Removing Dye Transfer from Faux Leather Coat?

A black leather/fabric dress transferred black dye to my long white faux leather coat. The tag says 100% polyester. I've tried vinegar, baking soda, Dawn, Tide, Carbona Stain Devils #2 and #8, but nothing works to remove the black stain. I could use any recommendations please.

You might try Magic Eraser but be sure to be very gentle as "scrubbing" might damage your coat.

I found the jacket on Posh, here is the description, it states polyurethane and polyester. Thank you for the links. I don't know if it worth continuing to buy more products to try to clean it. I already purchased saddle soap, etc.

What a shame - that looks like a really nice coat.
The label says washable so why not give that a try before giving up? Washing (never put in dryer) may remove the stain since you have applied some of the other solutions.

Hope something works but it does seem this type of material is prone to picking up colors from other items.
Just a comment: one of the products mentioned is really great for any kind of stain so it would not be money spent for just that mark on your coat.
Good luck and I hope something works.

As a last resort before you give up, I have had moderate luck with hair spray removing ink on cottons and cotton poly blends. Spray just a tiny bit in a corner/edge of the stain and see if it removes (or makes the stain lighter).

When using hairspray, lay the garment on a clean, dry surface (nothing porous, not the bed etc...but a hard surface like a ceramic kitchen counter or tile floor in the bathroom) (even the ceramic toilet top can work in a pinch).

Be sure that only the piece affected is getting wet with the spray. I learned the hard way that if you have the spot side and other side touching when the hair spray hits it and can transfer the stain to another place on the item OR another item...like a bed sheet (YIKES).

If you see it moving the stain, keep spraying more, blotting with a clean white hanky or other white cotton rag. Try not to rub as it makes it worse...blot to transfer the stain to the rag until it is all gone.

If it comes clean, wash in cold water after (in a regular load).

is it possible to have a seamstress redo the coat by cutting out the part with the stain and resewing the coat?

or is it possible to somehow intentionally create an artistic statement by having an artist (or doing it yourself) paint a cool flower design with fabric paint?

i know it's not the same thing but i recently ruined a dress with pen and will simply put a clever patch on the area

hopefully you can get it clean though

Thank you I will try hairspray, I had forgotten about that trick. Unfortunately the stain is all over the back, sides and arms. a total bust. RE: the 2 products that were mentioned in the earlier post, you or the other person said its a really good product for stains in general. Do you know which product is being referred to? there were 2 listed. Thanks for your input. Diana

Try a Magic Eraser

Thanks, I've now tried this:
Magic Eraser, Alcohol, Tide, Oxi Clean, Dawn, 2 stain removers, Hydrogen Peroxide, pretty much everything except paint thinners and bleach which will surely ruin it. I will probably just try to dye the entire coat black which I hate to do. :(

you can try putting nail polish (i used a clear top coat so there's no risk of staining from that), let it dry, then use nail polish remover to take it off. for me it didn't completely remove the stain but it took some of it off
