Lexol cleaner and conditioner or Zymol products. Both are very good products and do not smell bad!

Don't use the cleaner! It can stain your leather! I use the Lexol conditioner only. Don't be afraid to lay on several coats. If you have a tractor supply near by, get yourself a bottle of Lexol and a saddle sponge to apply the conditioner. Just don't lay the conditioner on in thick coats, several thin coats so it'll soak in better.

My leather went from a dried out almost grey looking color to a deep red in about 5 treatments over a week. Now I just do it monthly.

I grew up on a horse farm and was wondering of Lexol would work. Thanks guys!

Yeah Lexol conditioner works amazing, just don't use the cleaner. A buddy of mine ruined his entire truck's leather with the cleaner and I tested a small obscure spot of mine and it stained it too. The KR leather is a lot softer and pourus than most saddle leathers so it doesn't like the cleaners too well.

Regardless, using just the conditioner on mine it's actually cleaned up and hydrated my leather quite nicely.

I have not had any problem with the cleaner, but all my leather is black and may not show the staining. Thanks for the correction, I would have hated to be responsible for screwing up some very nice leather seats. Thanks.

No worries. The cleaner works great on the Harley and Lariat seats but is no good for the King Ranch leather, it's a completely different leather. No harm done! haha

Do a search for Leather Honey. Found at tack stores or very fine leather shops. Alot goes a long way. Tried Lexol. Leather CPR. Mink oil. But couldn't get the spot on the drivers seat that gets rubbed pretty good when getting in and out to soften up and return to original condition until I used Leather Honey. Just have some time because it needs a minium of 2hrs dry time before use and overnight is better. Hopefully you can fnd a local source for it otherwise will have to order online. I did my seats front and rear and all leather trim and used @ 2oz of product. 8oz bottle cost me $16 and well worth it. Good Luck....Steve

I never had any problems with the lexol cleaner on mine. It's not my favorite stuff though.

I want to try this stuff next:
Buffalo Butter - Advanced Leather Balm - Chilhowee Motorcycle Leather
