How often do you condition your leather?

Also, I would like to know what is the recommendation on how often you should condition the leather?

I usually do it 3-4 times a year. Depends how much time I spend in the car. I primarily drive on the weekends only. Not a big issue for me. The car is garaged also.

2-3 times a year for me. I've used Lexol leather cleaner and Lexol conditioner for the past few years and it's done well for me.

One time a year is good enough for mine.

Yeah, I like the smell and feel. And besides, once a week the driver's seat does get a little bit dirty and so it requires cleaning followed by conditioning

My seats are grey and they show dirt really easy so I clean and condition with Lexol every other week or as needed The smell of conditioner makes it smell new.

i use the poorboys leather stuff about once every couple of months, but mines not a daily driver. you should do it about that especially if its sunny all the time. i like the poorboys because it doesnt leave the leather all shiny and it makes it smell like new.

Mr. Spanky's Jizzle Juice is supposed to be excellent. I hear it makes the interior smell like a fresh summer rain.
