Has anyone had success with Magic Eraser and a tan leather inside a car? I love the Magic Eraser for everything else, but cautious to use it on leather. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

Thanks for all the responses! I'm going to avoid the magic eraser and try some of the other suggestions. Most thought it was a bad idea and some had actually tried it with adverse effects! UGH! We don't want that.
Thanks again,

I just used extra sensitive baby wipes on my leather chairs with the greatest success. I was shocked because I had tried so many other leather cleaners and suggested concotions with no results.
Good Luck!

I have had 2 mini-vans in 7 yrs, and kept the leather clean with baby wipes! Yes, baby wipes. I use the unscented kind. I just keep them in my car, and they clean up any spills my kids make.

Sometimes they leave a film, so after you use the wipe, you can wipe it again with a damp clean white paper towel.

I have a leather interior on my van and I would not use anything except special leather cleaning items on it that will clean and keep it moist and soft and safe from sun and heat. I think my husband would kick my behind if I even suggested using a Magic Eraser on our leather seats, lol. That stuff can strip paints off walls, lol!

HI M., although I have never used a magic eraser on a leather car interior, I have used it on leather jazz shoes, tap shoes, walls, metal doors, wookwork and just about everything in my house with amazing results. Try a small area that is un-noticable really should work well.

try it on an inconspicuous area first (under the seat)

You can also try those blue micro fiber towels that you get at Sam's club they are very good at getting things clean

I, too, am a HUGE fan of the Magic Eraser! If I were you, I would try it on an inconspicuous spot first to see what happens.
