    Default Seat Treatment

    We're all familiar with the older Triton's pleather seats, or shall I say covers.

    I use Shield's leather wipes, they work very well for keeping the seats clean, but has anyone found a product that works on the pleather to keep it a bit more supple and shiny?

    I use Shield Leather Care for the PS seats and the TV room set, leather stays soft and clean. Car seats gets the TLC every six months and TV room set once a year.

    I have Melville&Moon covers on the front seats for about 2 years, but still do the 6 month treatment, and don't forget the steering wheel, gear and TC selector knobs and the door trim panels, there are leather inserts as well.

    It is mostly me using the PS and weekends SWAMBO joins me. The two rows in the back does not come into contact with homo sapiens body parts very often.

    In the almost ten years I've had the Triton I might have rubbed some leathercare stuff on maybe three times only because someone mentioned it and I thought I really must. Seats are perfect still though even after years of wet salt water broeke sitting on them. So sorry Morne, I have no advice.

    Have a family member who has a furniture factory and does a lot of leather suites, he recommends Aqueous cream. We are using it on our leather couches, and it seems ok.

    Interesting.
