I've heard that these can be lessened by using a damp (microwave heated) towel, which will cause the urethane top coating to contract slightly.This isn't an endorsement or recommendation, just sharing info I have read.

A smaller a$$ always helps. I've lost 12 pounds in the last few weeks and continue to slim down. I'm putting my own advice into action. :)

I had purchased this same thing a few days ago but then did some reading...
Apparently leather in modern cars has a urethane coating on top which seals the leather. Wiping the seats down with water (or a mild water-based cleaner) gets some moisture in through the seams which helps keep the leather moist, but real leather conditioners don't help much.
I returned the wipes...

You mean these wipe, we're talk about?..They have nothing to harm the leather, can only help, especially with the UV protection...I like the nice shine it leaves on everything, doors, dash, etc.:laugh:


But do avoid any of the Armor-all crap..;)

Yup. They have nice leather conditioners, but with the urethane coating those conditioners don't get into the leather. So they stay on top to rub off on clothing or whatever. Moisture *is* good for the leather, but gets in through seams or by whatever mechanism can increase the moisture in the leather which is underneath the impermeable coating.
At least that is the claim...

The manual is not much help, but here it is for those who never look at it:

LEATHER UPHOLSTERY

To prevent ingrained dirt and staining, inspect the seat upholstery regularly and clean every 1 to 2 months, as follows:

Wipe off fine dust from the seat surfaces using a clean, damp, non-colored cloth. Change frequently to a clean area of cloth, to avoid abrasive action on the leather surface. Avoid over-wetting.

If this is not sufficient, use a cloth which has been dampened with warm, soapy water and then wrung out. Use only mild non-caustic soap.

Use vehicle manufacturer approved leather cleaner for heavily soiled areas. Dry off and rub with a clean, soft cloth, changing surfaces regularly.

Use vehicle manufacturer approved Leather Cleaner several times a year to maintain its appearance and suppleness. The cleaner will nourish and moisturize and help to improve the surface protective film against dust and substances.

Do not use solvents. Do not use detergents, furniture polish or household cleaners. While these products may initially give impressive results, usage leads to rapid deterioration of the leather and will invalidate the warranty. Vehicle manufacturer recommend a basic set of products that have been specially selected for the type of leather in the vehicle.

Dark clothing may stain leather seats, just like other upholstery products.

Sharp objects, such as belts, zip fasteners, rivets, etc., can leave permanent scratches and scratch marks on the leather surface.

Unless spillages, such as tea, coffee or ink, are washed away immediately, permanent staining may have to be accepted.

If a valet service is used, make sure that the specialist concerned is aware of, and follows, these instructions precisely.
