What's a good leather cleaner?

Just bought the wife a new 12 SRT8 blue streak charger! Now I need to detail the 06 charger light gray seats. The fronts look ready dirty compared to the back seats since they were covered with kids boosters. What's a good cleaner?

Let me start by saying that I am not an "Adam's only" guy. That being said, one of the best leather cleaners I have used is the Adam's leather and interior cleaner. I've had to use it on some pretty nasty (light gray) leather, and with the brush they sell, it pulled every trace of dirt and grime out of the seats pretty easily.

Proper leather care starts with selecting the right leather cleaner's and leather conditioner's. First the leather cleaner removes impurities and soil from leather. Then the leather conditioner replaces the lost moisture and restores the softness to your leather seats. Two steps is all it takes to keep leather upholstery feeling soft and supple. The Autopia Car Care Store has them and always stand by these great products.

I've used SONUS products with excellent results in my German vehicles. I learned various countries use various leathers and finish them differently. Using the wrong treatment after cleaning can produce negative results.

I believe you can clean your leather safely with Woolite; mix 1 part Woolite with 9 parts water. Use a damp cloth with that mixture to clean then dry with separate cloth. I've used this method previously with good success.
