My seats are quite clean, so I haven't had to use a cleaner thus far, but I've been using Leather Honey Conditioner and it's been pretty good. It's a PITA to put on because it's quite thick and sticky, but if you leave it in the garage or set it in the sun for a couple minutes it thins out and goes on like a dream. Lather it on decently thick and leave it over night and then wipe off the next day and the leather loves it.

Unfortunately, my driver's seat lost a lot of its matte finish from earlier life, but this seems to be keeping the leather very hydrated without any oily residue.

Just applied the leatherique rejuvenator earlier this morning and itís killing me to wait. Some parts (headrests) seemed to Ďspotí a little bit as it absorbed, normal?

Yes, reapply as needed so there's a layer of oil on top of the leather. I let it sit for 3 days, checked it once or twice a day to see if I needed to reapply oil. After about 24-36hrs, the leather seems like it's gotten its full and no more reapply is needed.

Thanks. This is what I did but glad to hear itís not out of the norm.


I was always in the camp of Ďmy interior is cleaní, but doing this brings a whole new level. Thank you to everyone in this thread for the motivation to actually do this after having the supplies for some time. Now I have to do my X5M also.

I had Leatherique sitting on a shelf for literally years before I used it.

When you go to wipe it off, it'll take some back and forth between warm water, the pristine clean, and a dry microfiber. You're not done until you get all of the sticky residue off.

Some suggest skipping the pristine clean and just using warm water but I haven't tried that myself.

Yes I skipped the pristine clean based on the advice on here, and it took a few passes of warm water towel and dry microfiber to get it all off. Itís dark now so tough to tell and Iíll probably do a once over in the AM but even now the results are great. Never thought the steering wheel would look like this again, and the bolsters also.
