Default Leather seat/dash care?
I've never owned a truck with leather before, with that being said what are some good products to use? Any tips or tricks to know? I cleaned my 2013 1500 big horn every weekend and it payed off. Would like to keep inside of new truck with the Laramie package just as nice. I don't want to buy a product that will do more harm than good. How often should the leather be treated? Thanx

I like Meguiars products. Can be purchased at part stores and Walmart. Also check Autopia and Autogeek. Each has a forum in Tapatalk. If you do a lot of exiting and entering your truck, I recommend treating the leather once a week. Buy some 380gsm microfiber towels made in Korea. Rag company for microfiber anything. Also a quality boar hair brush.

My go-to for leather interiors. You can spend a lot more but I find Lexol does a great job for the money.

Lexol Leather Care Kit, leather cleaner, leather conditioner

Probably the only products I use from Chemical Guys is their leather cleaner and condition, pretty good stuff. I use it ever couple months. And in between that I use Meguiars Ultimate Interior Detailer.

Not being from out west I see but a great item is saddle type cleaners conditioners. Talk to one of your nearest cowboy/cowgirl friends seriously lol

Anyone ever had issues with the white film forming on leather seats. The refer to it as spew. It is fatty acids left behind during tanning process. Mine has some spots and was wondering if anyone had any luck with any brand of spew remover.

Lexol is really good stuff but the "boss" hates the smell so on her car I use Meg's leather conditioner. Both good products.
