Does anyone have real experience softening leatherette upholstery? Everyone knows of saddle soap on leather, but what works on leatherette? Steve
Gunk type hand cleaner has a lot of Lanolin in it and believe it or nor,it works.Many paper towels to wipe it off.
I have had good luck with glycerin on our 16 car sat over 70 years I gave it at least 5 coats last year and I think that's why the seats are holding up as good as they are.they were so hard I dident want to sit on them. Your post motivated me to give them another coat. The seats will never be perfect but I think it helps. I mixed with water and brushed on heavy I got the glycerin from Amazon the stuff works good for hard leather if you have a lot of patience
You may have better results if you take it out of the bottle before applying it to your seat!
Jack knows the old detailers trick. FYI on 60's and 70's cars we would use GoJo on the dash pads to remove "sunburn" and de-gloss them if someone had used Armorall on them. His hand cleaner method really works well.
