Default Leather Cleaning and Care

So what do you guys use to clean and care for your leather interiors? I picked up some Meguiar's Gold Class Rich Leather Wipes, has anyone ever tried these?

I've been using ArmorAll Leather Wipes, which seem to do okay.

Quick question on leather care . . .

My driver side seat has some cracking on the outside edge of the seat (lower trim, not the seat itself). I don't think the previous owner kept the leather conditioned. Is there any way to keep this cracking from continuing? Is that part of the seat even leather?

My parents are members in a corvette club that swears by Pledge dusting spray to condition thier leather. They say it helps keep it soft and also protect at the same time. This seems to work on my leather in my Disco II but I keep it off the suede.

Guys, I use Mcguires leather conditioner/cleaner lotion and the wipes which works great, but had a misshap I'm wondering if you could speak into. Tonight my wife spilled some sunscreen on the rear seat of my '03 disco, she quickly grabed a baby wipe to clean up the spill. Well it removed the beige tint that is on the leather to reveal the brown natural leather underneath. Any ideas how to cover these brown spots up?

I read all the replys and just got goose bumps down the back of my neck.
All the stuff mentiones is pure junk in that it does not maintain the PH level in the leather and just dries it out.
Having grown up around horses and lots of leather saddles and tach, you learn early the only way to keep leather lasting forever is saddle soap and Lexol conditioner. Sure it is a two step process done over 2 days, total time of less the 2 hours, but yor leather will stay soft, won't crack or fade.
Just a thought.

Where do you get the lexoil? Also, any thoughts on what I should do about the fixing the seats due to the "beige" removal from the sunscreen/baby wipe combo?

I picked up Lexoil at a local shoe store ... I think wallymart has it too back in the shoe department
it's in a little brown jug smells bad ...

for the beige removal talk to a furniture repair place ... they fixed a rip in mine and "filled" in the color for $50
