Cleaning Dove...

Postby Bimmer325 » Fri Nov 16, 2007 9:04 am

Is there a product or something I can use to just clean up a Dove interior without going all out on it with Leatherique or an equivalent. Its just become really dirty and Im not going to totally detail it again until spring probably, but want to just clean it right now very basic.

check out your autozone or pepboys and look for a zymol or meguires 'kit' that usually have a spray type cleaner and then a conditioner. either of those two companies make good stuff.

Pull their head off then take your thumbs and, while cradling the bird in your hands, and place them on the birds chest. With a tearing motion of sorts working out from the birds sternum you should be able to remove the breast meat rather easily.

I've used Leatherique in the past and even though it's more work, the results are so much better.

That being said I used Zymol on my couch at home and wasn't unhappy with the results.

Personally I don't use Meguires on anything. Do I have a valid reason for not using it... not really, I just don't.

I've had really good experiences with lexol in the past...the cleaner suds up very nicely and does a great job of removng dirt and grime. The conditioner leaves the leather smooth like buttah
