Default Maintainance on LEATHER??

Had the leather install in my rex for couple weeks now, and my buddy keep telling me to put some kind of protectant/lotion on it to seal the finish... Personally I do not like the sticky feeling on the seat afterward and it look glossy. On the other hand, will the leather wear out alot faster without the lotion? Or do I have to have them on the leather? Can any leather expert give me some answer? Any input/advice will be appreicate, THANKS.

I definitely wouldn't call myself a "leather expert", but having spent some time detailing cars, I may be able to help.

If you want the leather to last, then you will have to protect it, one way or another. A product like Zymol Leather Protectant or Lexol will keep the leather from drying and cracking. The key is to NOT overdo it. A light coating every 3 months or so should do the trick. Cleant the leather with a leather cleaner, then wipe on the protectant with a damp cloth, let it sit for a few minutes, and wipe off with a dry cloth...if it's still damp or sticky, wipe it some more. Pretty simple, really.

I just did the Lexol twins on my interior... definately the way to go. Also, the Eagle One stuff is also good.

I use Lexol with Neet's foot oil. It seems to work the best to me. No, I don't know what a neet is, though.
