How do you keep the matte finish on the steering wheel?

What do you do?

Is a damp warm microfiber cloth enough or should I use an all-purpose cleaner or a leather cleaner?

I use the zaino leather cleaner and it has always stayed like as new with matte finish.

Keep your hands clean and dry and no hand cream.

BMW leather care kit

I used BMW leather care kit, and it was really good and worth it, it keeps the matte finish and make the leather feels fresh, it's 19$ on Amazon

Another vote for the Sonax product for your interior - I also swear by their 'leather foam' for the quick cleanups FWIW.. Their alcantera cleaner is my recommendation on that front as well.

For Microfiber towels, these are now the ones I rely on. Gone through 3 or 4 varieties of towel all made by 5 or 6 different companies towels and keep coming back to these.
