I have a two year old Old Intrigue with tan leather seats. I have ground in dirt, or stains from clothing, that I cannot remove with MCGuires, Armor All leather cleaner, or anything else.

I have heard that Lexsol is good; but I cannot find it at any auto stores in the area.

Has anybody had a positive experience cleaning their leather seats with a product?

Anybody know where Lexsol can be purchased? On the web?

Any suggestions at all in cleaning the seats would be appreciated.

    Why don't you try the Leather Seat Maintainance topic? Lexol is found in most auto-parts store and is comparable to Mothers. You can purchase it at Lexol.com.

    I found it at Pep Boys for $8.99.

    Lexol is good stuff. Buy both the brown and orange bottles for best results (one is the cleaner the other conditioner).

    When my leather is grimey I use Eagle One's cleaner as it seems to do a better job. But I don't use it every time as it's too aggressive IMO.

    If you have leather cleaner around the house, give it a shot. Try it first on a hidden part of the leather just in case it stains or does something wierd.

    Thanks to all for the input. I ordered Lexol on the web. I will try Eagle One if Lexol does not do the job.

    Thanks again!

    I just bought a used 1999 Jaguar XJ8L and the previous owner smoked, and seemed to perhaps have sweat a lot, as the interior stinks. I've heard of leather absorbing the smell of the inhabitant, and I think I'm experiencing it firsthand. From what I understand, the leather in Jaguar's is supposed to be pretty high quality--is there any conditioner that will bring back the leather smell into the car? Will hide cleaner or lexol do this or is there some other product available?

    There's already a Leather Seat Maintenance topic area here with lots of info re Hide Food/Hide Care. Suggest you post and read posts in that existing forum.
    Re the odor, find a cleanup/detailing shop that has an ozone machine. The musty odor from a trunk leak in my car was completely eliminated by the use of one. They really work.

    thanks again for the tip. I finally found a shop that has one today. I'll try it out and let you know how it goes.

    I've been using two products from Zaino (www.zainobros.com) for leather car: a cleaner and a conditioner. The conditioner contains mink oil and does a great job. And it also restores / adds back that leather smell. Check them out!
