I was curious what you guys use to clean and condition the leather in these cars. I have the grey napa leather, and I have noticed some slight discoloration on the driver bolster in the month I've had the car. I wear jeans a lot so I'm not sure of that makes a difference. I've never had a car interior this light. (God help you guys with the white interior). Do you have to use a special conditioner with the napa? The texture seems different than regular leather.

Right now I just use Armorall wipes to clean initially because I still have some and no real reason to waste them. I use Wolfgang leather conditioner for my seats after that though. So far that seems to be doing the job. No stains or anything on the seats. Plus the conditioner smells like the glaze they put on donuts :)

I have the white interior and clean my leather with Zaino Z-9 Leather Spray Cleaner and Z-10 Leather In A Bottle every few months. Works great and smells like brand new leather. Super easy to use and my white leather looks brand new after 2 years.

Leather Cleaning

Agree with Zaino products for regular conditioning. In between leather conditioning I take a bucket and dilute murphys oil soap. I use this to clean my entire interior. It leaves a pleasant smell and dries matte. I also use a swiffer duster a couple times a week to keep the dust off my console and dash. I have the white interior and after a year it still looks great! ;)

Thank you for the replies and input. Never thought of using Murphy's Soap. Is that for use on the seats as well, or just the interior panels. I have some blue magic leather cleaner from other car. I'm going to look for the Zaino conditioner. I plan on keeping this car for a while, and I want the interior to stay looking good.

To be honest here, I too had some denim stains on the seat up until yesterday. Used some armorall wipes and they came right off with little to no effort, wipes were **** blue tho.

These are great for cleaning up stuff for sure!

I use Meguiar's Gold class leather conditioner after any spots or dirt are cleaned up

I can tell you this, I too have the Lexol cleaner and conditioner which I try using about every 3 months or so, but to get the stains off the armoral worked wonders.

Do you use the same leather conditioner on the leather coated dash (driver side) and steering wheel? Is that even necessary.

What about the leather door pads?

This is my first car loaded up in leather - not sure if I need to treat every inch of it, or just the seats.

Thanks in advanced!
