    I was adjusting my glovebox in my 458 with tan leather seats and As I was turning a small screw with some black grease on the threads dropped onto my leather seat as left a small black stain! As my fellow Ferrari owners are aware this is incredibly upsetting. I don’t want to dare attempt to clean it until I hear the expert opinions on the best way to clean and remove this stain. Advice is GREATLY appreciated! Here are photos

    Argh, so sorry about this! Definitely reach out to an upholstery shop. They may have some professional tools to remedy this versus homegrown methods. Look forward though to hearing remedies people share.

    Bug and tar remover. WD 40, Lexol leather cleaner, Goof Off, grease is not hard to remove from leather.

    Thank you

    G Techniq I2 is a fantastic leather cleaner. It worked for me on crema leather with blue ink stains as well as black jeans dye.
