Hi

Bought a new Acura yesterday and wanted some opinions on the best leather upholstery conditioner you folks use.

Thanks

Dittos on the Griots spray. It’s a excellent product and the spray is preferable to lotions if you have perforated seats which I suspect you do.

A little goes a long way.

Works great on the furniture and on the leather in the DuraMax.

If your car is NEW, it doesn't need a leather conditioner with a cleaner built in. As such, I recommend Leather Honey.

His seats still need periodic cleaning. It is my opinion that it is more important to keep modern leather clean than to slop conditioner all over it.

A couple spritzes of the Griot's spray on a leather brush and a quick wipe of any excess will keep them as clean and conditioned as they need to be for the life of the vehicle.

1 part Woolite to 10 parts water is all you need. Leather conditioners are a joke on modern auto leather.

My long time favorite has been Armor All Leather Protectant. Chemical Guys Leather Detailer is awesome too. Both cheap and can be bought at Walmart. You need to keep them cleaned and conditioned with a dedicated leather product. That's why you always see these newish cars with completely destroyed leather, because the owners didn't maintain it.

I use Leather Masters Leather Protection Cream. No need to condition your seats. They are coated in a plastic / vinyl of sorts.

You can get the Chemical Guys leather cleaner and conditioner for $20 off Amazon. Otherwise, you want something with UV inhibitors. Like others say, your leather is coated and conditioners really just sit on top. Whatever you put on it needs to protect that coating.

Leather is porous. You need to keep it conditioned properly or it will eventually disintegrate. A dedicated leather product will also preserve the stitching.
