i have recently tried a new leather contitioner/cleaner that works amazing, its made by zymol and i could see and feel a difference in my leather, viking also tried it on his new seats and it worked amazing!! in the past i had tried that armor all stuff and it didnt work nearly as good...has anybody else tried it or used something that worked really well??

If you're going to laud a product, maybe give us the name of it -- Zymol's a fairly large brand, it's rather like saying you found a great lubricant from Gunk.

Yeah its freaking sweet.

The cleaner is a beer color in a spray container and the cream conditioner is your every day white color in a clear container. You can buy them at AutoZone and the like.

this will sound crazy but it works, very very well.

go to a shoe store and buy a tin of Kiwi brand "Shoe Grease"

it will make leather baseball-mitt soft, clean, and it waterproofs without being greasy. if the leather is dry and cracking, this would be the best hope. apply it liberally with a toothbrush, let it sit overnight, and wipe it off. repeat as necessary (like shampoo!). if your hesitant to try it, put it on an old pair of shoes, furniture or even a steering wheel cover and see if you like it, the tins only cost a few bucks and one tin should do at least an entire interior. give it a shot and see what you all think. let me know your opinions on it.

I've heard of the Shoe Grease. Have yet to try.

Needsfoot Oil is amazing on leather seats. It kept my AT seats in my 90 coupe looking as best as they could for being pulled out of a junk yard.

It made my Supra MKIV turbo seats in my Lexus look fantastic.

^Oh yeah...and that Needsfoot oil lasts forever (bottle wise).

I bought my bottle like three years ago and still have like half left.

The best and also priciest cleaner/conditioner I've found is made by Leatherique. Its about $60 for the kit, but it does wonders on all types of leather.

For those on a smaller budget I've found that Meguiars Gold Class Leather Conditioner/Cleaner works great as well.
