I get a lot of denin bleeding from my jeans and someone recommended I try Motsenbocker's Lift off to remove it. Anyone try it before and is it safe on the Lexus leather?

A review on Amazon claims it worked in a leather sofa, which may or may not have a similar coating as your car. For the price it's worth a try but test it on a small area that you can see the least.

I tried it in a small area and it is definitely cleaning it, but I worry it might be too harsh... take off any additional layers that are treated by the manufacturer.

Mix 5 parts water to one part Woolite. It works wonders on removing denim transfer from leather and is exceedingly gentle. See video below. He is very talkative and doesn't get to the point until about 8 minutes in.

I was originally going to do that, but have been told Woolite has since changed their formula and it's not the same thing as it used to be.

Yes. They have all sorts of formulations, but they still seem to work. Get the original formula. Or the cheap stuff from the dollar store.

Hey, I am sorry, I didn't mean to sound like I was attacking. I appreciate you sending the video. I actually purchased it, but haven't tried it on the leather yet, a bit nervous. I have used it other places and does work well.

I'm happy to help :-). You can test it on a small patch of scrap leather first before using it on your Lexus, similar to a skin allergy test to check for any reaction.
