Warning, do not under any condition purchase meguiers new foam multi-piece wheel cleaner.

I went to the store to get some and they were out of my usual "hot rims" cleaner, so I picked some multi-piece foam up, upon first use I was very impressed with the cleaning power and went on to finish washing the car, after about 30 mins there was a fine film on the rims I had to wipe off, and then wash to get off to my specs, and worst of all. I used this stuff to scrub my tires as I always do, well it turned the tires orangish yellow. Like a cheap foam tire shine, almost seemed like the tires turned to metal and rusted, most of it I could wipe off with a damp towel and tire shine covered it up, however this was very disturbing to me.

Do not use this stuff, it has defects in it, stick with the tried and true hot rims wheel cleaner

Well as the "lord of all detailing", what do you think of Meguiars spray on leather conditioner? And what do you use to clean it first with?

I myself use the spray on because it is quick and easy, but overspray on windows is a bitch.

I myself do not need to clean before hand, but if you do, then its simply better to go with the cleaner and conditioner cream they offer. the spray on is really for quick touch ups

I have been using the spray for awhile now, but I think there is some dirt that I need to get out of the leather before they will really start to look great. Everyone says they look brand new but I can tell and it is driving me crazy.

the cleaner/conditioner does much more, but keep in mind once damaged you can't get it perfect.

The best process is to apply way to much, then let it bake in the sun for a day or so, then go back and wipe clean

the cleaner/conditioner is great for first time use, infact using it once a year, usually in the hottest part of the summer is the best. The rest of the year the "maintance" spray will do just fine

"Fascinated with hats of all shapes and sizes, as well as "Through the Looking Glass," particularly favoring the chapter 'A Mad Tea Party'. He is obsessive-compulsive, highly delusional, suffers from psychotic manic depression, and can even sometimes be homicidal. (As shown in Secret Six, he won't eat a piece of food that doesn't have a hat on it.) He exhibits delusions and thought processes typical of schizophrenia. Not only is he often known to quote and associate with Carroll's Wonderland novels, but he often fails to discern between these stories and reality. He will go to insane lengths to get what he wants."
