    Hi beefy - do you use the separate Gliptone cleaner and condtioner or do you use the combined cleaner/conditioner? It sounds like a great product but not sure which one to use.

    i have got the two separate bottles as the combined wasnt avaliable when i bought them. i would say it is better to use them separtately to get the best out of the leather. you can get more conditioner into the leather in a few coats.

    I find the CarPlan stuff works for me, cheap as chips in the supermarket, it says apply generously so I do, then leave it overnight and buff it the next day, makes the leather feel enriched and and healthy and gives it a nice unassuming sheen.

    I bought some specialist leather cleaner, originally meant for Sofas. You can buy 'all-in-one' type products which do usually work, they clean the seats and also kind of "moisturise" the leather. It will not leave the leather moist lol, but it does dry up you have to leave it over night, but using this stuff will avoid leather from drying up and cracking as seen in alot of cars. Coloured waxes can also be bought, again ideal if you leather has cracks, this would fill the cracks giving a better neater look.

    Il try find my cleaners and post the names on here for you to consider.

    Looks like a really nice product. Though it would help to see before/after photos of product in use.

    don't laugh, I found Johnson's baby wet wipes are excellent for cleaning the leather - it not only cleans but it also moisturises the leather and leaves no marks/scuffs etc and no smell - if you use other makes you may find that they leave reminents of the wet wipe/fluff all over the leather but Johnson's does not.

    hope that helps
