Pale Adobe leather dye transfer

What are you guys with the pale adobe interior using to clean the leather seats? I had dye transfer from a belt to the seat and cannot budge it. I've used Lexol cleaner and conditioner with no visible result.

I've read about using a Magic Eraser but don't want to go to that extreme.

Any ideas? Seems to really be set into the surface.

I am interested in this as well. My seats have dye transfer too. I've only tried the cleaner/conditioner that came with my warranty protection plan with negative results.

The product I bought did not work. It may have lightened it up a tiny bit but nothing to be happy about. I'm afraid to do anything else for fear of damaging the leather. The product has a strong smell of rubbing alcohol which can't be too good for leather.

Guess it's just a fact of life with light colored leather and dye transfer. Doubt I would get another light colored leather interior.

I had the same issue with another vehicle I owned and tried all sorts of things to clean it but was never able to get it to do anything but lighten a little. The seat was still like that when I traded it off. If you aren't doing so, it is a good idea to use some good leather conditioner on the seat after you clean it - especially after using something with an alcohol smell.

Yeah I'm always using something like Lexol conditioner to protect the leather. Hard to believe it is so difficult to remove that transfer.

Well on second thought maybe this stuff did work after all. Either it faded over night or the lighting in my garage made it look like it was still there. Here's an after pic from a few minutes ago...




I didn't focus too much on the perforated part as the cleaning solution trends to soak into the holes and soaks the underside. But if you look at the bolster the dye stain is almost gone.

Maybe another application may totally remove it.

I know I will never buy another light colored interior. I only got it this time because it was coming to the end of the 13 model year, it had every other option I was looking for and I got a good deal. I think custom fit seat covers are going to be in the works soon. But thanks for the follow up OP.

I used the magic eraser, (the one with Mr. Clean on it) and it worked great. There were some marks from my jeans on the seat bottom bolsters, and I was surprised how easily it came up. I've now put some seat covers over them so I don't have to worry about it

I've always taken a leather conditioner and micro fiber clothes and rubbed the hell out of it and I've always had good results, but It's more of a maintenance thing. I always do it when I wash the truck.

My wife's Lexus IS250 has the same interior and her seats are pretty much flawless especially after owning it for 6 years already and again that's because everytime I wash her car I clean the seats.

Maintenance is key....of course if you have time to do so.
