Great method to restore badly "shined" leather or leather with significant build up

I thought the truly amazing results I (and others) got from the "Magic Eraser" sponge-like product deserved a post of it's own. You can get these at any Target and many other stores.

I was having problems getting rid of the typical interior leather shininess that seems to creep up on us all. I tried many different products with little to no success. However, the Magic Eraser will restore shiny interior leather on "tougher" colors such as Red, Grey or Tan back to the perfect OEM matte finish. The products are really inexpensive and work basically with hot water alone. These things are truly a detailers dream. Now I just have to find a similar product that will last. I suspect someone makes one.

Read my original post with instructions here (and link to where I got the tip from).

I do hope this helps many of you as much as it helped me.
