Steering wheel schmeg

So, I have owned BMW's since 1998 and never had this happen. I believe it to be related to our heat in Florida as my wifes Mazda has the same and I see it often at the dealership with cars we work on.

I assume it has to be dirt and oils but using a regular degreaser or leather cleaner has not done much for me.
The guys in the dealership detail shop tried a spot with one of those magic erasers and I almost macheted their head off b/c it looked like it was stripping the finish off the leather.

I have seen some posts on IG with products but I didn't need them at the time. Anyone have any product recommendations?
(Sorry for the fuzzy pic)

Clean the wheel with alcohol, restore the finish with these:

yea that magic eraser works like a fine abrasive sand paper. will make it shiny then then strip through everything as you continue. i hid them from everyone in my house who dont seem to understand how they work
