Default Which woolite to use for leather cleaning 6:1

Been seeing around the forums about using woolite as a leather cleaner 6:1, but there are several kinds? which one to use to mix with water to clean leather seats?

I just went to the store and picked up the smallest bottle of normal woolite there was.

The original plain, no frills Woolite. Better yet, go to Dollar Tree and get the bottle of "Wool Wash" and have a 10 year supply for $1. Same stuff. No great secret ingredients in the brand name product. It's just a mild surfactant-based low sudsing non-soap detergent.

Also remember that you are not really cleaning leather. With a few exceptions in the very expensive models, all Lexus leather is coated with polyurethane. You are basically cleaning the plastic coating. No special treatments or concern needed.

I have not tried Woolite for interior cleaning, but I heard good reviews about it.

It's what several manufacturers recommend. Remember you aren't cleaning leather. It's polyurethane-coated. So you're really just cleaning plastic. (I chuckle when I hear people talking about "conditioning" their leather seats.) The combo of soaps (not detergents) and anionic surfactants in wool washes are better formulated for lifting stains than most plain detergent-based cleaners.

What's the diff between soaps and detergents? Also earlier you said this: "it's just a mild surfactant-based low sudsing non-soap detergent."

Huh? First you said it is a non-soap detergent then you said the combo of soaps in wool wash (not detergents) are better.
