I have been looking at a way of bringing my 4 year old steering wheel up a bit.  This little brush may be a answer.  I have only briefly used it tonight but the wheel felt soft again.  I will likely still replace the wheel at some point, and I need to try it a bit more, but this seems a cheap option to bring the wheel up.  Its not a massive brush with mid stiff bristles.

Interesting Les. I find my Nismo wheel gets mucky and is quite difficult to bring back to life.

I have had the same situation, its loses its softness - I haven't driven the car yet I parked it and did the wheel - but it felt softer.  I have avoided chemicals so far - only using a damp microfibre and a dab of hand wash, but over the 4 years - it has started to feel less soft.  Almost flat to the touch.  This may well be a cheap fix to the problem, as I brushed a small amount of debris came off the wheel.

 

While the Nismo Wheel is great it loses its touch over time,

Ok, I had a go in daylight yesterday, it does definately make the wheel softer again, after 4 years its hard to remember what it felt like when I picked the car up.  You do need to gently rub the wheel with a microfibre as bits come off, not sure if they are warn bits of the wheel or just rubbish the wheel has accomulated.  But it definately seems to be the most effective way to clean it.

Definitely this little brush as done wonders.  It does seem to remove the old warn pieces from the Wheel - but if anyone saw DOYSOS with the touching episode with the Lancia they shaved the seats - so I can see why it would help.  Anyway it does fluff the wheel back up.  Best its felt in a long time
