View Full Version : Seeking good leather conditioner for car seats and jackets

12-11-2004, 08:39 PM
Running out of leather care stuff (current brand of choice is Griot's Leather Care (http://www.griotsgarage.com/catalog.jsp?&SKU=11142)). Generally happy with it, and wouldn't mind sticking with it. Also open to trying something new.

Looking for a good leather conditioner that'll serve good double duty for car seats and maintenance of leather jackets. The temptation is to just pick something like Spinneybeck, but according to this thread (http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48316) it's not exactly the most economical way of going about things.

Any other suggestions?

Spinneybeck doesn't need a to be slathered on the leather, so one purchase ought to last quite a while. I picked some up from LeatherZ last year when my car came in, and I'm nowhere near to running out. Comes in a 2 bottle pack (along with a cleaner for ink stains, I think). I'm still on my first bottle and my leather looks all right to me. Perhaps I'm just not laying it on thickly enough. ;)

Whatever you end up using, smell it first. You're going to be smelling it for weeks.

i use the leather furniture care system from IKEA. (you know the funky DIY furniture store) i have been using it for years...i love the stuff. it comes with a cleaner and conditioner. and my 535is seats looked great when i sold it and i 235,000 on it.. it comes in a little box with an aplicator and the best thing is that it costs about 6 or 7 $

IMO on the Montana I wouldn't worry about it to much, as long as its a quality product.

LeatherZ guys have it on their online store.

That stuff is shiznit. Ultimate leather treating, IMO.
