Best way to clean fabric seats in car?

I'm getting ready to sell one of our cars and can't help but notice the seats are a little dirty and in need of a spring cleaning before people come look at it. I thought of going to the local DIY carwash and using the shampoo cleaner but I really need to clean the entire driver and passenger seats and I don't think that will work very well. Just wondering if anyone has tried anything that works well.. Thanks.

If you have a carpet cleaner (bissell etc.) they usually have an attachment that allows for using it on the seats. Worked pretty good the one time I used it.

TSP, but it might make your hotstamps come off. And it will disolve your seats if they are made by ASM.

Steam, then a little carpet/fabric cleaner (hand brushed) if needed, followed by vacuum and a shot of Fabreze, or however the hell you spell it!

Re: Best way to clean fabric seats in car?

I take mine to the full service car wash. Every spring they run specials. It's about $50 for the service, but they do a really nice job and I'm really, REALLY lazy so it's worth it.

Re: Best way to clean fabric seats in car?

Blue Coral "Dri Clean" - you can find it at any automotive store or Wal-Mart.

A couple hints for using it: Ignore whatever their actual directions are and ignore the big blue brush-y thing on the top of the can.

You'll need the Dri Clean, a small bucket of warm water, a brush, some towels and a Shop Vac.

1. Spray the entire seat with Dri-Clean (you'll be brushing and spreading it around, so you don't literally need to cover the entire seat... but don't be stingy). Make sure you get a fair amount on any heavily soiled areas or stains.

2. Let it soak in for five minutes or so.

3. Dip your brush in the warm water, shake out excess water, go to town scrubbing seats. Every so often, dip brush back in water to clean out dirt and grime you've picked up. Keep scrubbing. (Depending on the amount of soil, the scrubbing can take anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes.)

4. When you're satisfied with the scrubbing, take a clean town and scrub/dry the seats with this. This will pick up more dirt and excess moisture from the brush.

5. Let the seat dry (again, this varies depending on how much water got on there).

6. Take the shop vac (or head to the local car wash that has vacuums available) and vacuum any remaining particles.

**Yes, it takes some elbow grease. But I learned this while working with my brother at his car detailing business - and it works great and smells good (not overpowering or flowery). This technique will also work on the floor mats as well as spot cleaning the carpet in your house.

Re: Best way to clean fabric seats in car?

I just cleaned my seats a few months ago and had great results with OxiClean Spray, Upholstry Brush, Warm Water & white Terry towels.

Click the image to open in full size.

Make sure you use the spray (NOT THE POWDER), I cut it 50/50 with water to make it last, Spray it on the seats, dip the upholstrey brush in warm water and scrub, use a White terry cloth to wipe away the dirty water.

The seats in my car are a very light beige, They looked UNBELIEVABLE when I was done.
