i think this person is asking what to use on escaine not what escaine is used for...

i havent had any problems with stains or such and ive had my IS since July 1st...the side of the doors, which are also escaine do get dirty pretty fast but ive found just plain old water and a cotton towel get it looking like new with minimal elbow grease. my ivory interior is lookin pretty damn new. but this has all been discussed so many damn times i am wondering why you didnt use search before asking.

OK I did the search, and it seems the answer is dont use anything to protect it, and clean it with just plain old soap and water. Not the answer I was ooking for, I was hoping to find that the only way to maintain it was with an herbal/synthetic formulation that costs a fortune and can only be obtained by travelling to Thailand in perswon and climbingn to the top of the highest mountain alone with secret squirrel password. Oh well.

Ok, OK...I'll let you all IS300 owners on my secret...

LINT ROLLER

It's the best...

Besides the damp cloth, the lint roller cleans the escaine efficiently.

Try it...

lint roller huh. very creative i must say!

i called a lexus dealer a while back and they suggested to use just a towel and water (like what don has been doing). they told me not to use the leather stuff. i guess you could just use it on the leather part if you want! but try it out first b4 to see if it works!

someone posted something about escaine stating how its a microsuede and the way its composed its automatically stain resistant and you shouldn't need any chemical protectants. i bought some 3m scotchguard but i DONT use it becuase the label specifically says "do not use on suede"
