Newbie- In need of suggestions on interior detailing

So i done some research and came across Leatherique and Leather Master for the interior. And within those brands there are tones of products and its quite overwhelming. All i wanted is to clean my seats and my dash.

Few questions
What are u guys currently using?
Where can i get them at a great price?

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I only use Leather Master or Leatherique products myself. LM is my go-to solution 95% of the time.
Board sponsor DetailedImage.com has Leatherique products available (and they offer a discount to forums members here).
Board sponsor DetailersDomain.com has Leather Master products available (and they offer a discount to forums members here as well).

Quality products like these aren't going to be cheap like some of the over the counter items you may have seen, but their results are worth it by far. Proper care of your leather will result in it lasting a long time.

Oh, and 1Z Cockpit Premium is EXACTLY what you'll want to use on your dash, console, and door panels

Both sponsors listed above carry it.

http://detailersdomain.com/
http://www.detailedimage.com/

Both of these are working.
I'd recommend Leather Master Soft Cleaner and Leather Master Protection Cream.

No need. It's like if I married Halle Barry and you say "Nice wife... but have you ever slept with Oprah?"
I wouldn't doubt the Sonus or Sonax products are good, and I'm not saying other women aren't amazing, but I have no need to find out. 1Z Cockpit Premium is THAT good. It's the Halle Berry of interior products. Looks absolutely beautiful and no matter how much time goes by, nothing new is better.

Gotcha. Well, i bought both of those(sonus & sonax) but hadn't used them yet Main reason i stayed away from the 1Z because it says "fresh CITRUS scent".....i don't care for those orange/citrus cleaner scents
