    I've always used saddle soap and a sponge which has proved excellent but I recently bought a spray bottle of leather cleaner from a market stall. Does a good job too just sprayed on the rubbed with a cloth.

    In Jocklandshire there were a lot of lads with Wolf cow leathers. One said my Roo leathers must be new. He was suprised when I said they were 4.5 years old so I must be doing something right :D
     
  3. Drape a wet towel over the leathers and leave for 10 Minutes. They will fall off "like Flies" :lol: same with your Lid, works everytime and saves on expensive "remedies". I think Tour hotels must bloody hate the likes of me! ;)

    Warm water and a sponge, then a touch of saddle soap after of leather cream if feeling lazy. Works for me, stubborn bugs might need soaking for a few minutes and then a rub.

    I have seen an article in a bike mag which recommends baby wipes. Not tried it myself yet though.

    I use leather furniture wipes from a supermarket. They do a great job.
