I do since I have the JCW Steering Wheel and Shift Knob. I uses Mothers Leather Tech just love the stuff. I do not use the sponge that comes with it I use my fingers to apply it that way it will not go into the cracks and tiny holes.

The stuff is a little sticky so don,t worry ...it will buff out.:D I use a soft towel to remove all the dirt and a micro fiber towel to give it a nice shine. It looks great and keeps the leather soft what I think is a real important here with the AZ sun and heat. I do this once a month btw if you have leather seats it works great on it too. I used Mothers Leather Tech for years on my SLK and it kept the seats looking like new.

Here is a little info on it. You can buy it at Auto Parts Stores Amazon and other places.

Stop the aging process of leather in its tracks!

Mothers Leather Cream Moisture-Rich Conditioner is the perfect solution to dry and dull finished leather surfaces. Advanced multi-layer hydration and anti-aging properties go beyond conventional conditioning methods to nourish, protect and rejuvenate finished leather surfaces, leaving them soft and supple. Leather is an expensive option in most vehicles and Mothers LeatherTech Moisture Infusion Gel Cream is inexpensive insurance for keeping the leather in your vehicle feeling soft, supple and protected.

The secret to the effectiveness of Mothers Leather Cream Moisture-Rich Conditioner is quite simple. Aloe is fused with premium grade conditioners to replenish the natural oils in leather that are lost over time due to heat and sunlight. The formula also contains what Mothers calls moisture lock; this aids in protecting the leather to prevent future fading, drying and cracking. Regular application of Mothers Leather Cream Moisture-Rich Conditioner will keep your finished leather surfaces soft, supple and looking new for years to come.

The key to success with Mothers Leather Cream Moisture-Rich Conditioner is to first clean the surface with Mothers Leather Wash Foaming Cleanser. This will remove body oils, stains, dirt and debris that would otherwise prevent Leather Cream Moisture-Rich Conditioner from penetrating deep into the surface. Use these two advanced leather care products in conjunction with each other and your vehicle’s leather surfaces will retain a like-new feel and appearance for years to come.

Note: Not intended for nubuck, suede or alcanatra.



here is a little Video on using the foam and conditioner



Sorry if my post sounded like a commercial.:D:D

Thanks for the info! I need something like this in Spring to condition the leather seats in my SLK. Does this contain a UV blocker?

When cleaning the interior I use a desinfecting solution to clean the steering wheel one in a while but never used a leather care product before. I'm a bit affraid to mess up the stitching on my JCW steering wheel I guess. The leather gets conditioned by the oil and moisture my own skin is releasing. But that's my personal opinion.

Use leather care products on the seats of our cars every year after removing all the dust and dirt with a dustbuster and a damp cloth. Anyway, my F56 is still too new for the leather to show some wear.

It's never too soon to start nourishing your leather. I treat mine every 3/4 months :)

Creams are no good for modern leathers as they have coatings on top of the hide and most non pores so will sit ontop and not go into the leather, unlike older leather that needed conditioning to replesh moisture to stop cracking and drying out.
Things have moved on a lot since then and I have tried loads of leather cleaners and brushes for it but for steering wheel I always use Dr Leather wipes they are the best I have tried and great on the leather seats if not to bad and his spray on liquid is one of the best I have tried as well.
The guy that owns the company is a leather specialist and that's all he does no shampoo's coatings APC etc


Avoid the creams as will make the wheel sticky IMHO , and also their is so much spin in the detailing industry its marketing is fantastic but many times a basic cheaper product does 95% for a fraction of the cost apart from some great company manufactured products out there and some coatings aside

IMO Mother's is a very disappointing off the shelf product. I prefer to stay away from anything you can find at the retail outlets. I love the Wolfgang and pinnacle products for my car. You don't need much and even the small sample size bottles will last me 6-7 months with detailing sessions every 2-3 weeks or so. YMMV
