leather care

i have never had leather seats before and was wondering what is best to use to clean and protect. i live in vegas so it is hot and the sun is bad. i have the med. stone color. it looks like the dye from my pants stain the seat a little too. i have a friend that uses windex on his chevy but i think the fords deserve a little more respect. ha ha ha.

The very best thing you can use is saddle soap, I have found a liquid kind at Wal Mart in the animal feed section (called saddle soap, clear bottle with tan liquid). This stuff dries in seconds so you can wipe it off and it keeps your leather soft. If you look at the Ford brand and look up the MSDS sheets on it you will see it is made out of the same ingredients as saddle soap.
I like the liquid better than the paste for its ease of use.

do the research,
use to be "Hyde-Food" by Connoly Bros England their Out of business now all thats left is
"Lexol". Cleaner and Conditioner. Orange and Brown container
anything else will harm your leather. Soap, Windex, Armor, silicone, sweat you name it... it will harm it...
