    Best Conditioner for Black Leather

    I have been using Pinnacle Leather Conditioner on tan leather and have been very satisfied. Recently I got a new car with high quality black leather and black top stitching. I noticed that the Pinnacle Leather Conditioner leaves a slight white residue on the black leather. I never noticed this on the tan leather. What is the best conditioner to use on black leather that won't leave a residue yet still provide excellent conditioning?

    Connolly Hide
    Or
    Leatherique Conditioner.

    These two are top quality, the best of the best.

    You might try Four Star Leather Conditioner Gel. I've read good things about Leatherique as well.

    conditioners don't penetrate the leather coatings on most vehicles today. They sit on the top and actually attract dust. I've stopped using my mother's leather conditioner for my car seats and instead use it on my uncoated leather furniture...

    All you need to take care of leather is to wipe it down with a damp terry towel, and then put on a protectant like 303 aerospace, leather masters protection cream, or Ultima interior guard

    What you've said is correct when working with semi-Aniline, pigmented or coated leather. But not true when working with Aniline leather.

    OP didn't speficy his type of leather.

    Leatherique Pristine Clean as a cleaning step - only when needed. I protect with 303 Aerospace.

    true, but I also said my advice applied to most vehicles today.

    I definitely wouldn't want the leather in my car to be aniline but I'm sure some sadistic company out there has it as an overpriced option.
