You don't actually know anything about leather, do you? Do you work in a tannery?

I thought the strong detergent would strip the natural softening oils out of the leather and promote cracking. When I had my Legend I used Zymol with great results but I just didn't keep up with the maintenance.

clothes detergent will strip the natural softening oils out, but dish detergent will not. I guarantee it.

alot of people swear by using a 6:1 water/woolite solution for cleaning leather. either way, after cleaning leather it is necessary to condition the leather to give it bqck some of the oils that are taken away when cleaning. lexol makes a great leather conditioner.

Quick question....how often do you clean your leather? My RSX Type S is on the way I can't wait...just curious.

I don't know about this, honestly.

We've been recommending Lexol cleaner and conditioner for awhile now and it seems to be working very well for most of us here...and no one has complained about any damage. In fact, without proper conditioning, cracking of the leather will follow rather quickly (at least with the subpar RSX leather). My .02 cents

I just use the Mothers conditioning shit. Works good, and my RSX sits in the sun all day... My leather is holding up really well.
