View Full Version : Leather Conditioner won't come off!

Jan 31st, 2006, 12:56 PM
Hey all,
Shorty after I bought my new car, I used Meguiar's cleaner/conditioner on the grey leather seats. I read that even new leather can benefit from conditioner and my seats seemed kinda "dry" for being new. Anyway, someone recommended slathering them in leather conditioner and letting it sit overnight to soak in. Now, months later I still have residue left behind. My seats have a fairly deep grained leather, so the cracks have this white residue. Any recommendations how to get them looking new again? I was thinking of using this spray on leather cleaner with a soft brush....

Did you try a second application, but removing it right away?

Sorry to hear this... I hope we all learn a lesson about slathering on leather products and letting them sit overnight. :)

Try this, get a small towel and wet it with warm water, not dripping wet, but a towel with water in it that's warm. Place the towel onto the affected areas and allow the warm moist water to penetrate and soften the dried product. Then wipe the surface clean. This may take a few tries to get all the areas you left the leather product sit overnight.

You should also try agitating the leather with a soft brush after softening the dried product and then wiping it.

Best of luck with this!

Yeah, I tried a second and third application and then removing right away, but that didn't work.

I'll try the damp cloth method, thanks Mike.
