Have never seen the paste, therefore I use the spray. No problems. I would think that the spray would be easier to apply and control the amount of product going on.

I dont know if there is anything *wrong* with the cleaner, I just think its a waste of money. You can usually get good results out of a damp terry cloth. You can use the soap if you have some serious dirt, otherwise just wipe and condition.

The cleaner is not only a waste its way to harsh on R leather. <p>Woolite with warm water will do the trick every time. Its mild and won't overly dry your leather. <p>After the Woolite treatment use the Lexol conditioner and watch your leather become a so sweet.

I've had limited success with the cleaner.<p>Lexol Conditioner Spray is great. You can also pick it up super cheap from equestrian supply places and the like.

Re: (Foreveradvanced)

Just curious, how often do you guys condition your R seats. I hear the front driver seat starts flaking prematurely.<p>Is IPD the only place i can get Lexol from, I have always just used the leather conditioner honda has for the seat in my prelude. I have heard of lexol but never purchased it!

Re: (Token Blk Guy)

i use wolfgang products from autogeek. the leather conditioner has a great smell to it. leaves the interior smelling like an expensive leather shoe or something. i live in AZ and my car is out in the sun almost every day at work, so i condition mine at least once or twice a month. i can really feel the difference when i don't condition them often enough - hard and dry. my driver's seat is getting these creases in the bolsters that i am sure will develop into cracks if i don't keep them conditioned. plus i can see the dirt build up on the back seats from the windows being open, so i have to take care of that regularly too. my husband thinks i'm nuts for owning such a high maintenance car. just detailed it this morning and already got some airborne crap on the trunk that left a tiny mark. <grrrr><p>06 S60R / Titanium Gray / Chrome 18" Pegs / Gobi / iPod

I'd imagine you could probably find it in any auto supply store.
