How much Leatherique do you need?

I see on Amazon there are 32, 16, and 8oz kits. How much would I need to do one cleaning? I cant seem to find how much is used. Thanks!

Here's my tip, by the largest size available, you'll use it again. Also, use a pair of latex gloves when applying, and make sure that you massage it into every nook and cranny. I've been using Leatherique for years, and if you have the patience to do the job properly, you won't be disappointed.

I just bought the 32's. it was on sale at their website.

it's amazing stuff, it's restorative and preventative maintenance. I've actually got it on my seat right now working it's magic.

hey have a question - what do I use if the leather is already hard and beef jerky like?

I can always buy a new seat but probably better to just try to rejuvenate. Or is it too late?

After a Leatherique treatment our Novillo leather always looks and feels better .
But in case of damage or cracks in the leather it's too late for the base treatment with rejuvenator oil and prestine clean .
That's why Leatherique has also a restore kit with the color to match .

damn that guy's seats were worse than mine. Maybe not. lol.

So the rejuvenator is the one that really softens it up and then the cleaner keeps it clean.

I can do the dye a lot later no need for that yet.
