Leather Conditioner(s)

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever used Zaino's leather conditioner? I've used Blue Magic and Lexol...and while both seem to work pretty well, I'm interested in trying Zaino's product. It always get's great reviews for how well it actually works, and how it smells like fine leather. I'm looking for a leather conditioner that works great on black leather.

its a 2 part system, cleaner and condition, brings alot of chemical cleaners from other brands out of the leather, then softens and even reduces creases by replacing natural oils. a bit o nthe expensive side, so I only use it from the millenia, and maybe the audi when it comes time

I've been using the Lexol leather conditioner for the past few years now...no complaints. But I heard the Zaino leather conditioner was works very, very well, and that it smells great too. It supposedley brings back the new leather smell.

then I would never use it.

lexol is a 2 part system, about 20 dollars each for the good stuff, the other version sold is stores in maybe 10-12 bucks each


Not that bad. I need a good conditioner now after 7 years of ohio weather..

generally you should never do it in winter, doesn't really help.

whenever I do it I pick one of the hottest days of the year, let the inside cook a bit, then smear a bunch all over and work it in, then do NOT wipe off excess, let it sit in the sun with windows shut, allow the pours in the leather to open up and soak in the conditioner, then at night after its cooled wipe away the excess, much better results

The secret to conditioning leather seats in the winter if you don't have a heated garage is to first heat the seats up using a hairdryer before applying the leather conditioner.

you could just turn on the seat heaters and hte heat a bit, but I perfer not to do it in winter,mid fall at the latest, then first really hot day of spring.

In the cold the leather is more prone to cracking, but your ass will heat it up, its the summer sun it needs the most protection from

tints may help, but the interior still gets hot as fuck, and even though the millenia has 20% tint, and higher quality tint, I won't be taking any chances

No matter what the tint is if you dont do the windshield, which is the most inclined glass in the car, inside will get hot. Even 100% tint all around will heat more than UV film in just windshield.. Why does xedos never get hot even under extreme sun? biggrin.gif

I hasten to add that parking in the sun at all is only an extreme-case-scenario event. But the combination of tints and windscreen shade does as much as one can ask for really...

I may get some window tint...but it's tough finding a good shop that wont do a sloppy ass job laying down the window film! I'd want something fairly light, with minal metallics in the film...the dark, dark tint looks like baboon ass.
