Yup, I guess we could.
I agree that most products are pretty safe. I just use the ArmorAll leather care product and that stuff seems to be ok, as the black leather seats in the two 164s still look and feel good (after first using Kiwi "sponge on" black shoe polish), and then I slather on the ArmorAll stuff liberally, let it soak in some and then buff it just a little, trying not to remove most of what is left, and then let it dry for the rest of the day. The next day, I just run a clean rag over everything just to put a little shine on it.
As I said, I think most of these types of products are ok. I just happen to use the ArmorAll products on everything, seats, vinyl, plastic, in the cabin, in the engine bay, whatever. Doesn't seem to have hurt anything as far as I can tell, but who knows for sure.
The above works for black leather seats. If you have the tan leather, use one of the products which uses an appropriate dye to return the color.
