Hilariously good results - like new.

Grated some pears in some 10ml of warm water and stirred until it diluted.
Used soft toothbrush and had amazing results.

Can anyone advise on how long should I leave the gluptone conditioner before using the car again?

24 hours, or even just overnight should be fine

+1 for Pears soap

I've also used AutoGlym interior shampoo for the steering wheel and it came up like new.

Just stumbled across this thread and I am genuinely shocked to hear so many positive reviews on a bar of soap! That picture of the M3 seat is amazing

Are you guys wetting the seats first and they massaging the soap in, or just rub the bar over the dry seat and then adding water before using the nail brush to agitate?

Iíve got a car coming in that will need a full interior details and whilst I have a couple of branded leather cleaners, sheer curiosity will see me at my local Superdrug in the morning

Wet the seats first (even just wipe with a damp cloth), massage the soap in, then use a nail brush to agitate.
Wipe clean with clean damp sponge/microfibre. Repeat if necessary.

Let us know how you get on!!

Tried it on my imola trim yesterday, cleaned them up but wasn’t blown away by the results. Did bring some of the dye out both on the brush and microfibre cloth.

I was quite impressed by this technique. Tried it twice (2 consecutive days) and it feels like I have a new interior.
My leathers used to be shiny with some black dirty spots which were totally removed.
I followed the quoted procedure + meguiar's gold leather care (or sth like that) at the end.

Thanks a lot mate
