So you’ve got 2 possible products there to use - why not give them a try initially to see if they do anything at all, before buying something else ?

They may not be up to much, but they maybe okay. Give them a go

Yeah I guess you're right, can't hurt.

Not sure I agree that either will be any good for removing shine Andy, esp the first with a conditioner built in. For all it's worth.. a tenner?!

However... toothbrush.. really? That's just inefficient and any toothbrush I've used has stiffer bristles, overkill for the job.

A good cleaner and gentle agitation with a microfibre cloth or soft detailing brush is plenty for a steering wheel not overly shiny like yours. If you go for the leather wipes you won't obviously need anything but a microfibre to mop up the residue with.

Aaaah, missed that bit mate (very small picture on phone), yes, I'd tend to agree with you there and then would recommend buying a cleaner

After being used on my steering which had been cleaned once a week with a mild apc mix and a detailing brush to aggitate - did leave it 'matte' but was too shiney still for me, looked unatural and, obviously not clean lol

They seem to be out of stock everywhere at the minute but I'll keep looking because they should be perfect for applying the cleaner I've ordered.

How abrasive are these pads - just wondered if it is acting like a magic rubber on leather and taking the coating off ?

Not that abrassive, modern leather is clear coated anyway
