I clean all of my leather and vinyl with a dilute solution of water and Lexol Cleaner (orange bottle). A quality, small, leather brush also helps a lot too.

Then, when dry, I use Zaino Z10 on the leather parts, and 303 Aero on the vinyl stuff. Nice clean, matt finish.

Lexol cleaner Is probably easiest on leather but takes a lot of elbow grease. Windex will plow through anything, Squirt it on and let sit for a bit then wipe it of. A good rub of Lexol or the like won't hurt afterwords won't hurt.

Of course it depends on what it's dirty with, Also, since it's not in the sun you don't have to worry about drying leather out to much ( windex might do that a little).

the leatherique products I bought a while back are amazing and do the job quite well. Cleaner, restorer, protector are all good products. They're not cheap, but last a really long time as well.
