    Hey Everybody. What is your favorite to use on the interior dash, panels and leather seats? I'm looking for something that will clean, protect, and nourish the leather. Has anyone tried Adams? What else would be good for a nice clean satin finish?

    As a professional auto detailer, I don’t particularly like all in one products. They tend to not last very long and they tend to be very oily and leave behind weird residues. I really like chemical guys no nonsense cleaner. Their leather cleaner is also pretty fantastic. And then I use their natural conditioner and it’s fantastic. It gives very good protection without being filmy or oily. And it smells like fresh leather which is the best part.

    :word: Use products specifically designed for each material and each step in the process. We use Chemical Guys leather cleaner, and then Leather Conditioner at our detailing shop. Although, if the leather does not have heavy dirt and grime, just the leather conditioner will wipe away minor filth and refresh the surface at the same time.

    So we’re all using Adams or Chem Guys leather cleaner/conditioner? Any pros or cons of either?
    My fronts have been covered since new so leather really just needs some conditioner and the kids pretty much trashed the 2nd row.
    Any suggestions? On cleaning/conditioning/in general???

    I can’t speak to the Adams products as I’ve never used those. But I love the chemical guys products because they don’t leave behind any greasy or oily residue. The leather cleaner works fantastic, even on very dirty seats, and the conditioner is “new leather” scented and just smells wonderful. Haha. But it’s easy to use, has great durability, and is fairly inexpensive. You might also check amazon as they carry a big variety of chemical guys products now.
    Edit: also if you want good how to videos on caring for your leather check out chemical guys on YouTube. They’ve got a whole channel dedicated to how tos and they are on point!

    Dash and glass cleaner from Turtle Wax works well for me.

    Also, just to add a thought, leather is a pretty delicate material. So when scrubbing it clean, I use a horsehair brush with microfiber towels or something similar. A coarse brisel brush can damage the leather.
