Also been looking at reviews for leather cleaning, will be interested in the replies.
So far I am leaning towards Dr Leather gear.

I can't say as I've ever used either but I'm interested in the replies.

I recently picked up a full black leather trim for my Peugeot 108. It must be rare as it's for a 3 door model and only the 4 doors have leather on the current line up.

I got it via eBay at a price substantially less than I'd offered them 3 months before hand.

As it was a breakers yard and had sat around for at least 3 months that I know of, it was utterly minging. When I put it in my car to bring it home all I could smell was oil and grease.

I spent 7 hours all in cleaning them before I fitted them. I used some old Supagard solution I'd had sat around for almost 10 years and was very impressed by it, although I've never seen it anywhere else and cannot find it online.

Until I'd cleaned them, I wasn't aware that the stitching around the side bolsters was a different colour.

I also used Autoglym leather creme after I'd given them a good clean and they actually smelt like leather again.

Funnily enough, I cleaned my leather again today but only with the Autoglym leather cleaner spray (which wasn't a patch on the above mentioned Supagard when I picked them up) and more creme.

I'm tempted to try the Collinite 855 Leather and Vinyl wax as I cannot find any reference to it on here, so if nothing else I feel like I'll be giving something back to the forum by trying it and it being my first 'review', plus I've loved every Collinite product I've ever used.

Dr Leather gets my vote. Spray goes much further.

A quality water-based cleaner is the way to go

To be fair, I have used a lot of leather cleaners but to be honest, you only need to use one; Dr. Leather

Also buy Dr. Leather Dye Block if you or any of your passengers wear jeans, it really does help!! (I have almost-white leather so this is an absolute must for me).
