Best leather cleaner
 
Just curious, if someone can recommend some good leather cleaner for my new X5. I used LEXOL in the past, but I read a review saying that it was not the best stuff and I know from experience that its not user friendly. Thanks in advance!!

Meguiars makes a lot of good past and spray leather conditioners, do a google.com search.

Never had a problem with Lexol. Just followed the directions and the results are great.

The BMW leather care kit works fine in the X3. I also use a Zymol Leather conditioner on our Lexus, which has softened its once rock-hard (and slippery) leather surface.

BMW kit is good but if you want best then go for Spinneybeck

Hi Guys -

FWIW, the leather on our cars is just coated leather.

I use cleaners less sparingly than water every 2 weeks as I prefer to just keep ontop of it rather than let the dirt build up.

Here is a tip though. Go buy a Horse Hair Brush *one of the very few Griots* items I do like ! Spray some water or dilute 80 water/20 cleaner you like and SCRUB away with the brush. Wipe off with a clean towel, then spray clean water and wipe again.

U will be AMAZED at how much grit the horse hair agitates & cleans out of the cracks and crevices as opposed to just wiping with a cloth ! I've seen it 1st hand ;-)

I order the Gliptone from England. Best I've ever found for auto & furniture.

I agree, Meguiars is all I use.

I love my Lexol

I've used Murphy's oil soap and warm water for years. About 2 caps of oil soap to a 1/2 gallon of warm water. One microfiber towel for the wash and one for the dry off. Works on all surfaces with no film residue.

what do you guy think about zaino

Rick in Prescott 04-06-2007 10:35 AM

I've used Zaino leather in a bottle but Murphy's really works great and it very inexpensive. The Zaino product took to long to apply and I didn't like the finish on the leather when done.

:iagree: ...I bought my first blt of the Zaino leather stuff: it may be
their only crummy product or, I got a bad batch, but the stuff sucks.
And, I'm a huge Zaino fan, otherwise.

I still think Spinneybeck is the best, with Lexol a close 2nd.

I use Crofgate Leather cleaner....I also know a lot of people that swear by Autoglym's leather cleaner
