Don't forget the saddle soap first, besides cleaning the leather, it resets the PH level in the leather soft if stays soft and doesn't crack.

Thank you for the tip fire1427. I got in touch with a car leather repair guy through a furniture repair store. He was able to fix this good as new for $50. He just airbrushed the same tint on. It was done about two months ago and still looks great. Thank you also discomike for the guidsance on leather care, I'm going to be buying some saddle soap and Lexoil soon!

Make sure to treat that new dyed area with the same procedure.

The Rover dealer in Tacoma, WA sells the Lexoil wipes. It's what I've been using

Go to a good shoe shop and buy bottles of saddle soap and Lexol. You can't get enough liquid from the wipes to really allow it to soak into the leather, remember, you are treating the whole leather, not just the surface.

The sprays and wipes are good for a quick cleaning, however if you want to save your leather and keep it from drying out use saddle soap and lexoil.
You will notice the difference in the look and feel.

Default Saddle soap

Question about the saddle soap. Do you use canned soap or is there a spray now for easier application? I just got my hands on a 2011 HSE in great condition but the seats are pretty firm. No damage, but Id like to soften them up a bit.

Thanks!
