I want to say thank you to OP for giving me the motivation to get my leather treated with Leatherique. I followed the instructions and results were amazing! Iím definitely going to do it once a year. Here are the before and after but the pictures donít do itís justice. I will upload some more pictures tomorrow, I couldnít get the right angle because of the sun.

I use this stuff on my Z4. Love it. Is it necessary to keep the rejuvenator product soaking in the leather outside in the heat? I've got an M3 now with black novillo leather that I'd like to clean up this week.

.
I also use Leatherique for years.
I tried using bare hands or a small cotton cloth.
I did not used as much as shown.
I am open to try that next.

What are these products called nowadays?

Also, can anyone recommend a moisture absorber for winter storage?

Thanks OP for keeping this thread alive! Anybody tried this this process on SS color leather? Anything I should do differently? Mine is almost close to brand new (car has only 10k miles) but since it's a vert and I drive top down mostly I want to make sure I use the right leather cleaning product.

Currently using Chemical Guys but I dont like the artificial smell.

TIA

If your leather Isn't dirty , just use the Leatherique 'Rejuvenator oil only .
It doesn't matter in which color the leather is . SS color is fine as well

Usually I do a quick clean and condition every month, hence the leather is pretty solid.

I see Leatherique 'Rejuvenator oil will require extensive process; anything you recommend for quick clean and condition?

For a quick clean I use just a damp cloth .
No . I tried pretty much everything . All I can say is : Rejuvenator oil is the best leather treatment 2 X / year .

I agree , it is extensive . But It's very rewarding afterwards , when you see that factory matte finish again .
The smell is also 10/10 !

I wonder if it is okay to just wipe off the leatherique with a towel on a steamer? Seems faster to do and uses less water than a bucket of warm water.

Steam might work. Interesting idea. But the water was necessary to prevent residue in my experience.
