Sorry, out all weekend. The suede in the GXP is actually vinyl. I use Regular Armour All and a microtex cloth. Seems to workout great and got some little stains out.

I've seen some home remedies such as white vinegar on oil spots, corn starch to rejuvenate and gently rubbing a pencil eraser on spot. But, having a good suede brush and brushing it often can keep debris and dirt from getting rubbed in with your butt, back, body weight and G-forces!

I should add, being "Artificial Suede", the last thing you want to use on a vinyl compound is a conditioner made for real suede. Alot of them have petroleum distillates in them and not good for vinyl that'* taking body weight on it. It will wealen it.
