It is amazing how you can get used to something and not even notice till something brings it to your attention.
I didn’t think the inside of my car was bad at all. A bit dusty maybe but otherwise good. But when I was offered the chance to try this Chamberlain’s Leather Milk Auto Refreshener No. 4 Leather Conditioner I figured it couldn’t hurt.
After all it offers some UV protection that will help keep the dashboard and seat covers from drying out and getting faded this summer. Besides that my hubby’s old work truck could definitely use the help.
Then when I got the product and went out to look at my car and take some pictures (most of which didn’t turn out good) I noticed that my car wasn’t just a bit dusty…in some spots it was really dirty and the vinyl was already a bit faded and looked really dry in some spots and even had some spots where it looked like it might be starting to get some cracks.
It needed refreshing!
The instructions said to clean with a damp cloth first so I did that.
Then I used the Leather Milk on it. I started with the dashboard because that is the part that other people can see mostly, and the area most in need of refreshing. Even though I cleaned it before using the Auto Refresher this is what the pad looked like after just doing the dashboard:
Looks pretty grungy right? Remember this is after cleaning with a regular wet rag! So the Leather Milk still managed to get more junk off it.
This is the passenger side door before cleaning:
This is after the Auto Refresher :
The pictures don’t really show it all that well but it looks a lot better. And it feels better when you touch it. The dry faded look is mostly gone (except in the worst spots) and even the cracked areas don’t look as bad. If this product has been used on the car from the beginning then the vinyl might still look almost new.
So it works well but the thing I really really liked most about this product is the smell. I started rubbing it on the dashboard and the smell hit and oh man that is nice! It reminds me of something but I can’t remember what…but it is a happy smell. Maybe something from when I was a kid.
It is made from natural oils and can be used on any leather or vinyl items. So if you have any leather items such coats, jackets, purses, boots, or gloves this will help keep them in great shape.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
