I've recently got a fresh vehicle with leather seats, which are a first for me. I've inititally spent a fair amount of time and headscratching getting it running correctly (faulty crankshaft position sensor) and am now turning my efforts to the cosmetic side of it. As the thread title says, I am looking to clean the seats up. Preferably as cheaply as reasonably possible so no suggestions of getting it valeted, but I have a large case of elbow grease that fell off the back of my truck. Any ideas what could go with it?
Pledge furniture polish, the original in a tin, not the aerosol is all you need. It's rich in beeswax and a nice lavender smell that suits a car. I've used it for years for car, home, and racing leathers, it does a good job.
Saddle soap - the solid block type - and a damp sponge. If you get bubbles you are using too much water! If they have got wet and the leather has gone dry and hard - a wipe over with a clean cloth and a little neatsfoot oil.
I think Quickbeam's solution is the best, Pledge is a lot cheaper than Connelly's too. I had leather seats in a previous car and it was Pledge that I used. It depends on your financial situation I suppose....
