stuff is by far the best leather conditioner I have found. I use it on my car and it smells just like new leather. Everyone always tells me my car smells like "the mall" when they get into it.

I agree, the Meguire'* Gold Class is excellent. I have child car seats in the back that are a bitch on leather and I take them out one a month and treat the leather with this. My leather is in excellent condition. Great stuff.

Off topic, but two bonnies you can get seat protectors for car seats. We have them and they work great.

I'm not sure why you all are bashing Armor All, I've been using it for years and have had no problems whatsoever. The seats look, smell, and feel brand new without any of the greasiness that seems to have been complained about.







Granted, I also use Meguiars leather wax every month. But I use the Armor All once a week with fantastic results.

Yes, we do have those, but I've found on the corvette seats in the SSE the child car seats still leave pretty good rub marks, but you are right. It is WELL worth it to get the thick plastic mats for under the child car seat. It makes a dramatic difference.

When I detail vehicles, I skip all of that low grade stuff and go steal my wife'* Coach leather purse conditioner! That stuff is the best. It has lanolin and other leather conditioners. I goes on like a lotion. If she ever finds out though ....
