Charger SRT-8 That thing got a Hemi? Indeed, a 6.1L Hemi that is. The Dodge Charger SRT-8 pounds the pavement with severe power.

Default remove sunscreen stains from leather seats

I have a question for all the experts here... I have a Magnum SRT 8 with the leather seats and also live in hot as Hades Las Vegas. Well in the summer when I loaded the kids in the car every day -- they had sunscreen on their fragile little hides and consequently they left sunscreen stains/presents on my gorgeous new seats.

I've tried cleaning it myself, and also had a mobile detail guy try to clean it with no luck. Any ideas? I thought I would try Meguir's leather cleaner, but I just wanted to as first, before i ruin (further ruin?) my seats. It appears to be only on the leather portion, like a milky white stain and not on the "preferred suede" which I know from reading the posts for the last 2 hours is a microfiber material, not a true sude.

Any help is greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.

Woody.

Default RE: remove sunscreen stains from leather seats

Well I went ahead, damn the torpedos, and used Meguires Leather cleaner and conditioner. It seemed to work for most of the main stains. It looks like 90% of the worst stains were taken care of and the lesser ones are gone. I'll see if there is any difference in a day or so, as I know that natural materials tend to "soak" in whatever is appplied to them and it may look different tomorrow.

Any future advice is appreciated.

Woody.

Default Happened to me also

I had similar problems with an Chrysler 300 I had once. Leather seats got nuked by sunscreen. I asked the service manager at my local Chrysler dealer (Kayser) and he said you need to do two things: 1) try and remove the sunscreen oil as best you can and then 2) recoat the leather with a good conditioner to mask the remaining sunscreen oil. I did both and it worked pretty well. It even got better with time.
