    Default Jean Dye Transfer on 2014 Jeep Seats

    Could someone tell me which products to get in order to clean blue jean dye from my seats? I've read about some products on other posts, but I want to make sure I get everything I need on my first purchase.

    The first try is using Prep-7.7 using a ‘reverse transfer’ technique with Towel-T5. Once the stain is suspended it will be absorbed by the more absorbent towel and peel off clean. The sticky residue is removed with Clean-3.8 and pH balanced and rinse with Rinse-3.0.

    To ensure you get everything on your first purchase, I will recommend that have this Kit-Ap7.di from this link:

    Leather Doctor® Kit-Ap7.di, auto pigmented / perforated leather dye and ink remover kit is an innovative concept of removing blue jeans dye and ink stains featuring a “reverse transfer” technique utilizing a paper towel over the dwelling Prep-7.7. Prep-7.7. It works by penetrating, lubricating and suspending the stains on dwell time and the paper towel reverse absorb the stain instantaneously from the leather. Prior failed attempt with set-in stains may require the help of Bleach-9.9 as booster to the Prep-7.7 to remove the residual stains. Clean sticky residue with Clean-3.8, rinsed with Rinse-3.0 and pH balanced with Acidifier-2.0 when Bleach-9.9 is cooperated. Hydrator-3.3 relaxes stiff leathers prior to fat and oil replenishing. Fatliquor-5.0 rejuvenates the leather structure with softness and suppleness when dry. MicroTop-54M is an option for renewing the finish from friction wear. Protector-B imparts a non-stick rub-resistant protection with a buttery feel that shield against sticky soiling and reduce friction noises.

    2. Test it on the worst stain area and inspect every 24 hours with fresh application until the stain is gone.
    3. Observe if there is sign of stain removal, if it does, the stain will eventually be remove with repeat application.
    4. To secure the test patch from dislodging wrapped it over with see throughcling wrap.
    5. When stain is removed with satisfaction, clean off the sticky residue with Clean-3.8 follows with Rinse-3.0 until a
    squeaky-feel.
    6. The lack of a healthy squeaky feel may be the result of worn out topcoat, reapplication with MicroTop-54M is
    recommended.
    7. Apply a soak out paper towel with Acidifier-2.0 over the area until dry to strengthen the finish prior to topcoat application.
    8. When test after 72 hours shows poor response, Bleach-9.9 may be used to boost the Prep-7.7.

    1. A mixing ratio guide by weight is 1 part Bleach-9.9: 2 parts Prep-7.7: 2 parts Hot water.

    into a paste.

    I used the test paper and Prep-7.7 on the darkest part of the stain. After nearly 48 hours, the dye seemed to start loosening. However, it also appears that the leather is peeling away. I can't tell if the dye is being pulled out, if the stained layers of the leather are coming off, or both. Does this look normal? Even though the stain is lightening, I'm scared to address any other areas so far.

    >>> Does this look normal?

    Any high friction or rub areas may have existing coating wear or weakening that becomes exaggerated is a common issue. Even without removing the unwanted stains, it will sooner or later wear through to the leather crust. Option is to have it matched color touch-up or refinished thereafter.

    Removing on healthier areas should not have any of this finishes damages issues, as ‘mechanical’ force is only limit to soft horsehair Brush-1 agitation.

    I understand that sooner or later, the leather will eventually erode down, but I would rather not make that sooner with the use of the Prep-7.7. Does that look like what happened -- this particular area wasn't healthy enough to handle the product? I don't want to make a problem even worse by trying to fix it.

    I would think so, you may want to have a better resolution to confirm, normally the leather crust would have a darker shade.
