I've been impressed w/ ability of oxy-clean to remove stains, but can't say I've tried on this type of stain. It may fade w/ time as do the jeans colors. A good Lesson Learned.

good luck

I had a 2001 Blazer with Tan interior. My black leather belt and jeans left stains on the leather. I was not able to remove it.

This is exactly the reason I only buy black leather interiors.

Good luck. I hope you find something to remove it. My 2001 was a lease so I didn't care or try too hard.

I had the same experience with my 94 4runner with tan leather interior. Only black for me from now on.

I used Color Coat to cover the stains in my previous X...had decent results...I had really bad wear in the non-Sport seats.

Do you have a good upholstery shop in your area? They might be able to help.

I have had good success with a mild cleaner (soapy water or sprayway window cleaner) and a Mr. Clean magic eraser. Got off crayon and some other mystery stains. You might test that in an area that is not visible first just to be sure it doesn't do anything to the color of the leather.

Be careful with the Magic Eraser! It's an abrasive and is taking off the coating on the leather!

Jean stains are hard to remove however it can be done. I've used leatherique on my leather and it's gotten those jean and belt stains out easily. The longer they stay there, the harder it is to remove!

Here is a write up by todd @ 2008 Lexus LS460L – Detailed Image

that highlights the use of leatherique to remove some stains, but they don't go away completely as the leather is really worn in that Lexus.

Easy! I use Armor all cleaning wipes. Then I wipe up all remaining moisture with towel and apply a good leather conditioner afterward.
