RE: xymol, lexol, detail questions

Hi All,
	In my car, the previous owner NEVER conditioned the seats, and
they were stiff and dirty.  I couldn't find Lexol or hide food, so I
bought Eagle One cleaner and conditioner.  I cleaned and conditioned on
a hot day (as instructed by another Q-Lister).  I was very pleased with
the results.  Seats were clean, leather was nice and soft.  I think it
is probably more important that you take care of them than product
