Anyone try the Lexus Brand Leather Cleaner

I'm sure you've seen it at your dealership. Has anyone tried it, if so, what did you think?

So far, I haven't used anything on mine, but I use Lexol on my wife's car and I HATE IT. I think it leaves the seats clean, but chalky. I will NOT put Lexol on my IS.

I know many praiser leatherique, but I've also been told the Lexus cleaner/conditioner is quite good. Ever try it?

never tried it, but I use Lexol twice a month, I think it makes the dashboard look especially good(the conditioner not the cleaner) I never had anything else to compare the lexol to. But I am going to get some of the Lexus made stuff and try it oot.

Do you use too much Lexol on a particular area? I have it and love it, never heard a complaint. Huh.

I think Lexol is more of a conditioner than a cleaner, may want to wipe everything down with a wet towel and then dry it, then on to the Lexol.

Let us know how the Lexus stuff works out.

Eric,

I've tried it so many different ways. More product, less product, damp applicator, dry applicator...

I just can't shake that "chalky" feel to it. Don't get me wrong, I don't want oily and sticky either, but maybe moist or supple is the feel I'm going for. Does that make sense?

I wonder if there is a better product for our dash, being that it's plastic?

The lexol works great, been using on the dash for months, stumbled acrossd it when my X- detailer used it. I say X-detailer because he used an acid on my stock wheels and marked them.

Only thing that touches my dash in Meg's Quik Interior Detailer. Goes on light, clean look, no oils, no grease and smells amazing.
