Default Leather cleaning help!?

I was doing a mini detail on my Benz n noticed on my white leather driver seat, black scuff marks where my belt touches the back of the seat. Tried a McGuire leather cleaner and conditioner and it didnt do anything. How do I clean it?

Use a wet Magic Eraser LIGHTLY. It is somewhat abrasive so don't scrub. Also an All purpose cleaner can do the trick but you must do a test spot to make sure it doesn't take the coating or dye off your leather.

Used a soft bristled bore hair brush and agitate the leather with a gentle, water based cleaner.

Do a search for Leather Master, they may have a product specifically for this.

If it's been there awhile good luck.

Tuff Stuff and a soft brush works wonders cleaning white leather. Just make sure you condition the leather afterwards

We use a good citrus cleaner and horse hair brushes at the shop. Not sure what otc products work best to be honest with you, havent used them in so long now.. I sell the cleaner if you want to stop by the shop and get some.

I always use 409 to clean it and some leather conditioner after, just a regular soft rag will work

Leather Master Car Interior Strong Leather Cleaner, car leather cleaner, leather seats cleaner
Not what I was thinking of. They should call it Not So Strong. Just a mild cleaner. There should be a specific cleaner for transfer stains.

Try some of the other posted ideas, except for the Magic eraser.

I'm glad I saw this, I'll be cleaning some scuffs on my leather later on today.
