Blue jean stains on leather seats: cleaning advice?
Noticed yesterday that the drivers seat is covered in blue denim rub-off/stains. The jeans I wore are old/washed at least 20 times--never had problems with dye on any other leather surfaces (sofa etc). I've googled and found similar reports on Lexus, Camry, Lincoln, etc forums and varied advice about how to treat the problem. Suggestions include steam cleaning, Leather wipes, Lexol cleaner, woolite and water, oxyclean, etc--lots of suggestions but little confirmation as to what actually does/ not work. I'll also be more careful about how I enter and exit the vehicle--I'm a bit short so I do sometimes slide in across the seat.
I've not yet conditioned or done anything to the seats--vehicle is 4 months old with 1200 miles.
I appreciate any tips that you have to share about how to remove the stains. I've been reading other posts on this site about products used for conditioning seats but I've not seen anything specifically about jean stains.
