: 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 ( 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 ( 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.
