I don't think those magic erasers have any chemical in them...I think they just work from abrasiveness alone...

But I don't know why it wouldn't work if you didn't go at it gently and then condition...

sounds like the same concept of claybarring...get the crap out, and fill in the holes with wax.. hah, something like that.

the leather cleaner and a soft brush would do the same thing. Only difference is that it is designed for use on leather.

I use and have had very good results with Tannery products. I believe that'* the name... I'm going to my parents house right now to pick up the bottle I left there for dad to use in the 00 Park Ave Ultra.

Anyhow he was very happy with it, as was I and the leather after just one application is sooo much softer. I will be applying it once a week for the first month I have the 99 running and then monthly afterwards to regain some of it'* softness it'* lost sitting in the sun for 1.5 yrs, but I may end up needing new leather for the lower portion of the drivers seat.

I don't think there'* anything to it besides foam and water you use to "lubricate" it.
I don't know if I'd use it on leather but it'* definitely not toxic or full of chemicals.

I use the Art Van Leather Care kit on the seats in our Firehawk. It contains a leather cleaner solution and a leather protectant cream. Two step process. The kit came with the leather couches we bought for our living room a few years ago. It works great and we get unlimited free refills.

their website admits to having chemicals in it.

to each his own. I'll get a good laugh it someone messes their leather up using it though, so make my day

Period.
None whatsoever... take a bucket of water out to the car to keep rinsing the magic eraser, then look at the water when you finish. It'll be brown. Guaranteed. I do this 1x/month, shoot for leather conditioner 1x/ every 2 weeks. (Lexol)

One more vote for the magic eraser
