Buster asked: How do I remove tire marks from leather car seats. I have a convertible with a beige leather interior. I blew a tire a few nights back, and to get off the road, I threw the old tire with the rim into the back seat. I now have a circular pattern from that tire across the rear seat. I tried a commercial leather cleaner. I did not use it aggressively, as it was not working. I’m hesitant to use alcohol, but will if I have to. The stain is stubborn and looks weird. Thanks!
This unexpected solution provides fantastic results, even against tough stains like grease or oil that may rub off from used tires. Always spot test before you begin.
You Will Need:
- Kids N Pets Stain Remover
- Clean sponge
- Soft towel
- Leather conditioner
Steps to Remove the Stain:
- Begin by testing a small area to ensure that the stain remover does not affect the coloring of the leather. If no color is removed or damaged, it is safe to move onto the stained area.
- Wet the sponge with the Kids ‘N’ Pets Stain Remover. You want the sponge to be moist, but not soaking wet.
- Rub the stain with the wet sponge. Continue applying gentle pressure until the stain is removed.
- Rinse the sponge and repeat as needed.
- Dry the leather thoroughly with a towel.
- If needed, apply a leather conditioner.
Additional Tips and Advice
- Always check the colorfastness of the leather before you begin.
- Dry the leather as soon as possible. Prolonged exposure to moisture can ruin leather.
