Leather cleaners and conditioner

Just wondering what people recommend for leather cleaner and a conditioner, the leather in my BMW is starting to get a bit worn on the edge of the bolster and a couple of small cracks. I have quite a few auto finesse products so was going to try there leather cleaner and conditioner but if there’s anything else better or easier to use etc please let me know thanks

Painted or dyed

Is your leather painted or dyed as that makes a big difference

Dyed leathers has open pours and will benefit from a leather conditioner or "feed" as it will be absorbed

Painted leather has closed pours because its been painted the paint blocks the pours and leaves a solid coat of flex-able paint so leather conditioner or "feed" is no good as it wont be absorbed by the leather and will come of on your clothes and what ever else comes in to contact with it.

Painted leather will benefit from CarPRO PERL and it can be cleaned with a mild APC

Dyed leather will benefit from any leather feed/conditioner and it can be cleaned with a specific leather cleaner.

You should determine the leather coating type before looking for a product

Another vote for Dr Leather spray cleaner. I bought a bottle a few weeks ago and it's excellent stuff.

Just switched to Dodo juice supernatural cleaner and sealant combo. Leaves a lovely natural matt finish and easy to use.

Me too. Leaves a really nice finish. No slip to the leather either
