: Keeping light colored leather clean

I want to avoid the light colored leather in my car getting the dreaded blue marking from Jeans.

Anyone use this?

BMW seats are plenty comfortable for long distance driving but I wonder if this will help avoid getting the blue marking.

If you are getting blue marks that means a few things:

1. You are NOT cleaning your leather often enough
2. You are not applying a conditioner often enough to the leather
3. You have a LOT of color bleeding from your jeans! Try using the shout color catcher when you wash your clothes

A great cleaner for these type of marks is a woolite solution (6 parts water, 1 part woolite)

Ultima makes an interior sealant (Ultima Interior Guard Plus ( It's safe on just about every surface in your car, including fabric. Protection usually lasts about 2 months. It may help prevent blue jean dye transfer onto your seats. The pad seems nice, but BMW seats are supposed to be some of the best in cars. The pad would reduce their impact.
