I have some leather cleaner that is 99% water .5% dog snot and .5% cleaner. I am looking for something better than that to use.

Help control the squid population, have your squid spayed or neutered

You don't have what I use, and what I think most people use. Some water on a paper towel or a nasty sponge.

Armor all, that's nasty, who wants to be lubed up sliding around on their bike?!

When I picked up my suit from Z Leathers they gave me Lexol Cleaner and Lexol Conditioner. I'm happy so far.

I vote Lexal as well. I have even experimented with it on the leather seats in my car and it does a great job.

Right now I'm going with the damp towel. And let me tell you out here in the country we hit some big ones. Nothing like tearing around through the fields with a pair of wings flapping around on your faceshield.

now i've heard a bit of a counterpoint to some of these cleaners. i hear they can actually deteriorate the stitching in the suits, which obviously mean they can tear apart easier if sliding across the tarmac. has anyone else heard of this??
