The product hasn't changed, only the labelling system.

Armourall or any of that type of 'protectant' should definitely NOT be wiped on any interior surfuface of a vehicle.
It becomes sticky, attracts dust, and gasses out in hot weather to condense onto the interior surfaces of windows, where it fogs them. You then have to wipe the stuff off the windows.
I have seen it sprayed around engine bays, but that area will then become dirty quite quickly.

There are much better and more specific treatments for leather upholstery.

Good advice David what is the best product(s) to use to clean and protect the leather seats?

Sorry if I have asked this question before just come home from a long day in Sydney.

My Surgery has been re-scheduled again for the third time!

Surgery will now take place in mid June which is good news fingers crossed the surgery does not get cancelled or re-scheduled again.

Cheers.

I just bought some of this stuff and I'm told it has none of the problems experienced with Amorall since it contains no silicon. I was thinking of using it on my steering wheels since it appears to be some type of vinyl over high density foam....

Or would Auto Glym "Vinyl and Rubber Care" be better? No idea if it contains silicon but their leather products are very good.

I also bought some Sunbrella 303 "Fabic/Vinyl Cleaner".

So can anyone give an answer to this one? I was thinking of using it on the instrument cluster plastic surround since it's slightly faded and dry

Leather could still need some regular conditioning when required.
All surfaces can get dirty. That includes leather.
For cleaning, use saddle soap.

There ARE specialist protectants for leather, but their aim is to keep it supple, flexible and to a certain extent, elastic. The elasticity is especially needed in the vertical seat bolsters either side of the driver' back. It is in this area that leather in particular can show ugly signs of failure, which require expensive repair.

The best place to look for a good quality leather conditioner is in an upholstery shop, or a business that sells domestic lounge suites.

The best way to prevent gassing out of products such as leather conditioners, is to cover the seats with seat covers. If you wish to present your vehicle for concours judging, then temporarily remove the seat covers.

My car has partchment (bone coloured) leather upholstery. When I first acquired it 14 years ago, I spent quite some time cleaning the leather with saddle soap, let that dry very well to prevent fungal degradation, then treated it with a specialist leather conditioner, then covered the seats with cream coloured sheep skin seat covers. My car is not of concours standard, and so the sheepskin covers remain in place.

I treat the leather in my car perhaps at intervals of four years; it is only driven on average about 2,000 kilometers per year, and is always garaged 100% of the time between outings. This treatment should be repeated perhaps once a year, if your car is driven much more regularly, and often spends extensive lengths of time un garaged.
