Best Upholstery Cleaner

Hey quick question looking for what you all might use to clean your seats... I have the black seats in my edge, and for a while I have been using the blue coral cleaner with success, but for whatever reason I am not having any luck with it. The seats still have that greyish look to them. I am open to any suggestions.

B/C cleaner? what is it?
You might want to try watering down some degreaser/simple green, and using a shop vac to suck it back out. Or find a "rugdoctor" those rentalable carpet cleaners, mostly for houses, but you can use the attachments to do it.

Another method is a stiff-bristled brush. Use Simple Green or the like (as suggested), scrub it in throughly and evenly, then dab the seats as dry as possible with either paper towels or very clean rags, and use a vacuum to get the remaining moisture out. That's how I do it, I'm not a pro but I do small scale detailing out of my garage as a hobby.

blue coral is the best interior cleaner i have used to date, short of steam cleaning. black is a hard color to keep clean. i use the spray bottle kind, rub it in with a medium bristle brush and let it dry to a powder. then vacuum off and usually it comes clean. sounds like u may need to steam clean em.

i never tried the simple green/mean green/simple orange/etc...diluted before, i think it might have a bleach effect on the material.
