Repairing damage done by Window Tint Installation on door leather

Question

After getting car windows tinted, upon coming home noticed large swirls in leather, can't get out. I tried using some non intrusive solutions such as Meguiar's Interior Detailer Cleaner and diluted degreaser on an inconspicuous spot with an applicator microfiber towel and another towel to wipe clean with no luck :(

When I asked them how they got the tint to stick, the woman mentioned they used water and diluted baby shampoo to get the tint to stick to the window. I have contacted the business in question already on Facebook. I wanted to give them a fair chance to fix their mistake and I told him I'd like to see their solution performed on the same inconspicuous spot I mentioned above because it's the smart thing to do anytime working with something destructive and because I'm already cautious on their workmanship and wanted a trial spot. After going down to the shop the owner put a huge glob of a leather cleaner on the whole door before I had time to say anything and doesn't dry clear but shiny.

 

When asking how long it'd take before it dried completely he said three months!

The picture quality from Adam's forum software doesn't help display how bad it is.

 

I'm asking for your help and expertise on how to properly return my doors to good shape. Is the 16oz bottle of Adam's Leather & Interior Cleaner appropriate?

Thats a great place to start. I'm always amazed at how clean everything is after i use it on a surface. You'll want to follow back up with Leather Conditioner.

I second this technique. The cockpit brush and leather and interior cleaner does amazing things. It effortlessly removed ball hitch grease from my plastic trim and leather. I would think it would cut through the baby oil without a problem. Wipe up any excess with a dry mf towel and apply leather conditioner.
