Help wife spilled powdered makup on seats

My wife spilled powder makeup on my black leather seats. Wiped with a towel and water and looks slightly discolored. Is there anything I can do to restore ?

same thing happened to me when we were in the backseat -

use cleaner and conditioner - the discoloration is from the makeup getting into the leather - don't worry you didn't ruin the leather, yet

Skip the leather cleaner unless you already have some, most Over-the-counter ones are complete trash. Use a woolite mixed at a 15:1 ratio with water to get it off, or alternatively a gentle or diluted All-purpose cleaner. Again, skip any OTC leather conditioners as they are pretty much trash too. Wipe off throughly with a damp(water) towel afterwards then follow up with a dry one.

Good luck!

the shamwow mock shit that autozone sells works amazing for interior cleaning. I remember a dr pepper spilled all over my carpet, shit soaked it ALL up in one try. Does wonders on my girls make up, she gets her fucking paw prints all over the visor, seat extension, and hand rest on the passenger side. I deal with this every other day because the dumb bitch uses her fucking hands most of the times instead of a fucking brush to apply makeup. I feel like snapping her neck every time she gets in my car. FUCK.

F**k some of her old copies of Vogue in the bin, drink the last diet coke in the fridge, leave the lid off that humous sh1t that they eat so it goes off, stash the hair dryer under the bed, and absolutely definitely do not put the seat down on the crapper. When she eventually snaps you'll know how to make sure she doesn't do it again.
