Magic eraser

Question

I used the magic eraser on my leather steering wheel and it kind of left behind some funky looking marks. Are the erasers safe for leather because the ones Adam’s sell look like the same thing as the magic eraser

Can you post a pic of the issue?  How old is the leather on the steering wheel?  What other products have been used on it?

The Deep Clean Eraser can be used on leather, but like any cleaner or tool, using it too much or too vigorously can cause an appearance issue.

The warning on the package and the website states: Please note that the Deep Clean Eraser is abrasive. If used too vigorously on leather surfaces, there is a potential of wearing through the protective coating found on most modern factory leather surfaces. Adam's Deep Clean Eraser is not intended for use on suede or Alcantara surfaces.

I've said this over and over and over again.  DO NOT USE MAGIC ERASER ON YOUR CAR'S LEATHER OR INTERIOR!  It does exactly what  you got.  Streaks and leaves residue. And it will remove color as well.  I know from experience.

😩😩. I’ve only used it twice on my wheel but it does look like it’s removing a layer of the leather so no more of that for me. Anybody suggest a fix for it?

It does look like the coating on the leather has been worn away.  Does it look like that all around the wheel?  How old is the car, what is the mileage?  From that pic, it looks like the area is where your hand would normally be, and there may have been some wear from use, and the eraser may have worn it through faster than the other areas on the wheel.

An upholstery repair shop can re-dye the worn areas, and apply a coating.

How old is the car and is it still under warranty from the factory? If yes don’t tell them what you did and have it repaired and if is not you need to find someone in your area the does automotive leather dying to have this fixed.

You should use a leather sealant on this to help keeping this at bay so it doesn’t get worse.
