i am a great fan of Dr leather products but for older leather or some that has had bit of a harder life then i have resorted to

Its best used on a sunny day and left on so its not a quick treatment kind of product.

you would still need a cleaner first though up to you if you buy both products or go for another make of cleaner.

Wow quick reply, so you would work it in with a MF cloth or brush and this should help to bring some softness back then.

Can i add my findings?

I've been using Gliptone on my leather (after reading reviews on here) for about 2years.
But i'm finding more and more it takes ages to soak in and leave the finish shiney and quite sticky..

So after reading this thread i thought i'd try Dr Leather.

Now lucky for me, my seats have a nice divide in them so testing the two is easy...

Gliptone on the top part, Dr Leather on the bottom. Applied as the markers say. Pic taken after 10mins.



After 20mins.



The Gliptone took 1 -2 hours to dry in fully. Leaving it shiney and sticky.
The Dr Leather left the surface satin finished and not sticky at all... (But don't smell as nice)
Better pic of the surface..



No i founds a down side to the Dr Leather wipes... If rain water gets on any thing treated (as my door cards did when i had to unload the car in the rain)
I found you get very bad streaks on the surface...





They come off with another wipe with a DrL wipe. But just annoying.

Try Gtechniq L1 on top of the Dr Leather Wipe treatment to boost UV protection and offer additional water resistance.

Can Dr Leather stuff be used on leather sofas? May as well get something I can use in the car and in the house.
