Would neats foot oil be better on a car seat then the Lexsol?
Always wondered but scared to try.

Does it matter for treatment if the seats are leather or pleather?

Any way to tell what the seat is made of?
Barry Neatsfoot oil is good for saddles, ball gloves or any other leathers that are in the weather but it should be applied hot! so it soaks into the leather and it stinks, LOL dont use it on car interiors !!!!! Oils also darken leather!!
