Ha. I usually don't follow, but that always gets me in trouble!

I'll give it a good clean and buff tonight when I get home!

Will let you know.

I really like Kali Leather life. Easy to apply and smells good. Better than leatherique to me.

I bought some a few years ago - not a fan.

How do you treat a new leather upholstery that's only a year old? I just want to keep my new Hyde fresh and clean.

For newer hides like yours, I would consider the Griot's Garage line of leather products. they have a 3 in 1 leather crème or spray that would be great for ongoing conditioning and maintenance. https://www.griotsgarage.com/search....y=leather+care

That's not an easy one, because your leather is new and I would hate to give anyone an advice that would turn out to be the wrong one just by bad luck...(by this, I mean an unexpected reaction between product and leather, which could happen, because we never know).
If the car was mine, I know I would use leatherique without hesitation (rejuvinator oïl, then prestine clean) once a year.
BUT it is not my car, and I didn't had the hassle to find the leather, find the shop to do the work, paid the leather and the hours, so...

I did it over again this weekend. I just used a dry cloth after the pristine clean, still have a shinier look than my passenger seat. I need to take a picture so you know what I'm talking about.
