Beige Leather..If You Have How Do You Keep It Clean?

I'm still thinking about doing a trade for a 2010 FX4 Lariat. It is pueblo gold with beige (actually very light tan) leather. I'm concerned with keeping it looking nice. I understand about using Lexol. If you have this color interior I would appreciate hearing from you as to really how hard is it to keep clean/looking nice. Thanks.

It's not hard at all. I use armor-all leather care from Wal Mart and it has taken off any stain ive gotten on the leather with ease, even ink and grease. The biggest problem areas are going to be the plastic on the lower part of the door and the pieces running by the seats. If you hit them with your boots or anything it will put a black scuff mark on them. I found that bug and tar remover will take anything off the plastic with no problem. The kind I use is in a black bottle but I cant remember the name. I work in the asphalt paving industry and the bug and tar remover will even take asphalt off the plastic parts. Long story short marks and scuffs are definitely going to show more on that color leather and plastic but they are not hard to get rid of.

Just find a good leather cleaner and a seperate conditioner
You can even just use a mild soap and warm water to clean it and let it dry a day and then use the conditioner. I usually just rub it on in the evening and let it set up over night. Some conditioners are like a wax and have to be wiped off after they are dry, I haven't used any like that I prefer the lotion kind, I usually look for one that has a leather scent.

I have the same beige leather in my truck. I think leather seats are easy up-keep...I use mild soap and warm water to clean them. As for leather conditioning...I use ArmorAll Leather Care Protectant. Works for me...

I use lexol on my beige leather and it is not real hard to keep clean. It does show up the dirt easier on the plastic parts but it comes off rather easy. My leather had some stains on it in my 04 but it came off with a little elbow grease and Lexol......

Easy. Park truck. Lock it. Throw keys down sewer.

(Coming from a powerstroke tech that has a truck with beige cloth interior)

listen up! this is the hands down best way to clean beige leather seats! i am a clean freak and i know how the best way to get your beige seats looking brand new. SCRUBBING BUBBLES BATHROOM CLEANER !!! and dont freak out....leather is tougher than you think..and this works. spray it on and use the plastic scrubber that is built into the cap. then..condition. period. Even if you think your seats are clean...you would be suprised what lurks in the tiny "nooks" in the leather.
