I have a new 2012 Honda Civic, and I’d like to try Leather Honey. Is it too soon?
Most auto manufacturers seal the leather interior with a urethane protective coat. This barrier protects the leather from staining and scratching, but it also prevents a product like Leather Honey from penetrating the leather. We always recommend testing in a discreet area first, and you should definitely do that in this case: If the Leather Honey doesn’t absorb, there is likely a protective barrier. You’ll want to wait for that barrier to begin to break down – oils from your body and general use will soften that finish over time. Once it does, you can begin treating and protecting the leather with Leather Honey. Leather Honey will protect against sun damage, restore areas that have already been damaged by the sun, and make your leather seats last longer.
