I just use water for now to clean it and give it something of moisture. But many say that Lexol cleaner and the Lexol conditioner are really good. About 12 bucks each (24 bucks for both bottles).

I also remember reading that some people on the TL forum had trouble with the Armorall wipes. They said it made the leather a lighter color.

illusion's way sounds like the best one to keep the leather supple and soft .

When i bought my car, they were (of course) trying to get me to pay $300 for the leather treatment. I declined their offer Does anyone know what the dealer does and whether it's different from using lexol, etc?

Nope, no different. They just do the work for you and overcharge you for it . You were smart to decline .

Thanks, that's good to hear! Their pitch was "with this Honda service, you have a Honda guarantee.... with doing it yourself, all you have left is a empty bottle and no guarantee".

Lexol

Used it in my Q.... loved it. The best. I didn't mind the smell at all... just smelled leathery to me.

i use meguairs two-step aloe conditioner, but i want to switch to lexol

i don't recommend armor all, i went through that already, but it creates a really good shine - except that my passengers always complained it was too greasy and they were skeptical about sitting down.
