Leather 'type' identification

An often heard comment “If it good enough for the leather upholstery in a Ferrari it must be good enough for mine”; problem with this statement is that they are very different finished leathers. The most fundamental question to be answered before you clean or care for leather or any other material is to establish the type of finish used on the vehicles upholstery as the cleaning and care methodologies are very specific for each type

Per autogeek dot com

For the leather surfaces I would recommend Leather Masters Leather Care
Products. This complete line of world-class leather care cleaners and
conditioners will deep clean and condition your vehicle's leather surfaces.

Lots of great options but I often use and recommend Leatherique. Here are some great before and after shots of the Leatherique in use.

The CG conditioner smells the BEST. Everyone wonders why my car keeps on smelling like new. It is on the glossy side however, need to wipe it down afterwards.

I definitely need to use a better cleaner, this thread has been helpful. The stuff I use most of the team leaves everything too greasy although I have tried Griots, very happy with it
