BalmoralGreen - Its up to you whether or not you use liquid leather or not. All I can do is to give you the information that the BLC came up with. They are the world renowned experts in such matters. One thing is for sure, you cannot make automotive leather softer by applying a product. The degree softness is dictated during the tanning operation. Automotive leather is deliberatly made with a firm feel to keep it from stretching and going baggy like Nora batty's tights. The softness you feel after applying such products is the softening of the pigment coating. If you apply a heat gun to it, it will feel soft just before the surface starts to melt.

RichB - Out of all the products available Conolly's hide food is probabbly ok.I am sure they would not put their name to something that would damage leather. Unfortunately they are no longer in business. Just make sure you are using the correct product. Dont forget Connolly's made both old and modern leathers and there should be a different product for each.


Bliarout - If the sofa is in continual sunlight it will always fade. I have not really come across anyone using your solution but if it works for you stick with it. If it were the seats or back cushions that would be a different matter.

I use it on them too.... Just have to remember to buff it off very well

I use the black restorer stuff on my car seats as well if they get scratched.... Anything that can cope with a pair of kids school shoes gets my vote

Is there a report on these findings publicly available? I have several different cars with different leather treatments. It would be nice to know which ones need which products for cleaning.
