My 2002 Prado met 400 000 kms op se leersitplekke was baie donker met n bietjie van n "glazed look", en toe besluit ek om dit skoon te maak. Hier onder is fotos van hoe dit nou lyk asook die skoonmaakgoed wat ek gebruik het. Met die "kitchen cleaner" is dit net baie belangrik om baie goed met n nat lap (warm water) baie goed af te vee (n paar keer) nadat die cleaner aangespuit en met n naelborseltjie geskrop is. Daarna goed ingesmeer met die Wynns Creme. Ek het dit maar op eie risiko gedoen, en dis nie noodwendig die beste vir die leer nie, maar dit het awesome uitgekom! Die sitplekke lyk soos splinternuwes!! En die leer is sag en soepel soos n vars kalfie se boudjies!!
Groete uit Danabaai!

They look good, Daan! PraDog has grey seats so they don't show dirt & grime but I will take a closer look later and see if they need cleaning as well.

I initially thought the seats were a much darker colour leather than the leather inlays on the door panels as these were a nice light tan/beige colour BUT, now it all looks the same after the cleaning process ! And the leather is nice and soft after the treatment I gave it! (also used a tub of special "cream" our local leather repair guy gave me for my old leather jacket - unfortunately the contents of this mix is his secret!) Really looks almost as good as new save for a few "plooie" which is part of the ageing process (as for humans as well !!)

Looks about the same as some new expensive seats on certain German vehicles I would not like to own!
