Leather Brush

Are the leather brushes that people are using for the car interiors that same as what you would use for cleaning shoes.
The Swissvax Leather Brush sure looks like it.

Kind of. I think the Swissvax leather brush is boars' hair, where the Kiwi shoe shine brush I have is horse hair.

The Swissvax is *slightly* stiffer than the Kiwi. They both work fine.

How does one go about "using" a leather brush?

apply the leather cleaner on the surface (always good to start in an area that is not noticeable when using a new cleaner) and gently scrub then wipe dry.

then follow with applying conditioner or protection creams.
