Best Product to Clean/Protect Leather?

Was recently informed that the standard Armor All that I have been using on other vehicles helps to dry out the leather faster. So, does anyone have any favorite leather cleaning/protecting products?

Yes, keep the Armor All far far away from the leather, contains silicone.

I've used Lexol for years, cleaner and conditioner. Not expensive and available in most parts stores.

As long as you use a good cleaner and conditioner once or twice a year it's worth it.

There is more expensive, and Beemer and MB owners all have their choices/preferences. Trust me, if your board go read one of their forums, they can argue this stuff for days on end.

I asked the same question several weeks ago. Members voted Lexol, and I purchased Lexol. For leather conditioners, there's tons out there so pick your poison. My favorite is smartwax because they smell great.

I just started using Leatherique on the TH and I'm happy with the results thus far. I believe someone on the board posted up that they're an auto detailer, maybe they'll chime in.

Here's some info on Leatherique. I also use 303 Aerospace Cleaner for the leather seat on my Harley... it's quick and simple to apply.

Coconut Oil! But the temperature has to be above 50 to make it actually absorb. :-)

Would not recommend that. While it has a pretty long shelf life relatively speaking, it still will spoil/go rancid...

Lexol is a good choice. Take a look at "Leather Honey". Www.leatherhoney.com
You can buy direct or thru Amazon.

Will this be ok on the leather/vinyl portions of the leather/vinyl/cloth seats? I still can't tell which parts are leather and which parts are vinyl.

Also, would it work on the dash material? I'm assuming it's vinyl...
