Dye transfer on white leather-ette material?

PipdogNovember 23, 2012

At our Thanksgiving celebration yesterday, my sister sat on our white pleather/leather-ette banquette with brand new brown leather pants. Unfortunately, the dye in her leather pants rubbed off and stained the banquette cushion. I didn't notice the stain until this morning, and I've tried everything on it...Magic Eraser, OxyClean, Windex, etc. and the stain is not budging. The stain is about the size of a small pillow. Does anyone have any tips on dye transfer on leather-ish material? Thanks!

Hi, I hope by now you were able to remove the dye. If not, have you tried rubbing alcohol?

Excess plasticizer meets poorly fixed dye.

Soap and water, hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol (isopropyl), denatured alcohol, paint thinner, naphtha.

Test in a hidden spot since some of the petroleum solvents can damage "pleather/leather-ette" depending on what it is made from (typically plastic).
