Hi Sue , would you know the best dilution for maintaining the leather.
I like to just spray and wipe down the leathers now and again just to freshen them up. Then follow it with some leather conditioner.

Cheers

1.12 is a good one for regular wipe downs.

I just cleaned the interior of my RRS (to take brother-in-law to his wedding next weekend) after it took a battering over Easter - 16 month old son in car, plus his buggy (because dog in boot) and loads of mud all over seats. I used AD FAB (diluted) then treated with MEGS "Gold Class Rich Leather Cleaner and Conditioner". Perfectly clean and extremely supple (have used the MEGS before on it).

As a by-note, I used to work for one of the world's biggest interior trim manufacturers and we built seats for JLR in the UK. I know that our "leather cleaner" was basically very diluted detergent such as you'd use for doing the washing up (NOTE: this was cleaner, NOT conditioner or protector). It was branded and very expensive!

I use AS leather cleaner - mixed and used correctly its great, always follow up with a conditioner though. Warm water is best, and use a synthetic chamois
