Does Acura recommend a leather cleaner and a leather conditioner? And what do people here recommend? I live in Texas, so the inside temps get brutally hot. Fortunately, the car's parked at home and at work.
Some experts recommended leather cleaners and conditioners but Honda says your seats just need dusting, vacuuming and the occasional wipe down. And the simplest way to prolong the life of your leather interior is to vacuum it regularly.
I've been using leatherique products on the leather in my M3 and have been very happy with the results. Deep cleaning is a two step process and requires the leather to sit with a product on it for about 24 hours in a warm location and is recommended once a year or so. General light cleaning is as you'd expect, work on/wipe off.
I have in the past always purchased the leather conditioner and cleaner from Acura parts department. (cheaper at Honda parts store) It always held up my leather like new, but decided to try something different with a nice smell and purchased Gliptone from Amazon. This product is great also and it has the leather smell to it.
I have a 1999 Acura CL, the guy who sold me the car spray painted the entire interior with Dupli-Color Vinyl & Fabric "desert sand color." Car seats and door panels. Unfortunately he didn't do a very good job. He also spray painted all the leather seats. He did such a terrible job that I can easily scrape off the paint with a gentle scratch. It stains my clothes just sitting on it. Any idea how I might remove the paint from the leather seats and panels?
