Default Steering Wheel Slippery

I have a 2001 CL type S and my steering wheel is completely dry but
slippery. What can I do to roughen it up? I'd rather not use a
steerign wheel cover because those things look like absolute crap.
Unless there's one that can't be seen or won't look overtly out of
place.

A Lace-up, leather cover looks great, but is a bit of a pain to install. If
you thread between the stitches & don't wrap the thread, it's hardly
noticeable.

There might be Armor All on it. Don't know how to remove that though....
maybe mineral spirits.

Get a good high quality leather cleaner/conditioner. Lexol or Meguires make
great products for this. The skin oil builds up in the leather and need to
be cleaned out.

Yea, if you take the time to lace it properly the leather covers can
look really sharp.

Thats actually what I used, and there doesn't seem to be much of a
difference. I'll try it again.

try the Zaino leather cleaner and then the conditioner. It works every time
for me! (Zaino Z9 and Z10)
