Leather is only skin and must be treated in much the same way as your own skin – dirt and sunlight are the enemies. When mechanics get dirt ingrained in their fingers it eventually cracks them, and the same happens to leather – dirt must not be allowed to get deep into the creases and pores of leather. Human perspiration in particular attacks leather, so regular cleaning of your leather trimmed steering wheel is a must.
Any product that promises to clean and condition in one cannot do either job properly. To condition it must soak in immediately, therefore it must take the dirt in with it. Any conditioner that needs leaving for a long time and then polishing off cannot soak in completely, therefore it leaves a sticky residue, to which dust and dirt will cling.
Gliptone Liquid Leather Intensive Cleaner is pH balanced to the pH of fine leather. Mild yet concentrated it is suitable for cleaning all sealed leathers, and is especially good at removing ingrained dirt from the creases of neglected leather when agitated gently with a soft brush (available in our Accessories section). Follow with Liquid Leather Conditioner or Liquid Leather Conditioner & Waterproofer for extra protection on convertible interiors.
Use Liquid Leather Gentle Cleaner in between treatments (especially on convertible interiors) to prevent build up of dirt and help to keep your precious leather soft, supple and in superb condition.

The picture below shows a genuine Jaguar seat, half of which has merely been cleaned and conditioned with Liquid Leather – it has NOT been re-coloured.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: Wipe over leather with soft damp cloth to remove surface dirt. Apply cleaner neat from the bottle and GENTLY STIR into the leather with a soft brush. DO NOT SCRUB. Leave for a few minutes then stir again, finally wiping off the dirt with a damp cloth. Repeat if necessary. Leave leather to dry, then apply two coats of Liquid Leather Conditioner or Liquid Leather Conditioner & Waterproofer – this will soak in immediately, no polishing off is required if you apply sparingly, and a couple of hours later you can use the leather.
