- Clean leather seats with a water-based, non-alkaline leather cleaner. Pinnacle Leather & Vinyl Cleaner is pH-balanced to gently remove dirt and body oils without drying out the leather. This VOC compliant cleaner lifts dirt and stains out of the leather’s pores, which opens them up for the leather conditioner. Pinnacle Leather & Vinyl Cleaner contains no gloss agents or silicone oils. If you have a BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Lexus that has semi-aniline leather, use Black Label Hide-Soft Leather Cleaner. This gentle, effective cleaner removes dirt and grime while replenishing lost oils, like lanolin and mink oil.
Apply either cleaner to a small section and rub with a Cobra Microfiber Applicator. Stains may require agitation with a Leather and Vinyl Scrub Brush. Light agitation – not scrubbing – will help release stains and break up residues. Pat the section dry with a soft, dry Cobra Microfiber Towel and continue in this manner until you’ve cleaned all seats.
Detailer’s Tip: Pay special attention to armrests, side bolsters, and the edge of the seat where your skin touches the leather. Dark spots indicate body oils, which can be removed with Pinnacle Leather & Vinyl Cleaner.
- Condition leather seats with Pinnacle Leather Conditioner, which contains no harmful silicones. Silicones and other artificial oils actually cause the leather to dry out prematurely. Silicones will sit on top of the leather and attract dust with a greasy, sticky finish. For the best results, use Pinnacle Leather Conditioner. It contains lanolin as its primary conditioning agent. Leather is nourished naturally, and therefore looks and feels like new. As an added bonus, it has UV inhibitors to prevent fading and cracking. If you have a BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Lexus that has semi-aniline leather, use Black Label Hide-Soft Leather Conditioner. This thick cream provides the ultimate protection by feeding leather mink oil and lanolin. You can even use this conditioner on unfinished leather, like what you would find in a King Ranch Ford.
Apply Pinnacle Leather Conditioner with a clean microfiber applicator. Allow it to penetrate for a few minutes. Then buff the seats with a clean microfiber towel.
