Wanted to get away from black interiors after many years, so my wife ordered the wheat interior. Drivers seat already shows some blueing - from my jeans I'm told. :)

Any products that you recomend to address?

Thanks!

PS - Make that maintenance. Sigh.

This came up last year on the JX forum. I have the same problem with my car and you have to keep up on it especially if you are wearing blue jeans. I've been using a leather cleaner from Griots (Car Interior Detailing - Griot's Garage). I use a leather cleaner and leather protectant. They both seem to work well, but I think if you don't keep onto of it, it will be hard to get blue jeans color stains out completely.

There are a lot of of good commercial products out there, but I personally like Griots since their headquarters are in Tacoma. They offer detailing classes for free. They did tell me to really protect light colored leather early on rather than later.

I've always been into detailing, started just doing my dads car when I was around 14. Back when I learned about Griots Garage products, they were a much smaller company but always made decent products that come with a lifetime warranty. Now, all these years later, I really don't use their waxes/sealants because once I apply opticoat 2.0 from optimum polymer technologies, there isn't much else needed except weekly washings. But for interior car care, I still do like their products.

How I actually learned about them, wow, I just don't remember. They have been making a 'handbook' with their products since I've been using their stuff and I think I mailed away for one all that time ago, made an order, and since have always gotten their handbooks. I'll admit, sure you can find cheaper products from places like chemical guys but I'm happy with their products as well as their customer service so for interior stuff like leather cleaner, interior cleaner, speed shine, they keep my business.

just about any leather cleaner will work. ive used autoglym, chemical guys. i like them both.

you use woolite and water mix too. works just as well

optimum has a leather coating too
should look into it.

I got my qx60 on Saturday and on Friday my darn dog vomited on my leather seats. Life goes on and I cleaned it up. However, the leather seats have tiny circular perforations that I'm having the hardest time getting all the vomit / dirt, etc. out of. Any suggestions on ways to clean out these little circular areas on the leather seats? I was thinking toothbrush but wondered if it would be too harsh.

Thanks!

tooth brush is fine

it'll be tough though.. try spraying cleaner on. agitating with brush. and vacuuming it up.

just use a soft tooth brush. and dont scrub too hard.

That doesn't sound pretty at all. I'm gagging a little just thinking about it. If you want a properly sanitary job done, send it to the workshop to get the upholstery cleaned. Otherwise, perhaps a bit of vinegar to hydrate the upchuck and then a powerful vacuum to suck all that crap outta there. And perhaps a hazmat suit while you go at it too. Good luck mate.
