Cleaning tips for cream leather driver's / passenger seats

In a Class A; you walk in and out past the (cream) leather captains' chairs. What do you use to clean the leather skirts, etc.?

We use Kiwi brand liquid leather cleaner/conditioner. Works good on everything, including vinyl. Smells good too.
I also have used Mcguires but it really makes the leather slippery.

Any decent brand of vinyl & leather upholstery cleaner should work well, e.g. the stuff you would use in your car. The exception might be if the upholstery is real leather rather than a synthetic, which may be found in some luxury-class models. For real leather, I'd suggest Murphy's Oil Soap and/or a product specifically designed to keep real leather clean, soft and moist. Respected products include Weiman's Leather Cleaner, Meguiar's Leather Cleaner, Leather Honey.

Just plain old Saddle Soap will do the trick on "Real Leather"

Chemical Guys cleaner then conditioner. Off white seats that were really bad, I never thought they would be anything but stained, it's hard to guess how many years it took them to get like that. The conditioner disappeared when I put it on them.

We have leather furniture in our living room that is 16 years old. When we purchased it, the salesperson highly recommended Guardsman products. I have used their 'Protect and Preserve' cream faithfully, and those pieces show only the slightest wear to this day.
Some furniture stores carry Guardsman products, or it can be found online.

On most even with real leather seats the skirts are pleather.
