Leather Lotion & Restoring Leather Seats

In college I worked for a leather store (Gepetto’s) near campus. When somone came in with a ‘quality’ leather garment to have cleaned, the owner would take over.

Mark would take it for two or three weeks. First, he would clean it with alcohol, and rub it down till the rag came away clean. Then to ‘recondition’ he used Lexol, a very light coating with a sheepskin scrap. Several times, the lighter the coating, the better.

  1. I have 2001 Volvo XC70 with Transmission that failed, after we replaced engine (used) along with (NEW) Alternator, Radiator, etc last month. Car in very good shape inside and outside and I am looking to part out. Let me know what you need and I will supply pictures and info on part.

  2. recommended leather treatment. i have a 2002 s40 with tan leather seats all in fair to great condition. is there any way i can make the leather more supple or softer so it does not seem to want to tear at the seams? the seat that my daughter is relegated to for reasons that she cannot seem to keep her feet off my leather seats, is the only seat that is exhibiting this wear. i just clean it off and add hand lotion and let it sit and wipe off excess with slightly damp microfiber.
