    Default Dull leather seats

    Since feeding the leather with AutoGlym leather care cream my seats have gone from a satin glossy type appearance to a dull matt appearance.

    Any tips on getting the shine back into them? I had contemplated using ArmorAll protectant but am worried that the seats will then take on a PTFE feel and I'll (and passengers) be sliding all over the place.

    I've always used Ikea's lether care stuff on any leather seats (be it sofa or car) and they've never been slippery or dull.


    plus it comes flat pack....

    I just bought 2 pcs of this Ikea stuff, but when I came home I saw it was made of clukose/sugar and some other stuff?!?! Is this really doing good? Very sceptical to this Ikea-stuff!

    I had a small leftover of a classic leathergrease (bought at a leather repair shop) I normally use for my motorcycle leather, and used it on one of the front seats in the Vectra.
    As I thought it worked very nice, the leather was soft and smooth, not slippery / shiny / matte, but a nice "glow" and natural scent of leather. Dont recall all ingredients, but at least some bee's wax together with some oil/grease.

    I've taken a chance and used ArmorAll protectant on them, after doing the dash and door cards which also went dull after using the Auto Glym stuff. When I last looked a couple of hrs ago everything had a nice shine to it. Mind you that was also the case when I used the AG everywhere as well.

    The seats are a bit slippery now, but I'm sure it'll settle down.
