I wipe my leatherette once every two weeks with a damp clean cloth. How often should I apply vinylex?

There's no real "schedule" for applying Vinylex - there's too many variables (heat, use, dirt build-up, etc).

My schedule is that I apply it once every month (on average). Sometimes, I apply it every 3 weeks, sometimes every 6 weeks. Basically, whenever you notice that the finish has dulled, or whenever things are looking particularly dirty.

Sorry I couldn't give you a better answer, but hope this helps nonetheless.

Oh yeah, Griot's leather care kit works awesomely on Leatherette too. Plus, it lasts a little longer than Vinylex.

I only do mine every 3-4 months.

It may start to look a little dull at that time but I would rather use less because it (and any other similar product) evaporates in the heat and then forms a film on the windows - worse when freshly applied. Try to avoid doing this in the hottest weather as that is when you get the most evaporation.
