It's always fun to throw out the word 'leather' in a detailing forum occasionally to see how confused anyone reading could get within a few posts.

so...

LTT is a two stage application
Furniture clinic is a two stage application
Dr Leather is a one stage application?

I will certainly post up my thoughts when i have tried one of these out.

I've done my own tests, if you want a matt finish that lasts ages dont condition , if you want shiny crap looking seats within 2 weeks use a conditioner


Products from LTT or Dr Leather are excellent

I tried the Dr Leather cleaner today applied with a microfibre and (what residue there was) buffed with a soft clean Sonus Der Wunder towel.

Got to admit I am very very impressed with the cleaning process and just as importantly (if not more) the finish of the product.

They look brand new, very nice and matt finish.
Dont feel greasy, they just feel like they are supposed to.

They've removed the slight shine off the drivers seat from the constant getting in and out which I was pleased with too.
Was a bit late and dark when I did it today so I will get some pics up tomorrow.

Thanks to the contributors in this thread and to Darryl @ Dr Leather for a spot on product.

Looking forward to keeping my eye on the condition of the seats over the next few weeks.

There is a great deal of conflicting information on leather care being put out by leather experts themselves who use baffling pseudo scientific techno speak as another marketing ploy, which makes it difficult to find a **********, unbiased answer. Here is one ********** truth –you are dealing with the leathers finish, not the hide itself

I’ve always been amazed that such a simple detailing task like the cleaning and care of ethyl carbamate (95% of modern automotive upholstery is finished leather, a hide protected by a covering of urethane) has been made into something so complicated, it seems that the only people who have anything to gain from this have a vested interest in the sale of products.
