I was told Tesco baby wipes are good for cleaning leather seats Exclamation you will need to protect them also from time to time, not sure which is best though Question

Leather wipes from halfords, Sheraton leather wipes from your local supermarket. I use the Sheraton creme cleaner and protector paste, cleans the leather nice and protects as well as being cheap!
There probably is a lot better out there tho!

Not sure about cleaning to be honest, but I use the Auto Glym leather clean to protect, goes on and buffs off well and doesn't leave the leather greasy or too shiny. It says you should clean first, which you probably should, but I tend to just use that! Razz
