This is a hilarious topic ... but the squeek bugs me too, I must 
admit. I got rid of mine, albeit only temporarily, as a consequence 
of keeping an oversize terrycloth towel over the passenger seat 
(both right seats, actually) on a daily basis (i.e. when commuting, 
when no one is in the passenger seat, and when parked at work). I use 
the towels to keep the sun off the leather to preserve it (along with 
a front window reflective screen from the dealer and rear window shade 
from a V8). The towel tucks between the passenber seat bolster and the 
driver seat arm rest.  ' terrycloth; no squeek when in place. ' always 
park at work facing SE so the sun never enters where it'll hit bare 
leather (or the dashboard or rear deck). 

' towels are oversized bath towels; JC Penney special order.  ' match 
the platinum leather almost perfectly. 

At this rate, my interior will last indefinitely (and I'll still be 
on this list in 2010 for mechanical issues!) 

Let us know what works.  The baby powder sounds interesting?
