Thanks to all whom responded on my seat cleaning project... (Especially
Brett as he spent more time typing than anyone else, well, more words!)

Went with the lexol products....

None of the Flaps had it, tried some other places... Finally checked their
website and discovered that Ace hardware is a distributor. Of course I
muddled around in the cleaning section for a while until store help directed
me to the shoe department! Go figure.

After vacuuming, etc, etc, I ended up using a small sponge and lathering
real good, then wiping/scrubbing with a terry cloth towel which I kept

Upon my second trip to fill the bucket I noticed the "magic eraser" that my
fiancée swears by. Ended up using it on some of the stains. Works great, but
too much pressure starts removing the leather dye. Figured a slightly
lighter area was better than a stain?

Once again, thanks to all who responded...


PS: Seats aren't pristine, but they actually look somewhat like Ecru!
