Lexol removing paint from leather seat? #5213883 09/15/19 10:49 PM

Today I started to clean the driver side leather seat of my 2011 DTS. I decided to use the Orange Lexol leather cleaner.


I shook the product, applied it to my cloth and began to rub it on the leather, when I looked at the cloth it looked darker than I thought.


Is this dirt coming off my seat or am I removing the black dye of the leather? I also tried using some home made APC which is dilluted ONR. That didn't make my cloth as black.

Hard to say for sure. I have noticed a brown tint on the cloth when buffing off Lexol *conditioner* on the Ivory leather seats in my Accord. Haven't used the product in years, not much of a fan.

It could also be grime and/or dye from jeans and pants.

I would say something other than leather dye. Grime would be my first thought.

Lexol always dried out my leather and made it chalky. Hate the stuff!

In the winter, I do wear jeans a lot. That would be relief if it’s just dirt!

Most likely just dirt/sweat/body oils and/or bluejeans dye. I have the same issue on the wife's Rogue with tan leather seats.
