Default Leather Maintenence Tips

Hey all... So a problem I found recently after ~6mos of owning this car is a slight black spot where I always put my elbow with my black jacket on when driving. I have no clue what material the jacket is made out of but it's rubbed off a nice huge black crater on my driver side arm rest. I already tried leather cleaner but it really hasn't come out. I don't want to bleach it or accidentally ruin it so does anyone have any tips that are leather friendly or know if i am permanently screwed? It's like a black hole on the car

I don't know what products you have tried or if any product can improve the appearance of the spot.

It is possible you have worn away the "Finish" or color of the leather.

Leather can be painted with excellent results including a perfect color match.

If all else fails, search for a professional who paints or restores leather.

I personally have used such an expert for a discoloration spot on my leather steering wheel. It has been four years since the repair and it still looks excellent today.

Oh, and get rid of that jacket!!

I used Lexol leather cleaner, brown bottle. Yeah it's weird, it's my winter jacket , actually happens to be y favorite one too, what a shame!



I hope it's not too much change to repair this little blotch; ill take a picture when I'm outside on my lunch break to show. It will definitely be worth the money to repair though.

Can I post pictures through tapatalk on my phone?

I use a Mr. Clean eraser to clean my leather. Be very careful because it will take off the leather. Get it wet,ring it out and use a little baby shampoo. You'll be amazed at how clean it gets. Just be careful!!

I have the same color interior,trust me it works. Just go easy and only use baby shampoo. Buy a couple of them,they dont last that long. It will pull out dirt you didnt even know was there.

I don't think the armrest is real leather.

Be very careful!!

You may be pulling out the color or dye of the fabric and think it is dirt.

We need to get @DarkDog's opinion on this subject.

This is very true. Ive done this 3 or 4 times and havent had an issue. I was told as long as you use something like baby shampoo you should be fine.


EDIT: BTW this isnt some thing that I just came up with or even read about. I got the info from the place I buy all my detailing supplies. To be honest this guy knows his shit and I trust him.

Using a magic eraser, followed by a conditioner, is a good idea if the black dye has transferred from your jacket to the armrest (which is vinyl, not genuine leather).

You're already using Lexol.. Just need to pick up some Vinylex next (same company, just formulated for vinyl). Those are the products I use at my shop, and the only ones I truly recommend.

If you've actually worn through the top coat, and stripped the color, your only option is to have it repaired/dyed. If that's the case, find a professional. DIY leather/vinyl repair kits are a joke, but a good repair pro should be able to fill it, regrain his repair (so you don't end up with a flat spot) and spray it to match. If done properly, you'll shouldn't be able to tell that it's been done at all.

Very cool. I don't know how much damage i've done yet but this gives me more than enough info to go off, thank you. Hope this helps any other 6thgen member who may have leather/vinyl damage.

I'm gonna try this today... Wish me luck lol. Do I have to apply a lot of pressure? Put the baby shampoo on the surface or the clean pad?

Take it to a car wash and have them detail the seats. If it didn't come out, you'll know your only other option is to replace the leather on that seat alone.

Somebody told me yesterday it's just cheap painted vinyl and his speculation was that black is the base color. I'm not sure if that's true for the beige interior. I tried everything nothing works

That's what I was talking about when I said that you may have worn through the topcoat. Your only real option is to have it dyed back. If done properly, it'll last, but you need to bring it to a Pro.
