great new leather cleaner

So earlier is was dropping my sons e36 interior panels off to be recovered. the owner of the shop and i got to talking I ask about leather cleaner and conditioners. he has been at his trade for 35 yrs. and has done beautiful work on some extremely high end autos,boats etc...his secret? Gojo hand cleaner. what? ya he said it has lanolin for conditioning and is a great gentle cleaner. we went outside to his benz it's a 500 coupe and he proceeds to get a handful of gojo and work it into the leather by hand then wipes it off with a clean towel. amazing. he did the same thing on myx5 seats. there was alot more dirt on them than i thought and they came out great. it's the only thing he uses and i'm sold. he uses gojo wipes for a light cleaning/conditioning. maybe you all knew of this but i didn't. just thought you guys might like to know

I never heard of that one, I would just really becareful that stuff is pretty strong. I would imagine that would dry up the seats alot....

I would tend to go to a Leather Master product...but heck that's just me.

Quicksilver will become famous soon enough
Here's the principal ingredient. In all cases where I have ever used it
it dried my hands out.

Propylene glycol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This one has my curiosity... There's a Hermes in my building so I might have to go by and pick up some of their saddle soap. Have you actually done this or this just something you have heard about?? I looked it up and it looks like it's about $40 which sounds pretty reasonable if it works on our leather!
