King ranch leather

I'm sure this question has been asked before, what does everyone on here recommend for cleaning and conditioning the King ranch seats?

I use the Lexol leather cleaner, have done so for the past 5 years. I do not clean them often with this, maybe twice a year. I do however oil the seats about every two months. Hot weather is heck. Seats are holding up great. Hope this helps

the Lexol conditioner and cleaner is what the MFG recommends .. but this Leather is a PITA

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

Ford and King Ranch recommend a damp rag to clean and King Ranch bottled conditioner to finish up. The King Ranch conditioner is made by Brother Corp. and is sold in the same exact form through Duragloss available at your local CarQuest. It's what I use and my seats remain new looking after 8 years.

My local Ford dealer carries the King Ranch conditioner, so if you want to try it you can check your dealer and see if they have some. That being said I think Leather CPR and Leather Honey are better than any of the other conditioners I've used.

Yep I've tried both leather cpr and leather honey I like the leather cpr a little better though because it's easier to apply as far as protection go though I'm not sure which is better.

Damp cloth to wipe up any dirt. Spay your choice of cleaner onto rag, then wipe.

Do the same with the conditioner.

For the steering wheel leather. skin oils are all over it. Take a very hot damp rag, and hold it on the leather. Don't rub. The heat will draw out the oils from the skin. Do this numerous times. Let dry, Use cleaner then conditioner.

At least that is what I do. Not saying it's the only way!
