Leather Care

I was wondering what products or methods are the most effective for taking care of leather portions of the interior. I have a sport model so I just need to keep up with the steering wheel and shift cover. I was thinking about going with this product to use for the car and some personal items. What advice do you all have for taking care of leather, keeping it from cracking and such?

I use Chemical Guys leather cleaner every time I do my interior. Every other month or so, I use Chemical Guys leather conditioner to keep it soft and supple. All you need to do really.

Does this conditioner help with ring scuffs on the wheel. This steering wheel does not hold up as well as I would expect. I am at the point where I my have to re wrap the wheel.

Like Zeffer said, Chemical guys is absolutely the way to go.

Personally, I've always used Griot's Garage and love their products, but the whole world seems to testify to Chemical Guys.

I haven't been able to get the small scuffs off my steering wheel either unfortunately.

I've been using a combination of Meguiars leather cleaner and Chemical Guys leather cream on my parchment leather seats. So far, so good. And the CG cream smells great in the car.

I'm a great fan of the Griot's Garage products. Their leather car product is what I use on my seats and it has a great smell that really makes my 13 year old car smell like it's factory fresh.

Have tried all the ones recommended. All good but I'm not a fan of the smell of any of them or smells in general....

For your particular application (steering wheel and shift cover) it is important to use a product that is non greasy/slippery.

I have found this


product to be the best of the best when comes to conditioning and preserving leather. Wipe the area clean with a wet microfiber, let dry and apply. Takes very little time to "cure". Besides that it looks like new you can't tell it was ever applied.
