    Viable Leatherique alternative?

    Is the general consensous still that Leatherique (LQ) is the best leather cleaning product? I ask becasue the white leather in my MB is pretty drab looking from daily use. I want to bring the white back to life but I REALLY dont want to go through the LQ process. Are there any other products that people swear by that will produce a similar result and are more user friendly?

    TIA!

    Hard to say which is better than the other product. But if you are willing to try out some other products. Ultima Interior Schampo Gel is a very good cleaner on most interior surfaces including leather. And combo that with Ultima Interior Guard Plus as a great protection and nice feel on the leather afterwards. Gyeon has just released their mild and strong leather cleaner and has it in a kit with Leather Coat. You have a stronger protection with Gyeon Leather Shield and maintance with Leather Coat if wanted. This is longlasting products. And pretty straight forward to use. Get a good soft gentle leather brush to aggitate the cleaner with. And some like a good detailing cotton towel to clean with.

    Ultima Interior Shampoo Gel is currently my favorite too.

    Of course they did, because I just ordered the original leather cleaner last month ....

    I’ll suggest water-based products from
    either Leather Master or Sonus.

    There is nothing wrong with the original. It does a good job of cleaning.

    Yeah you have a great cleaner with the original one too. Maybe the mild one is more suited when doing well maintained leather and the stronger or original when you have a lot of grime build up. But don't think it's much difference between them.
