care for the leather seats

What do you guys use? If I use those leather care cream, then it will fill up those tiny holes on the surface. What to do?

You might get blasted by some people for not doing a search. Not that it really matters. I have heard some people use Lexol but I use the cleaner/conditioner from the dealership. No doubt overpriced at about $15 each but if it's what they recommend why use anything else.

I did a search but nothing came up. Maybe I didn't use the right keywords...

Yeah the search does not help me either in regards to ecsaine care. So (with fear of getting flamed and blasted) is there an alternate brand to use on my ecsaine cuz I will be cleaning it alot due to child passengers.

I normally used LEXOL on leather. If the leather need to be clean, use LEXOL cleaner follow with LEXOL conditioner. Leather on my car looked as good as new after 3 yrs. About the perforated holes, I don't think it is an issue with LEXOL conditioner. You can buy LEXOL products from PEPBOY (so far this is the only place I can find Lexol around here in Dallas, btw they sold out this stuff very quick too).

FYI: Ecsaine is sold under the trademark Ultrasuede and is 60% polyester and 40% non-fibrous polyurethane (which should give you an idea of how to care for it).

Hi Pixmation! youre frm d mbworld forum right??? nice to see ya here.
getting the leather conditioner cream to your seat holes wont hurt, coz once it dries up. itll disappear in an hour or so. If you have escaine, simply wipe off excess conditioners that end up on it.

I use Meguiar's

I just got my IS300 a week ago and I've started using Meguiar's Leather Wipes. (dont know if I spelled the brandname correctly). After using the wipes, I follow-through with a clean terry cloth to remove excess conditioner/cream and luster. I dont want it too shiny.

'hope this helps.
