sorry if someone already mentioned, now that some folks have their mach-e, what are people using for the interior vegan leather seats? leather stuff? interior detail stuff? 303 protectant?! nothing and just wipe it down occasionally with a damp cloth?

Haven't had it long enough to need deeper cleaning, but I did wipe everything down with a Chemical Guys all-purpose interior cleaner. I've used it on my other cars for a while and it works well and is safe for a multitude of surfaces (including leather).

I don't think a generic leather cleaner/protectant would be bad on the seats.

"Pan the Organizer" says in some of his videos that many factory surfaces are protected with clearcoat, including exterior paint (obviously), but also factory wheels, leather or vinyl seats, and steering wheel.

If this is true (which I don't really know), doesn't this suggest that decent automotive cleaners are designed for clearcoat moreso than any special characteristics of leather versus vinyl?

Since it's vegan, just rub it down with some bacon grease :D

I am assuming we can use these for the steering wheel too - read some where that Ford had to come up with new material for the steering wheel.

Lol - its mostly plastic I am guessing - there is description anywhere I could find that describes what it is made of. I am sure its not made of plants ;)

I've used this cleaner in the past on our MB synthetic seats and it works well. They have conditioner also but I'm not sure if the glycerin is vegetable or animal derived. I'm sure other less expensive cleaners would be fine.

Can be bought off Amazon. Works great on removing coffee my wife spills and hand sanitizer stains.
