Balmforth of England (who might know a thing or two about leather grips) recommend using denatured alcohol to clean leather grips, and a light rubbing of castor oil to restore tack and softness. I've used these products and they work well. Some stuff to remember:

Don't use too much alcohol, or rub the alcohol too hard - it can parch the leather and cause chunks to come off the edges of the grips (or make them stretch or shrink, or come unglued).

Don't ingest the castor oil.
Psalm 100:4
