Reshining Leather Jacket

I just bought a used leather teknic jacket, I want to clean it and get it reshined and possibly get the scuff marks out of the jacket. I looked around at a couple of cleaners down here in SW, but they are expensive (around $70-90) for just the basic cleaning.

Im a little tight on money and I would rather do it my self. Is there anyway to reshine the jacket and possibly get out the scuff marks(they are small and around the seams of the jacket)?

Try LEXOL.

http://www.lexol.com/lexol.html

First, remove any dust, soil with a dry cloth. Then apply the liquid directly to the leather and rub it with your fingers (use disposable nitril gloves), let it dry and then wipe with a dry cloth. Old 100% cotton t-shirts are good for this.

Not sure about the scuff marks.
