leather care

I tried searching and didn't find anything and went back 6 pages in this section and couldn't find anything on interior care. Anyways what products should be used to keep the leather looking like new, esp. in extremely sunny conditions, like southern California.

Thanks in advance!

The best thing for cleaning leather is saddle soap. It is a glycerin soap. Best place to get it is something like a Farm & Fleet type store or a tack shop. I protect all my leather with Neatsfoot oil but you don't want to use it on car seats. One of the usual leather seat care products sold at auto stores will work. I like products from Griots Garage! http://www.griotsgarage.com/

Again, there are many products and many opinions.

Personally, I prefer Zaino's leather products. The Leather Cleaner/Conditioner is the only product I found that did a GREAT job cleaning the leather in my sisters Mustang. And the Conditioner is very good as well. Finally, it actually leaves a "new car leather" smell, unlike alot of the other products.

The best product out there for cleaning and protecting your leather is Leatherique. Here's a look at there : http://www.properautocare.com/lelecaki.html, after using this product you can use any other to maintain between using it.

Moose, I own both zaino leather care products Z9 and Z10. But I dont know excactly how to use them. Do you recomend applying multiple coats of Z10 like most zaino products or just one coat. And I understand Z9 is just a cleaner.

I lightly spray the cleaner/conditioner on a clean towel and wipe the seat, followed by one coat of the conditioner, used sparingly, and worked into the surface.
