Daily Answer is excerpted from the JustAnswer archives and features information provided from a Expert on JustAnswer:

Q: The leather driver's seat in my Toyota Sienna is dirty and looks like it's going to crack. Is there a cream or solution for cleaning it that will help give the leather a longer life?

A: Here are two recommendations:

If you have a Majestic Solutions distributor in your area, then this would be a good place to purchase cleaning and treatment solutions. These are the chemicals most commonly found at dealers and at high-end detail shops; however, the chemicals are very pricey.

If you want to find a solution at your local parts store, the best product you can commonly find is made by Lexol. They make a cleaner and a protectant solution (2 separate bottles), and this will not dry your leather out when you clean it, as other solutions may do.
