Be careful using harsher chemicals on your car, any waxs or protectants, will be removed, as well as drying out your paint (this may sound silly, but I am a car detailer).

Any combination of the cleaner and conditioner for leather are fairly good.

Ensure it is PH neutral, (as it is a skin, just like your wifes skin it needs nice balanced cleansers).

Clean small areas at a time, start with the least abrasive method, such as a microfiber cloth, getting the cleaner to a lather, and removing the lather before it has time to settle, this will 'pull out' the dirt from the pores of the skin/hide. Moving to a brush like a horse hair brush.

This should leave the hide clean, matte and just a bit sticky, then apply the conditioner, and let it sit for about 30 seconds, then wipe the excess off with a clean microfiber cloth, the product should not leave the hide shinny, but a nice clean matte look.

In a pinch I have used Mothers, Auto Glym (there new white line of products) and Meguires with good success.

I've always used Zaino Z9 and Z10 on all my cars. It's a little pricey but I love it.

Talking

Was told to use the old Kiwi shoe polish on the plastic surrounds of my Grand Cherokee Laredo as it was VERY sun faded. It worked but then I tried some wd 40 on a small part & wow what a difference, especially on the part I just did with the shoe polish

Just be careful using WD-40. It is a petroleum based product and if you keep using it it will further dry out the plastic's natural oils.

Next time try peanut butter. Yes, I know it sounds strange but the natural oils in it will bring it up black and shiney without drying it out.
