    Most of the good leather cleaners are cream based such as `Meguiars Gold` but these block the perforated holes on the leather seats on the SLK model R170 which looks terrible. I have been looking around for a clear liquid type cleaner but have not had much luck so far - can anyone recommend anything ?

    I have perforated seat in my car and I use Gliptone. The cleaner part is liquid and yes, the conditioner is a cream but I have not had any "blockage" problems. One only needs very little.

    If you're blocking the perforations you're using too much. I use the fresh cream on the cloth on the solid bits then use the residual, ie that soakedinto the cloth on the perforated. Works just fine.

    You could always try using a soft bristled brush to work in and remove any excess.

    I've used Diamondbrite and Autoglym creams.
