Default Leather Tech vs. Leather Cleaner/Conditioner

Hello folks. School and family life have kept me out of the loop so I'm just finding out about the new Leather Tech stuff.

I've been using Mothers Leather Cleaner and Leather Conditioner (as well as VLR) for my Ford leather so I was wondering what differences the Leather Tech line would offer over these older products.

Thanks in advance...

They are a different delivery system, and different formulations.

The foaming cleaner works very, very well. I've read reports where users have mentioned it would take stains out that other cleaners wouldn't.

The gel cream is nice, because as a solid it's more friendly around perforated leather. It also has a matte finish that isn't greasy or oily like some other conditioners. It's water repellency seems much better than anything else I've tried.

If I owned our other leather products, I wouldn't throw them away, but when I ran out I'd certainly give these a try.

Hi, Forrest - I'm a St. Louisan, too. Small world. Anyway, I bought both Leather Tech products a couple of weeks ago and like the results. My question is, how often can you safely use these products, especially the conditioner? My car is 9 years old and, judging by the improvement in the leather with the first use, I was thinking of using them frequently. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

In the summer/hot months, every 3-4 weeks would be appropriate, especially if your 911 is sitting out in the heat. 4 weeks works for me.

Cleaning can be much more infrequently - 4-6 months isn't uncommon, unless an "accident" happens.

Welcome to wax forum. We picked up our Mike Shannon bobble heads last night at the game. Living here makes it convenient for travel - I'm in the middle of everywhere.

While I'm still happy with the results of the LT conditioner, I'm having a problem with the fact that both of my cars have perforated seats so I end up having to use the LT conditioner only on the non-perforated parts of the seats. If I use it on the perforated parts it gets into the holes and it's nearly impossible to get out - very frustrating. Suggestions, anyone?

Apply it thin, thin, thin. Then no issue of clogging holes.
