-   -   Bad Stain on upholstery (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=585785)

I have a really deep stain in one of my seats. Actually I left a mardi gras bead on it and the dye ran off and onto the seat. I ave nothing around the house that will even put a dent into it. I have heard great things of magic eraser I think its called. Anything else out there ran into a similar problem and what is the best thing on the market to get this out????

You will probably have to get it died.

The best thing would be a razor and some new upholstery.

You'll have to scrub to hard on that dye spot I wouldn't use the magic eraser on it. Especially if it's the textured part of the seat.

Magic eraser works great but can take some of the upholstery off with it if you scrub too hard....which you would need to do.

The reason I said you may have to have it died is because something similar happened to me. The only difference was it was a pink glossy streamer that got wet and was on the seat. The color bled and I tried everything and finally had to have it died. Good luck.

ericlee 06-01-2008 4:09 PM

Where do you get something like that died if I have to? WHat did it run you?

future 06-01-2008 8:03 PM

It cost me like 90 bucks and my dealer had a guy do it. He just did the whole cushion...looks brand new so it will take a couple months for it to look like the others.

Use bleach, but keep it away from the seams and rinse off thoroughly, and then leave it in the sun for about a week.

Not much to add except my similar experience. I stained the seat with freakin INK this weekend! The plastic bags the cheap ass CGA (mandatory orange eyesore) vests came in were wet so I set them out. The ink leeched off the bag and into the vinyl. I tried all kinds of stuff and resorted to the fact "#@!$" happens and let it sit in the sun. My wife saw the stains the next day "What the hell is that!" my shoulders slumped down head hung and I replied "I know." Her next comment was "Do you understand how mad you'd be if I did this?" I stood there speechless. She really put things in perspective for me. Granted I beat myself up pretty good. It will fade in the sun. Hope yours does too.

dye, dyed, dyeing.... DIED ?

sorry about the spelling

try 10% benzoil peroxide, buy a product with it in it ( think acne medication) and dap a little on, leave it out in the sun for 30 min. it should take it away. dont; get it on the stiching. I use a q tip to apply it.

ericlee 06-02-2008 1:35 PM

The stain is not close to any stitching. Sam will that really work? I will definately do it but wanna make sure that will really work and not just a suggestion ya know. do you use a q tip and rub it in then wash it off after half hour in sun?

wake1823 06-02-2008 2:07 PM

I used it on permanent marker, got it right out...my dad is a chemist, he gave me the idea. use the q tip and just dap it on top of the stain, no rubbing, the chemical will do its work. I wiped what I could up with a towel then rinsed with fresh water and put a little 303 on just cause. chek on it every 15 min in brite sun..it will slowly fade out.

ericlee 06-02-2008 3:51 PM

Any info on a name of a product I can get at like wal-mart so I dont have to look at a ton of products for that ingredient?

thesack 06-02-2008 3:57 PM

Try like 409 and acetone. Just try them both in an area that no one will notice first just in case.

jmanolinsky 06-03-2008 6:21 AM

Eric, <BR> <BR>Just ask the pharmacist at Wallyworld. There are a bunch of acne products that contain 10% BP. Some will even say so right on the front of the package. <BR> <BR>Jman

The previous owner of my boat left a tire leaning against the port side wall upholstry during the Heat of Texas. The black from the tire transferred to the white vinyl. In fact you could clearly read the Tire size on my vinyl. I tried every cleaner and could not get it out. Not even close!. My local Supra Dealer had an upholstry guy that basically painted/dyed over the stain and it matches the upholstry so well that you can not tell. Best $30 I ever spent.

ericlee 06-05-2008 5:41 PM

so, I tried the 10 percent benzoil peroxide and it did not work. I applied it and left it in the sun for a good half hour and rubbed it off and the stain did not come with it...<IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" ALT=":-(" BORDER=0>...any other ideas?

mastercraft7100 06-05-2008 8:27 PM

Just keep on riding, the sun will fade it out. Give it about a 2 to 3 weeks of riding the sun. <BR>I had the same thing happen to my boat after a weekend of partying.

jmanolinsky 06-05-2008 8:33 PM

Eric, <BR> <BR>I know that you just got your boat and don't like looking at the stain, but maybe just give it a little while as stated above. Then, if after a while it still doesn't go away, then try some more desperate measures. <BR> <BR>Good luck, <BR> <BR>Jman

jmanolinsky 06-05-2008 8:42 PM

Eric, <BR> <BR>What is the color of the vinyl? If it is white, spray it with Westley's Bleach White, wait a couple of minutes, then scrub with a brush and rinse thoroughly. You can find it at most automotive stores or even Walmart. It is a great product intended for use on tires, but it works great on lots of things. It will make a dirty cooler look like new again. I used it exclusively on the interior on my previous boat and it still looked good after 12 years. I'm not recommending it for everyday use. I'm just telling you my experience with the product. <BR> <BR>Jman
