Oyster/Black Interior

I love my oyster black interior and I think it looks classy. That being said, wearing blue jeans leave a nice blue hue on my adored seats. I have been able to completely rid the blue from the leather with Meguires leather cleaner. Because my car is quite new, I am curious to know the long term outcome. Can I assume that this cleaner will continue to make my seats looking new for years to come?

Oyster and black is a great combo. If my wife or I happen to be wearing new/unfaded denim, we just throw a large hand towel over the seat bottom.

Meguiar's is a respected brand, and I use it to condition the leather in both our vehicles every three months.

Meguire's = good
Wash your jeans through a few cycles until it stops bleeding?

I also have the oyster leather and cant seem to get it clean. No matter how much I try to clean. Even the areas on the door panels is starting to get a little grimy. Any other suggestions out there? Does the leather have to be cleaned and then conditioned? I wasn't sure.

iIRC, the brush in my pic came from autogeek, but it is in fact, a dead ringer for the nail/cuticle brushes sold in most Walgreens/ CVS type stores.

Been using Zaino polishes for years. Just recently bought the leather care products. Quality stuff, as to be expected from this company.
