Leather products have a cleaning code...Type A Ailine, Type P Pigmented , Type N Nubuck.... Best to identify the type of leather. Most interior stuff is type P pigmented. Bring a sample to an Upholstery shop.

Roni, it is very important to apply only products specific to the cleaning and conditioning of leather. You never apply wax to leather as it will clog the pores of the hide and promote premature cracking and peeling of the top grain. Wax will also attract dirt and cause the leather to darken. And a waxed leather cushion will want to remain attached to the person sitting on it when he or she gets up.
