Re: Blue jeans seem to be staining leather seats

Same problem here. I'd just keep up with cleaning it. Comes with the territory of light interior I guess?
Or wear khakis.

Re: Blue jeans seem to be staining leather seats

Same thing happened recently on our passenger seat when the wife wore a brand new pair of jeans.
Still need to clean it.

Anyone know if Lexol or other conditioners/treatments will make the leather more resistant to this?

That stuff works exceedingly well. When I sold my wife's cx-9 the light tan seat was basically blue. It cured the problem....well about 95% cured. I'll see if I can dig up some pics......

Re: Blue jeans seem to be staining leather seats

Magic Eraser will take all the stains and discoloration out. Just wipe lightly and it'll be all gone for $2

True, but I wonder if the magic eraser is too abrasive for the leather. Over some time, it may wear the leather out.

Re: Blue jeans seem to be staining leather seats

I've done it on all my light colored leather. (CLK500, Tahoe, G37) never had a problem. I do not rub real hard at all, because I was worried about that at first. It really only take a very light wipe and the dirt and stains are gone. Never had any problems with the leather getting worn out or show signs of splinters.
