Leather: how to preserve good seats.

I used to not be afraid of ruining leather.
But, after having my 911 leather for ten years, I put Lexol on the leather, and shortly ruined it.
Within the month, the leather dash and seats started drawing up and pulling out of the seams.
The reason I link it to the Lexol is the timing; of course it could have been the age.

Any advice on how to care for the leather properly?

When detailing my car for Concours last year, I ran the vac through to remove debris then used Autoglym Leather Cleaner and a soft brush to clean the seats, followed by Autoglym Leather Care Balm to protect. Very happy with the result.

Gliptone liquid leather products and a shoe cream in the correct colour that contains no silicone something like Saphir and I assure you you can not do better than that as someone who works with leather. I have tried autoglym and I would say its very decent but I wouldn't recommend it.

However saying all this it also depends what kind of leather you are working with the leather in a 190 is top.

Bought this highly rated balm to protect leather from amazon

Comes in a tub, a bit like a hard car wax to apply.

Really gives the leather depth. Used on the bright blue leather bolsters in my 2008 mini. Also gave the tub to my dad who did his whole settee with excellent results!

Great price too and tub will last forever.

Not sure why that amazon link keeps going to amazon usa. If you type “renapur” into amazon uk it should be circa £12

Thank you Deleted User & Daveycooper for the tips.

My dads recently purchased C Class and my mum's recently purchased B Class both have half leather.
That should help preserve it

Hi
For cleaning the seats I use Pears Glycerine soap. Plenty of info on the web out there on this. It's a very cheap, but good, cleaner. You will need to feed the seats after. My seats at 147,00 miles cleaned with pears soap and fed with Autoglym leather cream..
