Thank you for taking the time to create such a 'reader friendly' review mate. For new people like me, this is the kind of write up that really helps make informed decisions!

Thanks again!


Adam.

I use Dr Leather on mine and i think its great. I do a deep clean every 4 to 6 months with the spray cleaner followed by a layer of dye blocker as a protection layer. Then i use the wipes as a maintenance wipe as and when required and this keeps the seats and wheel looking great

just did my wheel yesterday, didnt think it needed it but the dirt that came off with just some degreaser was awful.

will give it a proper going over when this product arrives.

Firstly I have to say I have deliberated on whether to make a post, in case it is misconstrued, but I do want to say thank you to jbenekeorr who has spent so much time completing this review. Clearly a lot of thought and work has gone in to it, and it makes us feel proud that we do have a good product.

I am concerned about the comments on the wipes, as really there should be no difference. Exactly the same formulation goes in to the wipes, and so it should yield exactly the same effect. In addition we put in a large amount of fluid in to the wipes, and so the dryness on the first few wipes makes me wonder if it was a very old batch.

As for the lid snapping, I will be honest in that the plastic is not the most flexible on the cap hinge. We have looked at different options over the past few years, and we were looking to try to source a different compound, almost rubber like, but so far we cannot source anything at a sensible price. Please let us know if you know of any better options out there!!!!

We are always looking to try to improve the formulation, but we have to constantly balance all the various aspects of the product. Recently we have seen a competitors product that looks to clean well, but then we found it had an extremely alkaline pH and upon repeated testing on the finish we found it was causing micro-damage to the grain. That is why we feel our product has the best balance we can create at present, and with a view to looking after the leather coating. We always complete full physical testing on our products in the lab to ensure they complement to cleaning process. And in truth is why we only do leather products, as our main core business is developing leather technologies for brands and tanners around the world.

So I'll sign off for now. But rest assured we are always happy to have feedback, good or bad, to generate a product that is the best for our consumers.

Best wishes,

Darryl
