Zaino Leather in a bottle

I just picked up some of the Zaino Leather in a bottle but did get their leather cleaner. I have some of the Lexol Leather cleaner. Could I use that before I apply the zaino leather in a bottle?

Probably. How dirty is your leather? You can try a damp towel if it's not too bad, or Woolite mixed 1:10 with water if you don;t want to use the Lexol. If your leather isn't too dirty, the Z10 alone may work just fine. It does on mine, and I have a very light-colored leather. Try just using Z10 on the driver's seat and see how much dirt you pick up--gauge it from that.

Good luck.

I like the Zaino leather cleaner, but Leather in a Bottle should work perfectly fine after the Lexol pH leather cleaner or any leather cleaner that isn't an "all in one" cleaner + conditioner.

Interior is black so it's hard to tell how dirty but I would rather clean them with something first before applying the conditioner.

I have Z-9 (cleanser) and Z-10 (conditioner). Is Leather in a Bottle a mild version of their conditioner? I guess you could use any good leather cleanser before applying that product.
