Throw them in a heap in the back of the van and bring them out again when you need to use them......works for me

What's all this cleaning malarky

WJB, they're talking about leathers, not instructors!

Thought you used the abrasive technique using gravel traps to clean the crud off your leathers

Agree with the clean up but the Ginsters are s[poken for! :P

Think the water is shrinking the leather though, they getting snug with the back protector, must remember to buy a smaller one

Gliptone for me.

Used it for about 5 years, and it lasts for ages. Usually pick up a bottle of cleaner and toner every other NEC show.

I'm of the WJB school of cleaning. I get home and hang them up. In the morning I put them on ... done.

Dr Ruth says,

Once they have got too dirty to be seen out in, think about buying new ones.

In the meantime, if you are amongst people who might notice how dirty they are, stand next to someone whose wearing much dirtier leathers than you. Yours won't then look too bad.

If you are really bored with absolutely nothing else to do, and your computer has gone down so you can't f*rt about on DSC message board or look at porn on the internet, try traditional dubbin to feed them, but don't overdo it cos you'll be sliding about on your seat.
