A trick I use, is heat the leather by wrapping it in damp microfiber cloths that have been soaked in warm water. Make sure you drain off the excess water as you want to open the pores and not soak them. Then use a weak, good quality leather cleaner to lightly clean off any contaminant. Once cleaned and dried, apply a good quality leather feed and allow it to soak in before taking off the excess with a clean microfiber. The trick is not the aggressively scrub the leather as it will eventually remove the dye. removing the oily contaminant caused by your hands will help reduce the "shine"
