Darn you Beige Interior!!

Hello everyone, I purchased an alpine white, 2013 328xi with beige leather interior. I just realized Im going to have a headache keeping this clean!! I looked at the drivers seat today and saw some denim "stain" on bottom and on the back part. Are there any tricks of the trade to keep this looking clean? what do I clean it with and is there a protectant good with bmw leather? I have had black leather/interior on 2 vehicles and have to say that the beige and black both have ups and downs to them. My problem would not be a problem on black leather, but the usual feet pedling from the last couple days of ice and wetness would have screwed the black interior. please let me know your experience or suggestions.

been there dont that with my old rx330 lol

try Blue Magic Leather/Vinyl Cleaner
http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Magic-800.../dp/B000BOC3LY
It'll take a few tries, but it should get it off.

Once you manage to get it off, use some decent protectant. Leather Master aint bad

Hope that helps

Also check out Ultima Interior Guard. A lot of autopians swear by it.

My '09 E90 was Alpine white with beige interior. Found myself cleaning the car on a weekly basis because it shows everything. A lot of work but worth it when it comes to showing it off. Current ride is black interior.

I had a beige interior once.....and only once. Good luck with it. Post up what you find in your quest to keep it clean.

for denim stain removal you can do this.

LM Super Remover --> LM Soft Cleaner --> and protect with LM Protection Cream

use this on every car that comes into the shop with denim stains and have had great success with them.

I also have a silver interior in my car and have had no issues with denim stains using this combo.

A few days ago, I got a white leather office chair from a neighbor. It had denim stains on the front edges. I tried everything I had in the house, it barely made a dent. Ultimately, I tried a 50/50 bleach-water mixture. Even that did not help. Although the stitching did get nice and white

Do you think the LM Super Remover will work, even where bleach has failed?
