: Do I need to let the stuff sit before I use the car (sit in the seats for a while)?
: Whats the best application method?

It couldn't be much simpler than this:

1. clean any loose dirt from the seats, including the crevices between the pleats. You don't want the cleaning rag to pick up anything abrasive which could scuff the leather as you work the cleaner in.

2. using a clean moist cotton towel, apply the cleanser and work it around. It will make a slight lather. When you've tired of that, then wipe it off with a moist, not wet, towel.

3. apply the conditioner. I like to use my fingers to apply it, so the conditioner soaks into the leather, not the towel. Work it in good, and massage the spots which are prone to cracking, like the bolsters. I usually let it sit fairly wet for about 15 minutes, then I buff off the remainder with a clean towel. I've noticee that the big pieces on the seat back can become somewhat loose looking after a good lexol treatment. I attribute this to the leather expanding with the moisture. It's not a permanent effect, and doesn't bother me anyway, since I know the leather is better moist, than dry.
