    what? But I can clean it safely and a lot of times there are filtration lines behind doors because ----- wait for it----- most other cleaners tell the customer they cant clean it safely and it will eventually ruin their carpet. Since I CAN clean it, are they gunna call any of the others back?

    Lots of new plastic furniture legs are leaving similar stains, even BEFORE cleaning.

    Edit: protect yourself. Pictures and tabs.

    We first ran into these in large student housing projects. Now this is more common with cheap institutional furniture.

    Labeled thus.

    I'd guess their suppliers cut corners, not knowing the staining potential of their plastic blend.

    Plasticizers are the ingredients that make plastics malleable or flexible. I've not seen this result from older domestic plastics.

    It's similar to the dry "crocking" that happens to fabrics and carpet, usually due to fugitive dyes or related issues. Crocking was a big issues on 70's carpet in bright deep colors installed adjacent to white carpets.
