Hey All, I have a 2019 Tesla Model S (I posted in the Model 3 forum because there's way more users here and the seats should be the same :)) with white seats. I ceramic coated them with Gyeon Q2 Leather Shield about a month ago, but when I looked at the seats a couple days ago, I noticed this weird stain on both the bottom cushion AND the lower back cushion (ruling out jean dye):

It did recently rain here, but I can't figure out what could've caused this and/or how to remove it (baby wipes did not work). If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks!

My wife’s white seats are ruined from dye transfer (black yoga pants did it). I can confirm ceramic coating doesn’t stop it from happening either. I think very frequent cleaning is the only answer and avoiding wet pants.

Interesting, since I only used the Gyeon ceramic coating BECAUSE people were saying how well it prevented jean dye transfer lol

I'm pretty sure my stain isn't jean dye transfer, though, because it's on both the bottom seat cushion and the back seat cushion so it's something that came from my shirt/jacket and pants

Ceramic coating the seats does not prevent dye transfer, it helps keep then clean and helps with cleaning them. My seats are still like new but then again, I never wear jeans, only Eddie Bauer chinos

Yeah, but this is 100% not jean dye. Notice how it's on the bottom seat cushion AND the lower back seat cushion. I'm still baffled as to what it came from

You don't find this stuff too harsh?
Nope, have been using the same products for 4 years, seats still look like new
To temper expectations I used the same products in my wife's car and they didn't lift transfer stains. Some things just don't come out.

I tried Gyeon Leather Cleaner - didn't do anything. Ordering the 3D Degreaser and LVP now.
I can save you some money. I have literally tried every product. They don't lift transfer stains that are locked in.

I now use Gyeon Mild Leather Cleaner very regularly to curb it before it happens.
