My Outback has the ivory leather and the left thigh bolster (the bolsters are vinyl iirc) on my driver's seat is turning blue. I wear jeans every day to work but this seems really odd and the car is only 8 months old...

This only seems to be happening on the left side thigh bolster, the back bolster, center and right of the seat is fine.

Is anyone else seeing this?

Wash your Jeans the die is rubbing off on the seats. Well known for all cars having this minor clothing issue. Wiping the seats down with a very basic seat conditioner will remove it in most cases.

Had the same trouble with my '08 Legacy with leather interior. As SubieSailor mentioned, a good leather cleaner will remove it. I found that treating the seats every few months with a good conditioner/protecter will help minimize this.

Had a 77 Ford once with very light interior. The driver's seat was blue from my jeans. Nothing removed the blue short of a blow torch and/or sulfuric acid.:gasp::17:

Happens all the time on many differtn makes and models... It s as simple as the dye coming off your jeans in areas that have the most rubbing. Just keep that part of the seat clean often as stated.

I have not noticed any blue on my leather. My jeans are not very blue. One might try caucously using a light solution of oxyclean And a little soap. Wet it and blow dry.
Try small area first.
