Angry White Thread Stitching ... BIG Mistake!

Posted part of this way down on another thread (no pun intended) but the use of white or very light colored contrast thread stitching drives me NUTS! For any of you who have ever had light colored cloth seats you know they can get real dirty, real quick in high traffic areas ... then look like crap! The white or very light stitching will be the same, only extremely hard to clean. So you'll have bright white were there is no wear/traffic, and grungy dirty stitching were everyone's butt slides across or coffee spills.

Re: White Thread Stitching ... BIG Mistake!

Maybe there's a product out there that will whiten the stitching easily?

Re: White Thread Stitching ... BIG Mistake!

I can't stand the white stitching in any vehicle. It makes it look like a pair of cheap shoes.

Re: White Thread Stitching ... BIG Mistake!

I've never had a problem before, and can't wait until I put enough aside for my Katzkins.

LOL People have been complaining about the white colored piping in the Indigo/brown interior, and saying how dirty it will get. I've had white stitching before and have never gotten it dirty. It just makes me wonder, how filthy are some of these people when they get in their Jeeps lol.
