These are established products for leather care. Only my Civic is currently doing service in Gurugram with our son. His City is pretty messy and I may let the HASS have a got at it after a bit of paint repairs. Then if not happy I will give it a full treatment. In any case my leather upholstery in the dining chairs is pretty messy, so I may have a got at that.

1)Lexol leather care kit(16.9 oz)
Price: $24.99

2)COLOURLOCK Leather & Textile Cleaning Brush
Price: $8.5

3)Viking Cotton Terry Wax Applicator Pads - 6 Pack
Price: $4.6

Hope this helps!

Availability of Lexol products in India is an issue. I did come across the Lexol leather conditioner on eBay India, couldn't find the leather cleaner. Meguiars all purpose cleaner (APC) is equally good. It is a stronger cleaner compared to Lexol leather cleaner. Trying to source the Meguiars APC in India. Any leads would be helpful.
Hello csr,

Seats are looking great after cleaning.

Can you suggest any alternatives available in India please?

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply. You could try out the Meguiars gold class cleaner. However, I can't vouch for it as I haven't used it.
