As the title says I currently use the Armor all Leather wipes to clean up the dust or w/e is on the seats every few weeks and to get the slippery soft leather feeling back haha. My question is i also saw that armor all has a gel that you can apply to the leather and help protect it against cracking and remain new looking . Have any of you used the leather gel? If so how did you like it? or what was bad about it?

dont waste your money if its the product that i have used on my customers vehicles. is it in a brown bottle? this stuff is super slippery, it dont clean the leather and it stinks. i use 3M 2 in 1 leather cleaner/conditioner. it cleans deep into the poors and tightens the leather back up. The conditioner isn't slippery and dont wear off as easy. the 3M product runs about $18 bucks but its worth the money.

I have used Lexol, 3M etc. This is my 10 year old Caddy. Been using Zaino 3X per year since it was 18 mos old. Zaino is good stuff.

NOTE: I have done VERY minor dye touch up on the drivers seat only. Passenger seat nothing but Zaino conditioner 3x per year.

Leatherique here, on the pricier side, but its only something I use 1-2 times a year on the leather.

Ditto. Good stuff.

Just be sure to let the car air out for a while after using it.

If not, you can get a hazy film deposited on the windows.
