I've got an amazing fake leather couch set that has reclining chairs and a foldaway bed that's been sitting around unused for awhile in a storage warehouse. The problem is that the couch every so often will leave stains on the backs of shirts and sometimes pants. I've tried all-purpose cleaner and leather cleaner to minimal effect. Please help me with ideas!
Have you tried using Scotchgard? It's a cheap and easy way to tame the leather beast. Good luck.
This sounds like the leather had not been sealed properly. If this is the case a Good wipe down with a vinegar soaked cloth should seal the pores of the leather and thus prevent the curing agent from rubbing of. Also you may consider going to a store that sells scotchguard and try spraying that on it . Just an Idea... hope it helps!
If it is a fake leather, I'd clean it good with Armorall. You can buy it at the auto parts store. That should seal it and also clean off any extra dye.
Greg, I am having a similar problem, and was wondering if any of those solutions worked? Thanks a Bunch!
What's the difference between fake and real leather? (I'm terribly sorry for changing subjects, but it's a question I need to get off my chest)
Hi, for me, the problem is in reverse. I just bought an expensive pair of white jeans which I like very much, and it was stained in the wash by the leather name/brand emblem/tag on the waistband on the back of the jean.
Any suggestions to get this red/orange brown stain out of the jeans?
Fake leather is a type of vinyl so don't use leather products on it. Call a furniture store and see if they can help you. If you bought it new I'd ask them about a replacement. It shouldn't shed color.
