safe and effective
July 20, 2014
This is an excellent product. It really deep cleans the seats and removes previous products that have penetrated the finished coating on the seats. Its also a very fool proof product because you know regardless of the type of leather (finished, analine) it will safely clean them without pulling color on unprotected or old leather. It comes in a foaming dispenser bottle that works fairly well. Due to the consistency of the product though, the foaming action is not that great, but just enough.
The product is also water based, so while its cleaning its also hydrating your seats. Something that is noticeable after wiping off the cleaner. It leaves the leather with a flat matte look and nice soft hydrated feeling. Perfect prep for any leather protectant (especially LM Protection cream).
Leather Master markets this cleaner as medium in strength. They also have "Soft" cleaner, and Rapid S cleaner. And in my experience this cleaner is more on the medium to strong side. Dont waste your time on the "Soft" cleaner IME. While it is effective, it takes you longer to clean the seat. If you have a very severe film of dirt imbedded in the seats on finished leather I highly suggest jumping straight to the Rapid S cleaner.
Regardless of which cleaner you choose from Leather Masters, I suggest using a tool like a brush or coarse foam to help agitate the cleaner. Since the product foams out of the bottle its not the fastest way to clean your seats like a spray and wipe product, so just be aware of that.
Pros:Powerful cleaning action + Water based + Foaming style bottle + Always safe and foolproof + Very Effective at removing imbedded dirt + Hydrates while cleansing
Cons:Foaming product causes you to focus on small areas of the seat + Not the fastest way for a professional to clean seats versus spray and wipe products + Price/Quantity + Knowing that LM offers a stronger cleaner that works faster (Rapid S Cleaner)
