On other cars I've used Autoglym leather cleaner

But I'm minded to try something else on my SLK,

Suggestions?

I recommend these. Easy to use and do a great job.

I'm afraid I find the search very poor - using my preferred terms "clean leather seats" returns too many irrelevant threads.

I'll throw in a true Swedish tip - a two step cleaner:

ABSORB Leathercare set - IKEA

This product cleans well (dirt must come off, leather chairs, sofas or car seats) and as the reconditioner (leather grease) is neutral in color, it works on dual tone seats.

I used general supermarket leather wipes last year when I got my SLK & the state of the wipes when i finished were, well you wouldn't have wanted to sit on them knowing what was on the seat.

Last month, I bought some Dodo juice & gave them another clean. Bearing in mind the roof has not been down for more than a couple of miles around the block since I last cleaned them, they were filthy.

Now have nice clean seats & I used a leather balsam/conditioner (Renapur) to buff them up provide a barrier. I've used it over the years on shoes, boots & bike leathers as well.

On the theme of cleaning seats, word of warning to the wise:

Be very wary of wearing new/newish blue jeans in your SLK if you have cream leather and the weather is damp or humid [or you sweat a lot:surprise:].

I have used Leatherique for years on all my vehicles with leather seats and other leather interior trim and have been very pleased with the results.
