armour all is a bad product imo.... they use silicone to get the shine.
rubber, plastics etc become addicted so to speak, like motors do to StartYaBastard type products.
Meguiars have an excellent range which you can find at any Repco outlet.

eucalyptus oil, hot/warm water and a bit of elbow grease has worked well for me with dirty old seats

I've been using BEESWAX for 6 years on my leather seats and i wouldn't use anything else now.
My seats still look and feel new.
It contains beeswax, jojoba oil and vegetable oils, so it's all natural.
I sometime use MOTHERS LEATHER CLEANER first before applying the wax.
You can pick it up from most good sunday markets for about $20 a tub. It last me about 12-18 months using it about 5 times a year. Or phone 07 5592 2182.

Hey mate! to clean them id recommend using a sponge like these http://www.magicsponge.com.au/ with some earth choice spray (which can be bought from safeway ect) but make sure when using the sponges u don't push to hard as they are slightly abrasive. then for treating them any leather treatment should be fine! ive used the Autoglym one and works a treat! gives a nice new look but not to shiny!
