PostPosted: Fri Aug 25, 2017 11:10 am    Post subject: Leather wipes - not good Reply with quote

Hi,
I bought the below leather interior wipes from halfords and i thought it was an easy way to clean the interior. however it has left very shiny swirl marks all over my seats and side dash, and generally it feels very oily.... (for a good week now, i thought maybe its going to dry...)



Does anyone know any good interior detailer around london that i can bring my car to for a full leather interior detail? also have some nasty marks on the drivers side (i guess from the rubbing everyime someone gets in and out of the car).

Thanks
TBE

Microfibre cloth ( may need 3/4 ) two to apply leather feed - work in well but do not apply too much - allow to dry - burnish with clean ones --- if you want it - thats the first option . For rapid swirl on plastic Autoglym Fast Glass (£Cool

However Question I get the feeling you want it correct - members will provide advice re detailing etc Thumb

LTT Leathercare products were recommended on another forum when I got a car with leather seats and I've been using them ever since Thumb

Leathercare will make it smell like the inside of a 1960s Bentley Cloud 9

If there's scuffing you need to re-dye it first. You can DIY but detailers know the score Thumb

Many thanks for all the replies

I think I will let someone professional have a go first and then do some reading/youtubing how to look after my interior Thumb

I thoroughly recommend Dr Leather Cleaner.... Use this with a Raceglaze leather brush and gently agitate, wiping after with a microfiber cloth.

yep give Judy a PM shes a forum member and LTTs technical director she will advise , I have used their products and they are very good , I know she will advise against oil based products as modern leather doesnt need it and leaves it shiny , have a look for her threads in this detailing sub section Thumb
