lumi, do a search on "leather cleaner" and/or "Meguiars" on this site and you will be presented with at least a dozen threads discussing this topic.

Some people like M's, others are partial to Lexol, Zaino and Griots.

Best thing is to do some comparison testing on your own....see which one floats your boat. It is hard to go wrong with any of the above.

Hi Lumi, Here's a thread on leather cleaners:

http://www.acuramdx.org/forums/showthread.php?threadid=3296

I bought some Meguiars to clean my SS/Ebony back in fall - it did a nice job, but I found it hard to use. It's quite thick, even hard to get out of the bottle. Also, if it's too thick on your rag, it ends up filling the perforations in the leather.

I think next time I'd use a separate leather cleaner first, and then a finishing compound - just seems like that would be a better way to get the dirt out.

Meguiars make GREAT detailing and polish products. I have not used Meguiars but am sure it is a good product.

I actually use a professional leather conditioner/cleaner and leather protectant from Heinricke leather. I figure if the stuff is GOOD enough for my $2,500.00 leather suit.. It will be good enough for my leather in my MDX.

I've used Meguiars leather cleaner/conditioner "all-in-one". The other brands of all-in-one leather cleaner/conditioner I've tried are Turtle Wax, Armor All, and 3M's Refresh Vinyl & Leather Protectant with cleaner.

The Turtle Wax brand and the 3M stuff are the non-oiliest of the 4 I tried.. The 3M stuff does not have any scent but I kinda like the scent of the Turtle Wax stuff while the other remaining two smelled too chemically...

Meguiar's is the pastiest/thickest... it will plug up a lot of those little holes in the seat but it's nothing that a shop-vac won't cure.

One last thing about Meguiars, it is the most expensive of the 4?

My personal preference is for the the non-oily stuff because I like to clean/condition the steering wheel and shift knob too and the oily stuff makes my hands kind of sticky when I drive...

Hope this helps... Welcome to a great forum!!!

meguiar's is pretty thick and have noticed if you apply too much it fills the holes up.....annoying. I have adjusted my use of the product by lightly applying it from my detailing rag, then working it in to form an even coat. I think it does a fine job!

I have used Coach leather cleaner and conditioner in the past...and it worked like a CHAMP..lightweight, easy to apply, very concentrated, and lasts (pleasant smell too). However, for a 4oz bottle @ $7.00 . .it may be worth it for some, but not for all.

I am anxiously waiting for my Zaino group buy purchase of Z-9 and Z-10.. . . . .can't wait to compare the results . . .

Poly, if you are like most of us, you will like Zaino. You really have to slobber it on to clog the perf holes on the seats. The trick is to apply it to the applicator and spread it around evenly.

Z10 dries to a very slight shine (unlike some oily products, and more than Girots, which leaves more of a satin look).

I use separate applicators for Z9 and Z10....both wash out completely with dishwashing liquid and water.

And they both smell like leather.....enjoy! Tell us how you like it when you get 'em!
