    I have a 2016 IV touring edition. And it has the white and black interior and I’ve noticed that on my drivers white seat that has a slight blue tent to it and I’m assuming that’s from my jeans. I’ve used the recommended cleaning Klos that I supposed to be for that type of seat. But it doesn’t really do anything.
    And also I noticed that there’s one spot on the driver seat seems like it’s wearing it’s a small area probably 2 inches around at most and it’s war more so than the rest of the entire seat. I really like my seats but I’m trying to figure out how to make them last longer because I had leather in my GEN three Prius and then after about 100,000 miles the driver seat started cracking.

    Any tips or tricks to not only keep the seats white but to protect them better?

    Jeans "kill" car seats, especially white colored seats.
    My only for sure advise is to not wear denim.

    Many have complained on varied car forums about jean/ denim dye transfer.
    Yet, I never followed those threads closely.
    Try a 'net search and good luck.

    Can't really comment on your seat wear issue, other than commenting about denim a second time or wear from a pant's
    leather belt with your egress and ingress style.

    Sunlight bleaches out the blue dye from jeans. It takes a few hours.
