Leather seat care ?

I have tried every search trick I can think of but can't find any info on this subject on this forum. The word seat brings up nothing?
If you have any info best product , treatment , best way to care for the seats on our 1998 land yacht or what I am doing wrong because I can't believe I am the first to ask for help with this issue,,it would be a great help.
Thanks

I never heard of Lexol, but was going to say.....a good quality leather cleaner and conditioner.

We clean/treat ours 3-4 times a year and they do very well.

If you search under ultraleather, might find something that way.

Our seats, dashboard etc. were all badly in need of some TLC. We bought some leather cleaner/conditioner and it made them all not only look but feel wonderful. Unfortunately the bottle is in the LandYacht which is in the garage for brake work so I can't look up the exact brand, but as Maggie says a good quality cleaner/conditioner should do the trick. Every little bit of sprucing up helps!

Leather

I like the Zaino line of products. I use to get them from a Auto-detailer store down in Charlotte NC.
Here is the Zaino store I found online. Zaino Store : Z-10 Leather in a Bottle

The leather stuff I have used since 2006 on our IS350, and since we use it on our couch in our home, and chair. Its good. Zaino has a cleaner too, it works well.
It doesn't leave it greasy if you are worried about that, and it smells great.

Zaino Z6 clean gloss enhancer spray I use on the inside of the car on the wood trim, and on the outside of the car. It smells great too. I use it with a microfiber cloth on any appliance you don't want to scratch that has a plastic display. Puts a mirror shine on it. I use it in the AS on the inside and out. Gets rid of finger prints.
I like it a lot !
have a good one!

There are definitely posts and probably threads here about caring for the ultra-leather, but the search function is a bit tricky, IMO.

Regardless, most of the time if you ask a question that has been previously covered, you will still get answers, so don't worry about that.

Also, some of the higher-functioning computer geniuses here will often find more info for you and copy/paste links to other threads/posts.

Ultraleather is a synthetic material & can be cleaned with water. I use a damp cloth with a little Simple Green cleaner….no slippery/oily feeling on the seats & it smells good.

Thank you for responding to my question on search procedure in the forum. It would be a great help if you or someone would show me how to word a question that the system would respond to.
I hope the question on how to take care for the seats in my LY doesn't require the word ( ultra ) because it would never occur to me to use such a word in a question of care of the seats.
Thanks

I've noticed that experienced posters mention using the Google search area rather than the forum's search line. At the top of the page click on "search" then select Google search. You'll see lots of links back to the forum.
I've been frustrated when trying to search for information, too.

If what you're trying to clean is synthetic leather, I would NOT recommend Lexol or any other leather treatment. Synthetic leather like Ultraleather will not absorb leather treatment. It will stay on the surface and look and feel slippery and slimy.

Ultraleather is a polyurethane product. Here is a page from the manufacturer's website regarding cleaning and maintenance.
