Leather treatment

Treating my leather interior and steer wheel with Leatherique, applied it yesterday and car is in the sun all day (as per the instructions) for it to do it's treatment to bring that matt finish back when wiped later.

I was recommended it by a b/post friend and after wiping off after a day in the sun with the windows shut (important) for it to work it's not completely matt but the black nappa leather feels so soft and pliable. I'll take a pic when I can.

If it's not matte then it probably wasn't hot enough outside.

I've been using Lexol for years and it's my favorite for the price.

Heard great things about Colourlock products for a matte look, without the wait of Leatherique.

^Leatherique described as the best for leather by the Rolls Royce Owners club USA since 1968 so that's why I use it, never heard of Lexol.

I know about it, but it has to be very hot outside for it to properly work and get a matte finish.

Lexol's one of the most recommended products here in the US.

You can't really see the difference in pics as to the naked eye but you'll be glad to go through the process with Leatherique massaging the oil in with your hands into the leather and leaving it in the sun for a day or two then wiping off. You have to wait a bit for it to work but it's worth it and on the steer wheel you can hold it without your hands sliding off like on other treatments.
