One Dr wipe for the leather side arms and one Dr wipe for the seat cushions.

My sofa has never looked cleaner

Use the dr leather liquid cleaner stuff and a brush first then maintain with their wipes! Their stuff is fantastic and your car will smell like a car with a leather interior again!

They come off with another wipe with a DrL wipe. But just annoying.
Surely if you get streaks on the leather after using the wipes then they are leaving something behind on the surface?

Are you sure it hasn't loosened previous conditioning material??? We have tried to simulate this and cannot get the same effect. Call me tomorrow on 07988388838 and let's see if we can find the solution.

Cheers

I've not seen this problem with Dr Leather Wipes and I have been 'caught' in the rain with the soft top down.

The only time I had residue on the leather seats using the Dr Leather Wipes is when the previous owner had conditioned the leather seats.

Hope that helps in any way.

In all honesty it wasn't my problem I just thought it strange that something was streaking if the wipes don't leave anything behind. Thanks for the offer though! Looking at the pic again it seems the streaks may be from a product applied to the door handle that has run down?

We actually tried to simulate your issue on 6 different types of leather. And we couldn't get it to do it. So we are a little bit mystified but as I say I'm happy to try to help on this. Is there streaking above the door handle in any way???

Cheers,

Dr Leather
