I have many leather cased (not leather covered wood, or fake leatherette) portable radios in my collection and am wondering which are the best recommended method(s) and product(s) to use to clean and restore (rejuvenate) the leather finish and preserve it from further deterioration (protection). Also, is there a way to regain some flexibility when the old leather became rigid and brittle due to aging ? Thanks to all for your help/advices.

Get this--it transformed my Raytheon Transistor Radio from a dingy brownish red to a bright lipstick red.

Some of that Chemical Guys leather stuff is in Walmart, I believe. In the automotive department where they sell stuff to clean and preserve automotive leather interiors.
