Lexol and king ranch problem!!!!!

I went to condition my seats in my truck with lexol because Ive heard of it working well on the seat, Well it turned my seat almost black!! is this normal?
Will it go away, if not is there a way to reverse it?

Sorry if I'm dumb and this is a normal thing, Ive never owned anything with leather like this and this is my first time to condition it.

Oh, crap Sounds like you may have just darkened your seats

Maybe that stuff has a bunch of water in it that will dry and lighten up. I hope so. Good luck

KR Leather

I will lighten up. I use the same product on my KR. KR leather is not sealed and there takes in the conditioners, and that why it looks dark. Don't use any other product util this one dries. I thought I did the same thing.

I've got King Ranch other stuff (not my truck ) and it seems to take the leather conditioner best by hand. Otherwise the absorbency of the rag seems to compete with the absorbency of the leather.

Enjoy that KR leather. For softness and feel that stuff is the best there is

Thats what i was thinking!!


I lucked into a king ranch, they sold the truck I wanted right before I got to the dealership, and someone had just traded the king ranch in and they gave me a great deal on it. I guess just so they had a quick turn around.

My wife say's I love my truck more than her. I say she's right j/k

I recently have been in search of a good conditioner for my ranch seats and this is the best i could find. I went to a big saddle shop and told them what i had, the young lady came out and looked and said "Id tell you to use the same stuff i use on my "Show" saddles" So i did and the stuff is great. The first day you put it on there the seat always seems a little sticky but after it warms up once it goes away. Here is the stuff "Passier Lederbalsam" Name is a little funny because it comes from germany. Here ya go ReactorPanel Saddle Company :: Manufacturers :: Passier

If you were close enough id let ya try mine first.

Saddle Soap

Did you use the saddle soap then the conditioner? What is the texture of the leather a couple day after you applied it. I would like to get a smother finish to my front seats.

Leather

The texture was very similar to my back seats which never see sun. It dosent really soften the leather up much but it just gives it that new king ranch seat look. No saddle soap yet, i just use baby shampoo and water to clean the seats first. Mainly now i just clean the steering wheel and handles.
