Question Good interior leatherette cleaning products?

Well I was in my car today taking some of our old ski's to play it again sports, and I noticed, that my light grey interior is really starting to look dirty. I need something strong to take out the grime? Any suggestions?
On top of that, I had to fold the right hand back seat down to fit the skis through, and when my mom shut the passenger door, the edge of the ski, made a a 3cm gash on the door leather part.
Shit happens, but I was a little pissed!!!!!
Cheers
Jay

LEXOL is what I think is the best, and its been reffered by "Two Guys in a Garage" TV show.

They have both a cleaner and condition in seperate bottles. WORKS GREAT

Well, I bought this stuff called "Mothers Leather cleaner" I heard mothers products are good. Of course I am a dumb ass and have leatherette in my car, and this also says not to use on rough leather surfaces. So I guess I am going to take it back, I don't want it to ruin anything!

One is real leather, and mine I am pretty sure is an imitation leather. I am pretty sure mine is not real leather.
