Keeping Ivory leather clean

I took delivery of my new RRS a couple of weeks ago, specifying Ivory leather was always a risk but I hadn't realised how quickly it shows the dirt.
I had Pure Guard as part of the deal but didn't realise it wasn't applied to the leather.
Calling all with Ivory leather:
- How do you keep your leather clean?
- Have you applied a leather protection to keep the dirt off, if so what is it and how does it perform?

The wife's already telling me not to wear jeans in the car! 2017my RRS 2.0 SD4 HSE, Firenze red, black and panaroof

I have Ivory and I only drive naked.
But I make sure I've had a shower first before driving!

If we all point our RR's in the same direction and accelerate at the same time can we turn back time?

United Kingdom 2012 Range Rover Sport SDV6 Autobiography Santorini Black

I have Ebony and cirrus leather in my Autobiography which is a very pale gray almost off white and it shows the slightest hint of dirt so I bought a tub of DR Leather cleaning wipes which removes all dirt with just a quick wipe over and seats a spotless again.
Black seats would of been so much easier but the light colour seats look fantastic so if I have to give them a quick wipe over who cares !
With a black seat you would of just sat in the dirt without knowing it was there. 2012 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography santorini black with ebony/cirrus interior.

Those are what I use. I`ve used Gliptone and still have some but the Dr. Leather wipes are a no brainer cos they`re so easy and quick to use. Steve.

Thanks all, Gtechniq bought and applied already. Will also be buying the DrLeather wipes in due course. Albeit found a bottle of LR leather cleaner which came with the car, it did a great job of cleaning some very minor marks (already). 2017my RRS 2.0 SD4 HSE, Firenze red, black and panaroof
