Re: R leather care (row)

I use Lexol Cleaner and Lexol Preservative. They work well on Atacama. Some other people on Swedespeed have said that other products can cause discoloration.

Re: R leather care (evictim)

I just experienced the discoloration the other day....I used Meguiars Vinyl/Leather Conditioner....after a few days, the leather looked dried out and a little chalky, especially the door panel's....but I switched over to some Zymol Products and the interior hasn't been happier <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: R leather care (row)

whatever you use... stay away from foam and wipes. They will make the leather look nice for 2 days, and then it will look horrible. I used 5 or six products, never the stuff you guys are talking about (where do you get, how much, and is it good on das blue??) and Maguiars Gold Class Rich Leather cleaner/conditioner works pretty well. This is the only one which I haven't seen any down sides, but it sounds like this other stuff is even better. True?

Best stuff for fine swirls and scratches. <p>Lexol works great on Gobi, so it should work well on Nordkap too. <p><A HREF="http://www.carcareonline.com/detail.asp?product_id=10705" TARGET="_blank">Care Care Specialties Online</A>

Go to a rural Tack Shop and you'll find Lexol in the saddle care products very cheap by comparison<p>3 liters for < $20 for example<br>

Re: R leather care (needsdecaf)

I haven't used Blitz Wax before. Can it be any easier to apply and remove than P21S?

Lexol, Lexol, and ummm more Lexol. <p>Get the cleaner (orange bottle), conditioner (brown bottle), and Vinylex for the dash (blue bottle.)<p>It's MUCH cheaper if you buy it at a store that sells tack (horse) supplies (e.g., some PetSmarts.)

Re: R leather care (rollie)

Lexol is ok, but . . .<p>Zaino smells great (nice new-leather scent) . . . & leatherique is better (imo) at restoring dry leather.<p> - Mark

What about Connolly Hide Food? Anyone prefer this? I've got a dry spot in my XC I'd like to hydrate.... Lexol doesn't do the trick in this department.
