Rusty marks on the seat leather

Noticed this afternoon that I have what appear to be rust marks on the driver's seat squab and back...........
Anybody any recommendations for cleaning - I have some Autoglym leather polish and feed but don't know if it is any good as a cleaner.

RE: Rusty marks on the seat leather

I'd think any auto leather cleaner would probably do it, if the one you have is polish then its worth a go, normally they come as a leather cleaner and a seperate care cream to keep supple, I have some leather cleaner wipes which are very handy for getting things quickly.

RE: Rusty marks on the seat leather

I was trying to get away without buying yet another car care product - my garage looks like more like the car cleaning shelf at Halfords at the moment - most of the kit is also unused.............. just like in halfords!

RE: Rusty marks on the seat leather

Done - I found a bottle of Autoglym Leather Cleaner in among all the junk in the back of the garage - never opened, lord knows how old so it got about 10 minutes of shaking. Sprayed it on rubbed it in, cleaned off with damp soft cloth as per instructions and then applied the Autoglym leather fed and balm I also had. Next job will be to restore the smell of new leather with a going over with some Gliptone that I have and to hang the Gliptone air freshener up in the back...... to get that lovely smell of new leather permanently!
