Cleaning ST Leather Seats

My 04 SVT seats were easy to clean, my new seats are "odd".

They seem like they soak up dirt and oil.
I am a mechanic, so could "greasy pants syndrome" damage them?

Is there a product or method to keep them nice and new looking? I don't want to to try trial and error on my new car...

HELP?!?

If you are routinely soiled, get some nice covers for the seats. Their are lots of neat ones out there that feel better than the stock cloth/pleather.

There are products which can minimize staining, but if your ST has the same "suede" texture as mine does, it might not be ideal, thus the cover would come in handy. 303 makes a decent fabric guard type spray. So you could give that a whirl. Should be about $20 for 32oz...

Covers will kinda defeat the purpose of getting the leather seats.

They do have that "rough" leather on the inside panel, and smoother on the outsides.

I will try the 303 spray, I used another 303 spray previously on a tonneu cover on my truck, and it worked nicely...

Thnax for the input :)
