I wipe the seats/interior with Meguiar's leather cleaner/conditioner every other day just cuz I know there'll be shoe prints on the door sill or in back of the center console.

Plan on doing mine for the first time since I bought it in November. I'll be using Luxol cleaner and conditioner. Bought it off Amazon. Prior to this I've just wiped them down with a damp cloth weekly. Helps to get rid of the paw prints in the back seat.

So, far I have only used a damp paper white towel.

I am considering getting Leather Honey. I have heard it is very good and often used in high performance sports cars and high-end luxury cars.

Has anyone used this product?

I use Zaino Z10 Leather in a Bottle. Excellent product. Doesn't have the greasy feel and smells very good.
I use it as needed (about twice a year)

I hate that stuff. Sorry. I tried it and the seats were completely slippery. Did all I could to get it off. I read on a detailing forum conditioners on these seats don't do anything but rub off on your pants. The leather is coated therefore conditioners just lay on the surface -- like Armoral on your dash. Shiny shiny and that's it.

I wipe down with a damp microfiber cloth, then use Optimum Leather Protectant on both the seats and the dash and other plastic surfaces.

Optimum Protectant Plus offers complete protection for interior leather, vinyl, plastic & rubber dressing. vinyl and rubber dressing, vinyl

I use the same stuff including their leather cleaner. The Z10 makes your car smell as though you have brand new leather seats and it doesn't make them all shiny or have that sliding greasy feeling when you sit in them.

I usually clean and condition the seats (all 3 rows) 2x a year around Summer and Winter.

Anyone tried the Lexol leather cleaner and conditioner? I did some research and it seems to be one of the most recommended out there, aside from Conolly Hide Care which I feel is too expensive for the Pilot.

Lexol Leather Cleaner, Conditioner & Vinylex
Ordered it from Amazon

Here is the poll for most popular leather products from Autopia.
Lexol comes second (after Z10 )
http://www.autopia.org/forum/autopia...r-cleaner.html
Lexol is probably the best budget choice.
