    Re: So what`s everyone like for leather care?

    I was gonna go with griots 3-1 but autopia is sold out. My second choice was poor boys leather stuff but autopia doesn`t carry it ! My mother vlr and meguiars leather conditioner (pump bottle from Walmart I think) will have to do for now. I`ll prob pick up the leather boys elsewhere soon and pick up leatherique twins when it warms up out so I can let it bake in my car

    I have only needed leather conditioner, and for that,... Zaino Z10 for life. The smell is awesome! Apply and close the doors for a day and I`m in heaven... smells like walking into a leather shop.

    Re: So what`s everyone like for leather care?

    Always surprised with these threads concerning leather care that no one mentions Optimum Leather Protectant. It was designed from the get go for coated leather, includes a mild cleaner, easy to apply, leaves a very natural look, has a great leather sent and can also be used on the vinyl interior bits. I`ve been using it for years on my 10 year old Passat and the interior still looks like new.

    Stay away from CG Sprayable Leather. Shiny and slick. Squeaks too.

    Another vote for Zaino!
    Although I started out using the Zaino system for everything (many years ago), the only thing that I still love is Z10.
    Easy to use, and the smell is amazing!

    Gave Gyeon Leather Cleaner + Gyeon Leather Shield a try 2 weeks ago. So far, so good.

    Have you tried Z10, cause it sounds like you haven`t....

    The smell fades but remains very faint. Most people will get in and comment that it smells like a new car. I also like keeping the entire car looking new, so this completes the effort by hitting that last sense.

    Now detailing supplies I could care less. I`m old school, if it smell like chemicals it must be working...

    Leather Shield is good stuff. Have this and Cquartz Leather as well. Both great coatings for leather.

    Re: So what`s everyone like for leather care?

    On our cars with protected leather, I have used many products (both cars have over 100K each) I have not seen any real difference in "protection". The biggest different is sheen and slickness after application. Leather Masters Protection Cream seemed to be the best to me in terms of lack of slickness and look. I have used Mothers VLR and Leather Conditioner, PB Leather Stuff, BF, DP. I have not used any coatings - too much of the other stuff that seems to work fine. Application is key to controlling added slickness.

    On steering wheels, my favorite is Mothers VLR for cleaning and conditioning.

    BTW, these cars are garage kept.

    Correct! Although I`ve been in cars that were supposedly treated with it and they didn`t smell right to me.

    The smell fades but remains very faint. Most people will get in and comment that it smells like a new car. I also like keeping the entire car looking new, so this completes the effort by hitting that last sense.
    Eh, that`s the thing...*any* residual scent would bug me. The Z10ed car I was in smelled faintly of a luggage/leather goods store and that`s not how it would`ve smelled in the showroom. The closest to smelling like Leather my vehicles get is the Jag and the Connolly leather in the `93 Audi, and those have a very specific scent (which a great many people actually find *awful*...).

    Ieven leave the doors open after using Meguiar`s QID/1ZCP even though I like those scents, want `em *GONE* before I get in the car again.

    Heh heh, IMO most people have zero idea what a new vehicle of a specific year/make/model smells like...not that I care about anybody else`s take on my vehicles

    Now detailing supplies... I`m old school, if it smell like chemicals it must be working...
    Yeah, I`m with you there! I like that chemically smell, especially the stuff I`ve been around for decades. And that *is* why I like using my Interior QDs so much...I like that "there`s something in this stuff that`s probably effective" smell, just don`t want it to hang around.

    Re: So what`s everyone like for leather care?

    I’m a fan of the Leatherique set. If the leather is starting to get hard it softens it up. Most of the regular leather conditioners don’t feel effective (like megs gold class)
