I personally use the Gliptone Liquid Leather cleaner and conditioner and it works a treat! Saying that it works great on old leather items more noticeably - I have a nice old leather chair I originally used it for and it made it look and smell brand new, bringing the leather back to life. There are some that will say that because the leather itself on the seats is coated/protected, there is no need for the conditioner, as it can't penetrate and nourish the leather - i.e. when looking after leather seats, you're more looking after the protective outer that has sealed the leather.

Then again, the conditioner to my eyes just gives it that shine and finishes off the cleaning job nicely


Works on the steering wheel too!

What I use:

Clean: Lord Sheraton Leather Wipers (cleans and conditions, pretty quicky and easy to use, get em from Sainsburys, ASDA, et al)
Proper conditioning: AG Leather Cream Care (usually after the leath wipes, not very often).

I'd just normally just use a clean damp cloth to get the dust and muck off (I've got two kids) and then use AG leather cream care every couple of months as a treat
The seats still look like new
