Leather seat care

Today i washed the G6. The weather was actually decent today. So i clean out the interior. I use the ArmorAll Leather Care Gel. I was pleased with the results i got. I recommend this for leather seats.

Thanks for the Armor All recommendation.
My leather seats creak like mad. It's due to the poor engineering that places the plastic trim on the outboard side that holds the seat heater switch. The sides of the seats are not genuine leather, therefore it is plastic against plastic and which creaks like mad.
I noticed that the leather seats in the new Malibu are designed the same way.
My thought was to take a felt material with proper adhesive backing and place it over the edge of the plastic trim to create a barrier. I have tan leather so I'd have to find something in brown or tan.
Anyone have a better suggestion?

I also use and recomend this product. I recommend applying a moderate coat for a first time application and buffing it in gently. Don't buff any cracks. after that a light coat to maintain will do.

Hijacking the thread now. My leather has but cheek imprints in it..... how can i tighten it up? ice?

I use Gold Class Rich Leather Wipes By Meguiar and love it, it adds a nice refreshing shine to it.

At least most interior products I use don't have a bad odor, and for the odd one I try that does smell, at least it goes away in a day or two.

I've used Armor All Leather Gel and the Leather Spray. I like the shine and smoothness it adds.

I've tried Lexol but the two step clean and condition is tedious and for me, leaves the seats feeling grippy and sticky instead of smooth.

Will have to try Mothers Wipes/Spray sometime.
