Soft or stiff brush

Using dodo leather cleaner and keep reading conflicting threads
Some say a soft brush on leather others say a stiff brush

I have a vikan
www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/vikan-upholstery-nail-brush
Which I bought for the carpets but not used yet or should I buy a soft one

Recommendations please for a good brush or should I apply with a pad ??

It's a 9 year old honda civic if that makes a difference

I use something along the lines of a yellow bristled nail brush if the leathers caked, soft enough not to mark leather but still tough enough to get some scrubbing done
Other than that, I just use a towel to give them a wipe down every other week WITH ONR and leather protectant

I use a colourlock leather brush, I'm sure I paid about £6 for it. It's not much different to a shoe shine brush. Can pick them up for £2 or £3

I use a set of shoe shine brushes I bought from Morrisons! They seem to be perfectly safe on the leather in my car. The same shop also sell a smaller leather brush with a long handle which is useful for tight spaces.

Same here, the Mrs thought it was a shoe shine brush and promptly burst into laughter when I told her how much I'd paid for it, (note to self, lie in future)

Our lass suggested the same thing while doing her Morrison shop online

Was that the 2 brush combo

I must admit I did feel a tad ripped off when I received it and realised it was basically a shoe brush.

Yep, that's the ones. if I get chance I'll take a photo tomorrow. They work perfectly fine in my experience. I've done leather seats, headlining, steering wheel and parcel shelf with them.

Hi

We have a brush called the Tampico brush that we recommend for cleaning leather and fabric. It has stiff, hollow natural fibre bristles that are strong enough to get into the grain and pore of leather and lift the dirt and grime out without damaging the surface and being hollow, the bristles also further help absorb the dirt off the leather.

Tampico Brush: https://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/Tampico_Brush
