need leather help ASAP

alright so tomorrow the temperature is going to hit a warm 47 degrees and i NEED to wash my e92. its been a month (maybe more) since its last wash. inside, the leather is bad. ive got coral red leather and the drivers seat (pretty much the entire bottom) is stained from my jeans. and compared to the passenger seat, its an ugly red almost maroon

i dont have time to order anything online so im looking for OTC products. i know my nearest autozone sells Lexol cleaner and conditioner. will that clean the jean stains out? are there any other OTC products that are good enough?

ive searched multiple topics but cant find the right help. they all mention leatherique. thanks!

the one product we sell that can handle jean dye transfer would be

Leather Master Super Remover followed by Leather Master Soft Cleaner and finally protect with Leather Master Vital or Protection Cream.

I don't know of any over the counter product that will work for denim transfer.

Some people on here have had luck with a Mr. Clean magic eraser for denim stains. Use Lexol cleaner and wipe it over the stains with the eraser. Be careful with it and don't scrub.

This foam product is manufactured in Germany by BASF under the name Basotect. Use caution if using Magic Eraser (it contains abrasives) on leather as it has been found to damage the surface of pigmented and covered leather, which may require replacement.
