How often should I treat my leather seats and interior trim?
« on: September 09, 2014, 06:53:05 pm »
Hi guys,

How often should I treat my leather seats and interior trim?
User's manual suggest you do it twice a year.
How often do you guys do it?

Thanks

What do you use? I bought some Autoglym leather cleaner. Shall I get some leather balm too?
This is my first car with leather hence the questions.;)

Bought some Autoglym leather cleaner 2 months ago so I will try that first, but after cleaning it I need to use leather care balm.
Mazda has their own leather balm/cleaner too.

Autoglym Leather Care balm, awesome product. Did all the seats today plus all the leather bits in the car. Smells pretty natural. When you apply it it does put a glossy shine one, but it disappeared after 4 hours, seems like before. Great product.

When treating leather, it is a good idea  to findout what type of leather it is as not all leather cleaners are suitable for all leathers.
