STP made a pretty good interior leather cleaner. Haven't had leather interior for a couple years... I assume STP still makes it.

well, I need a little advice. you know I was having a problem with my interior. I switched to good ol' Armor All because I've had luck with it in the past also. Well same thing is happening. the seat become tacky and I don't know what to do to fix this. Maybe it is cheap leather or something?? the wife's car doesn't do this at all.

You never mentioned what the problem was in your original post. Knowing now that you had a tacky residue helps. I think what happened is the first cleaner you used left a residue that you didn't get completely removed. Then when you used the armor all you still had the residue on there from the original cleaner. I would suggest using ivory soap (or whatever soap I suppose, I just happened to use ivory) mixed w/warm water to get the original left over residue off then hit it with the armor all. I've been using armor all for decades on all sorts of leather seats with zero problems. I have had problem like you mentioned when I have used leather cleaners that were sold to me with a new car package and the soap/warm water worked great. Hope that helps. :)

I did that yesterday with some dish detergent but it is pretty cheap detergent. I may go with something stronger. funny thing is that the back seats don't seem to do this but then again I don't really sit back there. so next pretty day I will use a better soap cleaner and redo the armor all.

thanks, I've never had this problem. with the mustang it didn't have leather seat but vinyl and years and years of cleaning them I've never had problems

I'm wondering if the dealer didn't cause this problem. I've scrubbed the passanger seat and about have it fixed. it is a very different shade of gray now. I wonder if the dealer didn't put something on the seats that shined it but also was a bit of color in it too, to make the seats look very new. seat has no shine to it at all. And now that I look at the driver seat what I thought was maybe the leather starting to peel looks more like the layer of whatever is on the seat coming off and once I scrub it it will look all one color and even.

    • Atlantis is amazing 👏  Was my album of that year 
    • A lot to like on this release but also some stuff just too light for me. 
    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable. Other weird little things about this record: CD is released in Europe as a f*cking digipak for some reason. Who's beind this strange and unnecessary decision, the band or the label? Also, no writing credits. You have to go to Discogs or Spotify to find out who wrote these tunes.
