Made the mistake a while ago to use a paste type leather cleaner/conditioner and, over a year later, I still have the evidence in the holes. I have tried the shop vac and it worked somewhat. Have considered a small drill bit to clean the holes, but very hesitant to do that.

Now, I only use the pre-moistened wipes, but would love to use a good quality product on them.

I like the Turtle Ice premium interior care spray. I've used on everything inside.
I still use Lexol occasionally, but when I want a quick wipe down, I use the Ice.

I use the teeth of a comb to perforate the holes. Works great. And a nice spray of 303 Aerospace to condition.

Adams doesn't leave crud in the holes.

But if you do have some paste still stuck in them, I would think that a toothpick would get it out. ?

A toothpick might do, but I thought spinning a tiny drill bit would pull stuff out of the holes instead of pushing it around.

I wouldn't use a drill on my leather seats. You still have to push the bit through the hole anyway which would just push the goop in. Just use a comb tooth, the leather isn't that thick so it just dissipates into the foam.

No drill. Toothpick but will take a while. I use lexol cleaner and conritioner. Happy. Try a soft brush. Softer then a tooth brush and just try cleaning it a couple times. You use warm water to help open pours . Spray cleaner on with warm ,don't wanna go to hot water ,and scrub and clean leather. Don't need to use to much elbow grease . Then condition. Its like 16 bucks or so for a bottle of both at Walmart. My old job used this stuff and that's how I learned of it and used it. Good luck
