Be careful, finger nails and rings can do damage to the steering wheel.

Someday I'll tell you all about the co-worker who thought that since Armor-All does such a good job (well...) on plastics and rubber that a foot pedal treatment would be a good idea. Luckily, she discovered her error harmlessly. Then had to find a really good upholstery cleaner.

Lexol on a sponge?
wear gloves, that has been the best solution I've seen

There was a group Buy for the Lecce Steering wheels for I want to say less than $500 and I believe they have a carbon option I liked the grey D shaped with the same red stitching and leather as the OEM. It is on my List for once the car is repaired and I am employed. All the buttons and the IED(air bag) transfer over.

I used to use mink oil on my leather steering wheel in my firebird. Worked pretty well for keeping the leather supple.

Find it in the shoe care section... or the saddle care at Rural King or Tractor Supply Co.

If you get gunk on it, get some saddle soap, then treat with mink
