Care for new saddle

Thought I put it here since I'm NEW to proper care
I got a brand new saddle, and I want to take as best of care as possible.
I've always had synthetic/cheapy training saddles that I didn't really care about, and never have learned the best brands etc.
What are your routines?
I want to keep the seat from getting creases in the middle if you know what I'm talking about.

I usually just condition and clean it at least once a month, more depending on frequency. Make sure you have a saddle cover on it when you are not using it, it will help it keep clean. I suggest using products from Effax.

I would look into the manufacturer's specific instructions. The saddle maker I want a saddle from has a certain kind of flocking and he showed me the difference between a saddle where the owner had religiously wiped the underside down with a slightly damp cloth after every ride and another saddle where they hadn't, and the neglected saddle was a rock while the maintained saddle was soft and springy. That's pretty specific care, so I would imagine that any saddle would need its own certain kind of maintenance plan.
