    My A4-B5 has Tan leather interior.
    Cleaning of the leather has to be done with care.
    The drivers seat like most cars gets the most use, what cleaner do the experts use?
    I am now using Autoglym leather cleaner (was voted best cleaner)
    before I used Maquires and Liquid leather (i don`t recommend for modern cars)


    Thanks

    Zymol Leather Cleaner and Zymol Treat Leather Conditioner are a great pair of products that work well and feed the leather properly. Good alternatives are the leather products by Gliptone, and Poorboy's Leather Stuff is also a good bet for those on a budget. What I like most about the Zymol products and in particular the Treat, is that they leave the leather feeling plump and fresh, just like new; when you work the products in, it really feels like they are nourishing the leather rather than sitting on the surface. :)

    I use the zymol cleaner and treat on my s3 but to be honest, I found it did not really want to be worked into the leather too much.
    Any tips for getting it to be absorbed more, or is it a case of leave it on longer??

    I hear the gliptone products are the daddy, remember when working with leather to get it warm, a hair dryer can be used (with care) or turn the heated seats on.

    It is a natural skin afterall, so can be cleaned and treated more effectively when warm.

    As Neil said, probably not warm enough; you need to warm the leather to the point where the pores fully open, then it becomes highly absorbant. We often leave a car idling for 10 mins with the heaters on full to get enough heat into the interior to feed the leather properly. :)
