^This the color of your interior?

Just clean with a leather protectant (make sure its silicone free) and be careful. I am not sure if you can scotch guard the seats that may be an option. When we had tan leather in our TL it was never really an issue since we never ate in the car or had dirty clothes. And when we took it to the mechanic we covered the seat, steering wheel, shifter, etc with bags so grease wouldnt soil the interior.

Yeah it could be, I do know blue jeans temporarily stain leather. When I wore jeans in the TL it had a tinge of blue but wiped off easily since the leather was protected.

I think when the leather is properly conditioned and kept clean, it tends to stay clean. Since your interior is not black or grey, its gonna be more obvious but the same care is required for black interior too...its just not readily seen.

I googled 3M scotch guard leather and yep, thats definitely an option.

Don't use scotch guard on leather it's for cloth upholstery. Just use leather cleaner and condition the leather spring and fall.
