Transmission fluid on Charcol Leather?

    Long story how the stuff got on the leather, what I'd like to know about is how the leather can be affected by tranny fluid, and how to clean it up?

    As of now I used absorbant paper towels to remove what was sitting on top of the leather, but the leather has soaked alot of it up, and there is a darker tinge to it now.

    It's only the back seat where I don't really see it much, and one idea is to simply use some more tranny fluid to 'stain' the rest of the back seat?

    Then there's the worry of smell.....

    Get as much as you can first and then use a towel dipped in a mixture of Dawn and water.Afterwards be sure to use a good leather conditioner.

    Could use a toothbrush to scrub lightly - dont grind it in....


    I'd put the conditioner on several times in the next few weeks

    Use a solution of mild soap and water to first wash the leather. Next, use a high quality leather cleaner followed up by conditioner. I would try Lexol or Meguiar's.
