Leatherique to restore Merc Leather Seats?


Can anyone advise if leatherique (apparently this is very good) will help soften and remove wrinkles and shine from Mercedes leather seats? What are the benefits of softening leather if that’s what leatherique can help with?

The seats are black leather, perforated on the back and base with full leather boulsters. The leather is coated, not aniline or semi aniline.

The seats have developed wrinkles/fold lines and a shiny appearance. I have steam cleaned the leather and used furniture clinic leather cleaner and treated it with conditioner but this hasn’t really made a permanent improvement to the appearance.

Any tips would be welcomed.

I am glad you you have attempted using our products. The cleaning and protection kit is great but we do not advertise it as being able to restore the condition or soften the leather or remover creases.
Car interior leather are generally painted, some refer to the leather as being connolised. So, with this mind, softening the leather can only really be done during a restoration process whereby the first stage to remove the original lacquered surface of the leather making it more porous. Then softening products can be massaged into the leather. However, you may find that on perforated leather, these products could permeate through the leather via the perforations, but I can not guarantee that this will be sufficient.
The shiny appearance may well be caused by general wear - the courser fabrics used in today clothing are more abrasive to the leather effectively polishing the surface smooth. Creases and wrinkles are different all together .. these form in the high use areas and like cardboard, leather has memory so will always fold and crease in the same areas.
We do specialise in making care and repair products for all types of leather. You are welcome to send me some photos of the problem areas, I will advise you accordingly on what products to use and what procedures to follow to restore your leather.

I hope this helps

Has anyone had experience using leatherique ?

I still have the 2 bottle set on the shelf. Can it really soak through the top colour layer of the leather and ‘condition/moisten’ the actual leather under it ?

I've recently used Dr Leather 'Leather Cleaner' on the inside of my SL55, and it has transformed it. Easy to use, it really does what it says on the tin........... OK, the spray bottle.
