    Leather Conditioner for Seats with tiny holes

    Sorry about the stupid title of thread. I'm drawing a complete blank on how to describe it. See pic please.

    What's the best conditioner product to use. Besides the best quality product. But I'm concerned about clogging the holes. I have used several "samplers" from Wolfgang. It seems to not be a problem. But it bothers me a bit. Is there a good spray product? Or are the creams OK as long as common sense is used?

    Thanks in advance.

    Water, used frequently, is enough to rehydrate the leather and keep it supple. Conditioners are unnecessary on modern coated leather.

    I used Sonax Leather spray and it works wonders and doesn't get into the leather holes at all. It's mostly a cleaner as the post above me is correct that modern leather doesn't need much conditioning.

    x 2. If anything, coat the leather.

    Water huh. Maybe I'll just go with a coating instead of conditioner. The link above doesn't refer to just using water though. Marketing I guess . Just gotta go with what one feels comfortable with I guess. My vehicle is a 2015.

    Thanks guys.
