    Gliptone do a cleaner and conditioner, its amazing stuff, makes your leather look and smell brand new, not too expensive either..

    +2 on gliptone but as a quick maintenance which is alot easier to use i would suggest zymol leather cleaner. It comes in a small spray bottle and leaves your leather a nice matt finish from new.

    I use this often as every other cleaner i have tried has a conditioner in it which tends to make the leather shiny.

    Glipton Twins, it's safe and removes dirt even on seats that are 14+ years old

    yes. use the gliptone liquid leather cleaner GT12, then the conditioner GT11, for scratches they do a scuffmaster re colouring kit (65ml will be fine and goes a long way) which I have used and was well impressed with. they can also match any colour you wish with a sample.
