    I use leather cleaner plus from cg, and a swissvax leather brush to clean. To condition, well sir there's a lot to choose from

    If you are budget minded, Lexol. If you have a bit of cash, Leatherique, Raceglaze and Gloss-it are very good.

    Deep cleaning can dont by many leather cleaners out there or some mild apc like Opt Power Clean. Good monthly cleaner/conditioner that is great is 1z Leather Care. You have finished leather in your car, clear coated/pigmented leather, so main thing is to keep them clean and good protectant like Leather Care and you will enjoy many years. Like Ken said RG, Gloss-It, leather masters are also great clears and conditioners.

    How do you like RG compared to LM?

    They are slightly different. RG is something in between 1Z and LM...and I like all three of them! And just like LM, RG conditioner can just be left on without a final wipe off...

    I just bought a escape with DIRTY vinyl seats, reading over this I have a few ideas where to start. Any other suggestions?

    If you want to do this one time and get it right, hard to beat Einszett Deep Plastic Cleaner. I use it all the time in my business and its never failed me. It leaves a nice matte finish, non greasy, uv protection on the plastic. No major smell, just clean and looking good.

    There are a zillion products out there, I like to narrow it down to as few as possible.

    Good luck with your research !

    For Leather, I still like to use Zaino Leather Cleaner wiped on and steamed through a white towel. Its amazing what comes out on the towel. I like to use white towels, because they tell me when I have all the gunk gone..
    Sometimes steam alone is good too, but if the seats are dirty, the added punch from the PH balanced Zaino leather cleaner really does it nicely and prepares the leather for something nice like Einszett Leather Care or Leather Masters products or even the Zaino Leather Conditioner product. I also like Spinneybeck for conditioning and its very similar to Leather Masters. Given that Spinneybeck has been around a long time providing hides for all the car manufacturers, I would have to venture a guess that perhaps some products are knock-offs of theirs, etc...

    Good luck with this !

    I figured since no one mentioned it, I've had excellent results with Adam's Leather & Interior Cleaner and Adam's Leather Conditioner.

    Went from this,

    To this.
