    gliptone leather products

    I've used a few leather cleaners and conditioners but I have to say my favourite product is gliptone. Not just great in cleaning and keeping the leather looking young but also has that old leather smell which you just can't beat.

    Here's some before and after pictures of my XJS.

    Before, tired looking dirty leather.

    And that's exactly the reason why I use it. Looks great, well done.

    So apart from Gliptone what other leather produces do you guys and girls use?
    Are there any others out there which give a nice old leather smell that you would recommend?
