Interior stain

I was using the Porsche leather cleaner/conditioner and didn't realize I stained the interior door panel with it. Now I can't seem to get the stain off of it. I used dish detergent and water but that didn't do anything. Does anyone have anything to recommend ?

thanks,

Dave

Could you have rubbed the color off instead of staining it?

No i would've known if that was the case. It looked like a spill over liquid and it dried up. Almost like a milk stain.

Weird.

I would try Lexol cleaner followed by Lexol conditioner. I don't use the Porsche products so I can't speculate on why this would happen.

BTW-if the stain in on the vinyl finish, Lexol makes a cleaner for that material also.

Good Luck!

I got some chewing gum that someone droped on one of the seats. The problem was her friend sat on the gum and got it all over the seat. THe next morning it was like cement. I used the 1Z (Einzett) and a microfiber cloth and it rubbed out after about an hour.
