I have looked at a forum that deals with the Malco car care products, including the Leather Conditioner. Most reviews and comments are somewhat better than just 'favourable", and it would appear that many detailing shops are only too happy to use the Malco product. Regards. Styria

This is the price on eBay from Victoria for a 1.9 litre bottle. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MALCO-FLA...item4ad3697273

Geoff, just take note that the ebay item is Flash Wax. I did buy one bottle of this Wax about a week and a half ago, together with the 0.95 litre bottle of Leather Conditioner. For the devil of me, I cannot recall how much I paid for the two items .i.e. the Wax and the Leather dressing, but I kept on thinking at the time of purchase "that the stuff wasn't real cheap". I'll need to find the receipt to see how much I paid, but it was close enough to a hundred dollars (a bit either way), and the additional bottle of the leather solution I bought this week just gone worked out to about $42.00.

Okay, found the invoice - Flash Wax $53.35, Conditioner $42.35. Those prices included GST. So the stuff appears to be holding its value even on ebay. Regards Styria

Yes but $53.00 for a 1.89litre bottle of Flash wax is not a bad price.

Geoff, I believe that to be the retail price. I don't think I received any favourable treatment. Straight retail, I suspect. Regards. Styria

Just as a matter of curiosity, I checked the price of Mothers leather conditioner or treatment. Not exactly 100 pr cent correct, but roughly about thirty dollars for 0.33 litres of their stuff at Supercheap. Compare with the Malco price of $45.00 (?) for 0.9 of a litre. God only knows what margin Supercheap are working on - with their buying power. Regards. Styria

And Leatherique is $90 per litre but it's pure oil with no added fillers or water. It takes me about $10 worth to treat the interior of the SSII - that is about 12 hides, full seats/dash rolls/ door and pillar trims and roof lining, so in the end it is not expensive.

Looking at it from that perspective, even the Mothers product is cheap. However, then add the Glass Cleaner, the Bug Remover, the Clean Wipes, carpet shampoo, the cutting compound, the swirl remover, the lustrous shine enhancer, the paint sealant and probably some others Whose uses presently fail my memory, and if you buy the "the glossy fashionable brands", you can soon spend a very tidy sum of money.

The intention of any company is to extract as much money as possible from your pocket - however, you don't need all those things. A few basics is quite sufficient.
