Mothers cleaner and conditioner - works well to get out marks etc and puts a nice shine and feel back into the leather - but be a bit generous with the condtioner.

i brought a can of dubbon, after you clean it use that and rub it in well, that will help soften the leather.

Made by KIWI yellow flat can, also buy a rag used to use it cost you about 99c its also a yellow cloth.

if you have shrinkage along the back seat on the top of each bolster and the centre part on the back i dont think you can restore that back to soft if its rock hard.

70% water 30% window cleaner (windex) or supershelid stuff i got at work

clean it up grab the missues hair dryer ONCE LEATHER IS DRY heat up the leather it will become nice and tight again and wont look so old and saggie keep the hair dryer about 4in away from the leather and work in a clockwise direction becareful not to burn it

some cleaners people use may lift the paint from the leather always use water aswell after it dont get the cleaner get into the paint

and if you can find a water based teflon soultion use that after cleaning and tighting it helps older leather to be protected from dirt body oils grim etc new leather does not need teflon protection

Honestly just use leatherique, its what all the benz and jag owners use and it comes up mint. I applied it to my merc left it in the heat over a few days while reapplying and it came up a treat. Expensive though.
