leather care: Colourlock or Swisswax

I have done enough research on leather care but even doing a simple Google search does not show Colourlock or Swisswax being recommended.

I came across Colourlock by mistake and watched them repair a leather seat with leather dye. It got me thinking since my wife's 2012 GTI Autobahn with black leather seats has a very small minor leather wear on the driver's side left bolster by the mid section of the stomach if you were sitting in the seat.

Do any of the forum members have any feedback on the Courlock and Swisswax?

If you're looking for leather cleaning specifically then Leatherique is the king in that area. It's more of a deep clean method, but one of the best.

Colourlock seems very professional and looks to be a good route if you want leather repair. I'd assume their leather cleaning products would be top notch considering their history and knowledge. Swisswax is a good company, but they definitely charge higher prices.

I absolutely love Swissvax leather care. I have the full kit that came with the cleaner, leather milk, brush, towel, etc...

The product dries quickly to a matte finish, which I prefer. I can't stand the wet look leather care that takes forever to dry.

The brush is the real key. It helps get the foaming cleaner down into the grain to lift stubborn dirt.

I use Swissvax & it’s pretty amazing. I believe some of their products are made by Colourlock. You can’t go wrong with either.
