Apply cleaning solution with applicator brush or just with cleaning cloth (using the wrap cloth two finger technique) with circular motions, massaging conditioner by brush on all leather surfaces and making sure entire area gets covered. Let the leather rest for 30 min., allowing proper absorption of conditioner.
