If you have leather seats, particularly lighter colours (i.e. white, beige, tan) staining and discolouring can be quite common.

Most leather today has a clear coat finish on the surface. This type of leather is called 'finished' leather. The benefit of having this clear finish on the leather is that it reduces maintenance and prevents damage to the leather hide. Protected by the clear finish, the hide is protected from everyday wear and tear including staining.
DO NOT attempt to clean leather that is hot - damage may occur! The car should be in the shade and the leather cool to the touch.Step 1
Hoover the seats thorougly then remove any dust from the leather with a damp cotton cloth. Using Einszett Plastic Deep Cleaner
, test the leather for colorfastness by spraying a hidden area. According to the product label directions, do not allow product to work for more than 3 minutes. Wipe the surface with a clean damp cloth. If there is no bleeding of the color, proceed to clean the leather surface. You might want to work on a few panels at a time rather than the whole seat.
Several applications might be required if the seats are particularly old or stained. After cleaning, remove any excess product by wiping area with a clean damp cloth. Rinse cloth under clear water if necessary and re-wipe.Step 2
Treat the surface with Einszett Leather Care
