    What's the correct cleaner to use for cinnamon leather?

    I've got cracks already forming, but is there a specific leather cleaner/conditioner someone could recommend?

    I would research furniture clinic, they are a leather restoration company and I've had that issue on my previous m3 and some of their products help, but to truly fix this issue and to have new leather you will need someone to fix it.

    i belive their heavy filler fixes that issue, at least temporary, but what might also help is hydration of the leather, so their leather revive or leatherique

    furniture clinic products are decently cheap too

        I'm consistently happy with leatherique, but once you have cracks forming... a bit late.

        My original interior, before I went to aftermarket seats, at 120,000 miles (with leatherique 1-2 times per year):

          I like the Chemical Guys sprayable leather cleaner + conditioner. I've tried the Adam's polishes one and find it leaves the leather with too much shine and is very hard to buff it off.

            I wouldnt use degreaser tbh, use a dedicated cleaner. Ive used gliptone before, seemed decent, fresh scent (smelled like clean fabric). And a good cleaner will only take you halfway there. You need a good, soft, natural fiber brush to gently agitate the surface without damaging it, a microfiber or sponge probably wont cut it.
