I can't remember the names off hand but I went to a tack shop where they make saddles for horses and got cleaner and conditioner from the. See'n how they are the same kind of leather. It works real good, like new!

I've heard the Lexol is very good. I've never used it, but I've heard that on other forums too.

Make sure that it does not contain alcohol! It will dry out the leather

most auto parts stores carry it,I think I've even seen it at wal-mart.

I took a look at what I've been using Lexol ph leather cleaner and Equips saddle food from a leather tack shop.

one of my kids spilled lemonade on the back seat and I didn't know untill the next day! I thought I was gonna have this 4" stain! after using the lexol the stain was gone!
just follow the directions with the lexol cleaner and follow up with a good conditioner.The best thing is that fresh leather smell.
Just remember the leather in the king ranch is just like saddle leather and needs more cleaning and conditioning than your standard auto leather.

I had two king ranch trucks and i got leather conditioner from the king ranch saddle shop. They have a website that yoou can order it from. Its made for there leather so it won't harm it in any way. It worked really good. I cant say anythig as far as the lexol goes but im sure its good too

Anything that is made for saddles will work good, as that is saddle leather.
