Specific leather care

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've read the posts, here and elsewhere, about the care of leather interiors but I have a specific question:-

 

the outside bolster on the driver's seat is showing signs of grubby discolouration on the stitching. A common area for concern as it gets rubbed everytime the driver gets in and out of the car.

 

I've tried Glyptone, Autoglym etc, and whilst they are good at general cleaning and care, they haven't been effective in this particular area.

 

Any ideas please?

Do you have to scrub it into the stitching Ron?

 

I'm always nervous of putting too much pressure on.

no I didn't I put it on left for a few mins then just wiped it off with a damp cloth  but as I said read the instructions first

the only other way if the seat are going is maybe  to find some cheap seats there's a few on ebay

hi paul and others  in passed cars when the leather was showing signs off wear I have used this product. its called leather prep cleaner. it smells like womens nail varnish its a spirit. it removes all dirt&grime in an instant none off that hard elbow polish, just give it a good wipe with this stuff cleans all the seats and guff out of the pours of the leather .then you can apply likes off auto glyum leather polish resin ect  you can get it from wwwfunitureclinic.co.uk  they also do restore kits for worn or scufted leather  or they have guys that come to you and re-furb it for you. ebay sells it to
