Red spots on KT

I had my KT in a brown wool cover, which I think "sweated out" the dye onto the back of my KT. As you can see from the picture, the spots are dark red. But they also seem to have been absorbed because I can't remove them.

Before I use something stronger, has anybody seen something like this or know what can I use? I'm thinking alcohol but there might be something else I can use.



Thanks.

Never seen these particular spots, but plenty of cases have caused this kind of color transfer. I suggest trying to scrub it off with a bit of plain white toothpaste.

I have that on my K4S it wont come off completely. I'm afraid it's the cost of using a cheap cause and in my case (No pun intended) it was by Marware. Since then I will only buy the Amazon Official Case.

My DXG leather case costed $100. The brand logo now imprints on top part of the back (the plastic part). I call it "personalized" to make myself feel better.

I would try either propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin (I've used both). My daughter got permanent marker on her phone once, and the glycerin took it off. I was just careful to stop as soon as the marker was gone because I didn't know if it would start removing the paint....
