    Got a nail brush and tooth brush as well?

    Soapy water will do the trick,

    Get the leather section by section wet with the soapy water and scrub it with the nail brush and use the tooth brush for smaller areas, then dry it with a mf towel,

    If its really dirty go over it a seccond time.

    Leather is strong enough to with stand some scrubing

    What is it with you and the Isle Of Skye?

    Must be rocking up there mate if your considering cleaning your seats on holiday lmao!.. more importantly where's the pictures of these newly fitted leathers?

    My mum cleans the leather in her car with soapy water.. then again that's no recommendation from a women who cleaned the outside of the car with washing up liquid until I found out and introduced her to CG maxi suds..

    When you said magic eraser I thought you meant this..http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Autoglym-Magic...item4aa9f3c1bb

    Probably the same things too be honest, work a treat on plastics and vinyls though as you can see from Bens pics

    One of the only things I've found that will get black kick marks off the plastic door trims with minimal effort
