Autoglym Leather Care Balm fixes sticky steering wheel..

Hi, not exactly an earth shattering revelation, but I cleaned my worn sticky horrible steering wheel this evening then applied loads of Autoglym leather care balm, and it now looks way better, and is smooth/soft and not sticky in the slightest! Amazing how much difference it makes.

I used autoglym leather cleaner to clean it, but I’m sure any non-branded leather cleaner or gentle soap would work just as well mate

I use a magic eraser on mine every few months (99p for two from Home Bargains), strips off all the 'whatever' that makes it shiny, comes up as a soft, matt leather finish again. I then use a bit of Collinite No.855 to protect it.

I used packs of baby wipes from the pound shop to shift all the shiny black stuff. Loads of black came off too Shocked It's more like a matt finish now. Looks way better Smile

Once had an accident body shop return my car having done gloss treatment to a matt finish dashboard.

After getting over my frustration, I removed the gloss covering with leather cleaner; worked a treat Very Happy

Just used a magic sponge with some leather cleaner, loads of black came off and the grain is starting to reappear in the leather. Might have another go and try an get more grain back. It is not shiny any longer.
