Unhappy Sepia leather problem

Hi, I have my car 2014 SRT with Sepia leather and I am very disappointed with the quality as the leather on the driver side start to change to be black in the back side and in the edge of the seat. I have never user dirty clothe but the seat color start to be black. I try to clean it but I am not able to remove the black color? Is there are any way to clean it? any one has same issue?

Re: Sepia leather problem

Is it becoming black on the high points, or in the grooves? Maybe a photo???

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Sepia leather problem

No issues like that since October 2013. 45,000 miles.
Starting to wear a little like a baseball glove but still beautiful!

Re: Sepia leather problem

Some leathers and some dyes don't seem to get along. I have the same issue with my current vehicle. I'm wearing the same jeans that I had no issue with with my Jeep leather. Time to buy new jeans ... in the same color as your interior.

Re: Sepia leather problem

You'd want to check somewhere inconspicuous first before trying this, but there is a laundry product designed to remove colour runs from clothing... like what you would get of you washed the wrong things together. One brand is Dylon Run Remover.

Otherwise, I'd be going to some high end leather lounge specialists for advice. You definitely want your first attempt to be successful, because if not it can set the colour and make it impossible to remove.

Cheers,
Steve

What you have there is your typical case of dye transfer from clothing. I am an interior specialist and have been dying and repairing leather seats for the past 18 years...I also fix burn holes, cracks in dash's, cuts on vinyl trim panels, etc. Unfortunately there is no rythme or reason to what leathers will or won't do it, and what clothes dyes they will react to. 9 times out of 10 the only remedy is to dedye the stained area with the original seat color and you are still prone to it happening again if you wear the same clothing. If you take it to a dealer...first they will try to clean it off..most likely rubbing the area to long with a harsh chemical only to find out they will start taking off the original seat dye yet the stains won't lighten. Then they will call a vendor such as myself to come in and dedye the seat to make it look perfect again..but will warn you unless you find out what's staining it...It wont come back thru but will stain the surface of the fresh dye again eventually. Biggest contributor to this type of dye transfer is using heated seats while wearing damp clothes..for instance hopping in the truck after walking to the car in the rain, etc and then using the heated seat will tend to draw the color out of your clothes. Also judging from your pics..it's the backrest so not an issue with jeans or pants that you are wearing..but instead a shirt or jacket maybe?? Hope that helps.
