My leather seats


Recommended Posts

Hi All. 

I have finally found something that very successfully cleaned the leather seats 

I found it on YouTube and it really works.

I went to my local retail store and bought a few leather brushes from the shoe section. 

I then bought a bottle of original Woolite detergent.

Mixed 6 parts water to one part woolite in  a spray bottle. I sprayed it into the brush and lightly scrubbed one section at a time, then wiped it off with a microfiber cloth.

This is the most success with the least amount of work of any expensive cleaner I have ever used. Cracks aside the seats look like new. No fading, no loss of color. 

I now have to find a sealant that can be sprayed on after.

I am very picky and am not easily sold on things that do not work. So Considering the success I had with this I am very happy.

I have spent alot of money on cleaners and conditioners that left me less than satisfied and left a waxy covering on my seats that made them look glossy.

I will try and post a before and after picture. I hope this helps many of you fellow leather treaters. And the best thing is how cheap it really was. Cost was 15.00 for the Woolite and brushes. and one microfiber cloth. A little elbow grease and superior results.

No more expensive cleaners for me

Thank you. I am most impressed.

If I like the sealer I will post that as well. 

I just applied it tonight. Will have to wait a day

Yes, and light colors are an extra challenge (and my favorite; I have Cirrus in my XT5).  Kudos to you and thanks for sharing your results and experience and I will be coming back to see how the sealer completes the job.

Here is the Lexol I used.

It seems to be ok. I preach that a little bit goes a long way. I used a microfiber applicator to put on and a microfiber cloth to wipe them down after a few minutes.

It does not give the seats a greasy look like other conditioners. It bears to mention I have other lexol products that I did not care for, but this one seems to do the trick

I use Lexol also and like it very much. It sort of feeds the leather.

I was shocked when I cam out to my Deville this morning.

I found I must have had a pen in my pocket last night that slipped out and bled onto my seat. 

I got as much off as I could but some just wont come out😪. I did not want to go too crazy on it so I decided to clean the bottom and not the back.

So I decided this was a perfect opportunity to show how good the woolite works.

This car is run nearly every day and gets alot of use without tons of upkeep. (for me anyway)

This is a great picture. You will see the glossy look to the back that has not been done yet. Where as the bottom is so soft and smooth, no greasy look (less the ink spots I could not remove)

Thank you.

Welcome to CaddyInfo.

Honestly the best results of anything else I have tried.

And months later they do not feel greasy like many cleaners or conditioners.
