Now lets hope for your sake the pollen will be dissapear with these crazy storms today. Jeez it's horrible here. I will definitely be doing this in the next couple weeks.

Pollen is not an issue as I never drive with windows down and extremely rarely with sunroof open.

Leather Masters is a far superior product to the Leatherique cleaning kit. I recommend it for future use

I consulted Phil at detailers domain and he recommended Leather Master but Only because of it's ease of use

I didn't mind the extra work and am told by two different detailers that the learherique is a superior product but requires more work and time

A word to the wise: I wouldn't google "Leather Masters" unless you're in the privacy of your own home...

I am assuming the product is this and not this.

Nice work! I love a minty interior

What is that rubber(?) piece you have in the cupholder tray and where did you find it? I need something like that.

I was recommended Einzett Lederphledge (mild leather cleaner & matte conditioner) from his site...GREAT product for light conditioning, OEM matte finish, and regular leather maintenence.

I've also used Leatherique and liked the results. I've used it on shoes and suade-type materials too. It does NOT change the color whereas other cleaners can darken the material. The only draw-back I see is the price since using it becomes quite addictive.

Just finished using Leatherique for the first time and I like the results.

Do you need use a protectant afterwards or just use Leatherique 2-4 per year as directed?

I've seen before and afters with leatherique and faded leather interiors seems to regain their color. In my instance (black leather) can i expect the same with leather master? I have the full leather dash and am looking into refreshing all the pieces and the seats.
