    Default Cleaning leather trim...

    Whats the best cleaner for leather seats and trim? I picked up some Autoglym leather cleaner today as I've used other Autoglym products before... anyone got any other suggestions?

    I'm also got some Autoglym Vinyl and Rubber cleaner for the dash...

    David I can recomend Gliptone Leather cleaner and Gliptone Leather conditioner, they are what I use on the leather trim on my motor and I find it better than any of the other makes I have tried.

    Cheers ed, I'll do a quick test with the Autoglym and if that's no good I'll take a look at the Gliptone

    I've also used Gliptone Leather cleaner and Gliptone Leather conditioner.

    I'm very pleased with the results, "it does what it says on the tin", well bottle actually !!

    After treatment you really notice the smell of leather.

    Simoniz stuff is great, when I bought the half leather interior for my astra the lad gave me a half bottle of the stuff, was the best leather cleaner I ever used but haven't been able to find anymore since (can anyone advise?)

    I am currently using the autoglym cleaner & Autoglym leather care cream, good stuff but I feel the simoniz was still better!
