    Mid to Higher End cleaner for Cleaning Leather Race Suit

    I have a two-piece AlpineStars race suit, black leather. Absolutely trashed at this point in time, dead bugs and grime all over the place. I want a mid to high end product to clean the leather. Something that will do a great job, and not leave a horrible smell. Any suggestions? Please not CG leather cleaner, I've used it and its terrible....

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I've never used CG Leather Cleaner. What was wrong with it? Is it a clear spray liquid, or is it a lotion?

    It has a horrible odor that will give you a terrible headache. And I don't feel like it cleans very well, I usually spray it into a detailing brush and lather/foam it up and wipe it away, just spraying it onto a MF won't do anything. Either way it has an odor that doesn't smell good.

    I think this would work well for you.

    It cleans well and doesn't smell like fake leather or anything..

    Interesting, I was actually looking at getting this:

    GYEON Q2M Leather Cleaner

    GYEON Q2 Leather Coat - 120 ml

    I'm sure they're safe to use, I definitely need to condition the leather but it has to be something that won't cause me to slide all over the seat. Last time I tried to use CG leather conditioner I was sliding all over the seat and it became really difficult to remain stable under heavy braking/throttle.

    Anyone know if the Gyeon leather conditioner is slippery?

    I might go ahead and get these since I also have a leather interior in a car I need to clean and protect.

    Give us an update on how they work for you once you get to use them.

    Sorry, just realized I never answered your question, it is a clear spray liquid. The leather conditioner is a lotion which is applied then buffed out. The problem with applying the conditioner to the seat area of a race suit is that it is one of the main points of contact to the bike and it will create a hazard in that you have less control than usual.

    Re: Mid to Higher End cleaner for Cleaning Leather Race Suit

    Sorry Mike not sold @ Autogeek Absolutely the Best & the 1st Leather & plastic cleaner I have ever used.36 years & counting Tough yet gentle Cut 50% it will clean almost anything .Cleans so well with water rinse that water will bead off plastics ,Brown stuff on tires instantly runs off Works well on brake dust on wheels .

    I did a Honda Odyssey , they had curtain climbers (kids) took the seats out they were dark grey I sprayed a 50% solution on them any I started to freak out because I thought from the color change I ruined them ,urns out they were a very light grey the dirty rivers of dirt just washed away across the parking lot.

    Straight up it really kicks ass . Spray on liberally on dry evenly then massage with very soft brush Rinse , Amazing product.

    There has to be a lot of sweat salts and body oils in that leather being a suit. I would use the Leatherique products. Use the Rejuvenating Oil to displace all those contaminates in the leather to bring them to the surface. Then use Pristine Clean to remove those contaminates from the surface
