I use Meguires APC diluted 10:1 and then wipe down with a wet microfiber to remove any residue. Safe and effective. For door jambs and engine compartments I go to 4:1.

In regards to Armour All APC, I've found it to be foamy, leaves a residue that needs to be rinsed thoroughly and not too great in general, although still usable in a pinch.
I found Adam's APC worked really well on carpets as well as hard surfaces. I haven't bought any in years, so it may have changed, but if not, it's pretty effective.

HI There

We have a Leather Care Kit which is great for cleaning car leather. It comes with 500ml each of Leather Ultra Clean and Leather Protection Cream.

The Ultra Clean is a general cleaner which will remove any dirt and grime from the leather’s surface. It’s a mild cleaner so is safe to use even on all leather and vinyl. You may find that you also benefit from using the Tampico Brush, as this will help to remove the dirt/grime which is trapped within the grain.
The Leather Protection Cream is used after cleaning to add an additional protective layer to the leather to help protect against spillages and make the leather easier to clean in future. It even contains UV inhibitors so is ideal for car interiors.

We’re quite proud of the fact that the Leather Ultra Clean was voted the best leather cleaner in Classics Monthly Magazine’s test of 14 leather cleaners. It was, in fact, the first product ever to be scored 20/20 in one of the magazine’s product reviews; which just goes to show it really is as good as we say it is!

+1 for this and I use the same ratios. The only comment I make is that Meguiars can really hurt your nose/throat if breathed in, especially in a closed environment. It's a great product. but don't clean the interior with your doors closed!

For this reason, I have added Surfex HD for my interior cleaning and keep Megs. for the external trim/door shuts etc.

Basically any APC correctly diluted would do the job
I usually go for 30:1 mix (30 parts water, 1 part APC).

Another vote for Gtechniq Tri-clean, it can also be watered down for general cleaning.
