    sorry if this seems a bit mundane,but... whats the correct way to keep your leather in good nick? do you store it away whilst its still we or should you let it dry out?
    i have to buy a new one every couple of months because they loose their ability to absorb water and become hard and rough.

    All you do is make sure you dampen it before use

    Godd advice Gap.. but the WM is the worst of the lot.. granted its the easiest to get hold of, as they are sold at halfrauds...

    One i am most pleased with at the moment is the dodo juice supernatural large drying towel. No need to squeeze the water out as it will dry the whole car.

    I was impressed with the Meguiars Water Magnet but I may have to look into the dodo one

    A whole car without ringing
