GDay.

i was down at repco just before and i saw they had this stuff called "Maguires Gold Class Leather cleaner and conditioner" or something like that.

i just woundering if people have used this and what they think of it?

at the moment i dont really use anything on them but i wanna start so they stay in good condition.

can anyone suggest another product?

oh also i've been told that some eucalyptus oil watered down with warm water does a good job to clean/protect them as well. what think?

any help would be great.

cheers.

yep maguires gold class is good but takes a bit to time and effert to apply, i just usualy rub it in with my hands and then whipe with a cloth, but maguires also comes in a foam which is much easier to apply and Armorall has a spray on product but the Maguires cream is the best and longest lasting.

I use the Meguiar Gold Class Rich Leather Wipes. That's easy to apply and does all the conditioning and UV protection that you need to keep your leather soft and supple. It costs about $20 from Repco.

maguires seem to have good products . . . . give it a try and see for yourself how good it is. Wont be much of a risk, they have a good name!

Yep its good stuff. I apply it during the summer season more than during the rest of the year and my leather is in very good condition. It's worth it's weight in gold.
