    The front seats of my ‘17 1794 are getting dirty (jeans and pants rubbing )on the sides from sliding off them when you get out of the truck. What is the best way to clean them?

    There are a number of good leather cleaners out there....Wolfgang, Leatherique, Leather Masters, etc. It's best to keep them clean as you go, especially with denim dye transfer. When I come up against really dirty leather seats, I break out the steamer.

    So far on my 1794, I have been able to take care of any scuffs with a microfiber towel. Just lightly dampen it with some distilled water and lightly wipe the stain, making sure to dry any remaining moisture right away.

    Google, "auto fetish detail". I've watched a lot of videos by this guy and he knows his stuff. I've done some of the things he recommends to my seats in all my cars and have been very pleased. There's a bunch of products you can buy off the shelf, but it was more of a how to use the products that I found the most helpful.

    Toyota dealers use, and Toyota recommends Lexol leather products. IIRC the 1794 also has some suede inserts? Idk what to use on that, but I use lexol on my leather and it's been great.

    I used to use Lexol cleaner and leather conditioner. Always moisturize the leather after cleaning. It’s skin so it need lotion too. It will last a long time if you treat it right.

    I don’t have leather in my truck, but I use either Lexol like @Pudge recommended, or CG Leather Detailer on my wife’s Sequoia. Both work very well, and I think both are available at Walmart.
