cleaning suede

What is a good cleaner to use on a suede seat? What is a good leather cleaner for my saddle? Thanks

My favorite leather cleaner is Leather New. It's a liquid/spray, so just spray it on your rag/sponge first, then scrub the tack. Don't spray it directly on the tack or it may drip.

I don't have much suede, but the one time I cleaned a Western saddle, I used some stuff I bought at Wilson's Leather that's made for cleaning purses and such! Seemed to work just fine!

Hmm..there are a lot of different products out there. A lot of them are brand specific, tho I question that one.There is a new products I just got for free with my new custom saddle. I wasn't impressed with that stuff myself. It's called Lederbalsam. Would not spend money on that product.
It also really depends how you like to clean your saddle. Many products with different ways of applying, different textures. There are also many different types of leather so that will affect what you like should be using for your tack. :)

I've never used a cleaner on my suede seat. I just use a stiff brush to raise the nape. This usually helps it look good.
I use Murphy's wood soap and water with a sponge to clean off the leather when it gets really dirty and to get the sweat/salt build up off. Then I use some stuff called Skidmores to moisturize it.
I love the Skidmores. Once a year I do a light neetsfoot oiling.
