i alwasy get these wipes from the auto section of kmart they are some cheapo brand all purpose cleaner wipes... they are safe on leather and plastic and stuff.. i have never found a stain that it wouldnt take off the leather..
Mine looked kinda like that and I used some leather cleaner stuff that came with the new couch my mom bought and it worked pretty damn good. It required a lot of elbow grease though.
PS. You must have a oily arm
the tide and hot water did the trick! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif to blackie http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif and no, that nastiness wasnt from my arm (i hope!), it's been like that since i got the car about a year and a half ago.... i wish that dirty armrests were the only things i needed to worry about
Go to a furniture store and buy a leather cleaning kit made by "Leather Masters" it comes with cleaner, conditioner ect... i used to work in leather repair at a furniture store and thats what we used!
1 more note, you dont "dye" leather again! They might tell you that they "dye" it but, its actually a paint that you spray or wipe on! Just clean it really good, its hard to actually take the color out of leather, that only happens after you scrub it for about 5 hours!
..yeah i used meguirs conditioner, you have to use all over cause it leaves a shean, and if you jsut do a little spot it stand s out, but it took accrylic paint and water color solvent of my front seat( art school accident)
