I have been looking through all the posts and getting confused :LOLOL: :LOLOL: :LOLOL:

I have got a New ST170 Focus with half leather seats.

I have not cleaned them from new and want to soon because summer is coming:db:

What is best to use to clean and keep clean???
(A spray, or wipe??)


Thanks

What do you mean by half leather? Are there cloth inserts?

With that being the case, the best products would probaby be things like this, so you dont spray leather cleaner/conditioner onto the cloth:

Gold Class Rich Leather Aloe Cleaner (http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?product=Gold-Class-Rich-Leather-Aloe-Cleaner&sku=G-110)

Or:

If you want, you could also use these wipes, either in between full details, or for touch-ups, spills, etc....

I'd want good control of the product, since it is kind of smaller areas, and so it doesnt go all over the cloth.

I would pick either Rich Leather Step 1 &2 if you want a 2 step process, or the Gold Class Leather Cleaner/Conditioner in the bottle, for one step.

The Gold Class will be fine is your seats are in good shape, which I am sure they are. But some people like to start off with the 'full process' so its up to you.

You could then apply these products to a dedicated MF cloth, then work gently into the leather. For a lower gloss look, come back in 5-7 minutes and buff off excess with a clean MF towel.

I've used the Gold Class cleaner & conditioner on my new car and the stuff works great. I rub it in with one of the applicators (can't remember the name off hand , but it cloth like and looks like a bar of soap) then finish off with a Super Terry towel. It's amazing how much dirt gets on stuff during a weeks time...leather steering wheel cover too. It leaves everything soft without any residue.
