Blue coming off M Performance Steering Wheel

I suppose a damp microfiber cloth was just too much for cleaning the blue section of the steering wheel. I didn't think I was applying that much pressure. My immediate reaction was to ask for a replacement under warranty...I think I paid nearly $2,000 for it when I bought the car. But if it's a simple fix I'd rather just know what to do so I can handle it in the future should I again use my super human strength whilst wiping the interior.

Worth noting this happened to me on the black part of the steering wheel. There is a section that is noticeably lighter because the dye has been coming up when cleaning. It's not even a point that I touch that often because I don't drive around gangsta style.

Wow, not good. You were just using water? I just installed mine a couple of days back and want to know what NOT to do. If waters not safe I can’t imagine what the hell is.
