    There are some weird dark patches and wondered what I can do to get rid of them?

    Have you not got the leather too wet? Would be worth letting them dry and see how they look in the morning

    No it’s like black staining.

    The seats were covered in like a stickie covering that I’m guessing was a protective covering someone had stuck on in the past.

    Sorry just to be clear.... were the stains present before you started cleaning or have they appeared after using the Pears soap?

    Well basically I think the thick sticky covering was concealing them. As the covering was removed the stains appeared. Il see how it looks in the morning.

    May need to be re-dyed to do it properly. Would have been nice to see what the seat looked like before.

    There are plenty of threads on here showing seats being refreshed with. It may come to that unfortunately

    I had the same when cleaning mine with Pears - it was a worn section of leather that had been dyed previously. It looked worse wet, once dried and re-dyed it was gone.
