Tuff Stuff. It's in a yellow can with a yellow lid. It's pulled out any stain I've ever had

Walmart sells it. I'll vouch for it too, it works hands down the best out of everything I've ever tried.

I should have wrote it the other way around. Distilled water / Woolite 10:1

Simple Green always works for me. Use a scotch pad or a brush when scrubbing.

Whatever you use to scrub the stain, have the garden hose and wet/dry shop vac ready to rinse it out. A few years back I bought a Geo Tracker soft top from a smoker. Spent a weekend scrubbing and hosing that puppy out, top to bottom. After you dampen the cloth with the hose, start scrubbing. Do a section at a time. Have the hose barely turned on and in a spray mode while you use the shop vac (in wet mode w/o the filter) to rinse and suck away all the dirt. Acts just like a rented carpet steam cleaner.

I like Permatex hand cleaner for grease stains, its like Go Joe but no pumice and its safe on fabrics. Or with a 50/50 mix of Simple Green, spray down the area and work it in with your finger nails and let it soak for a few minutes and follow that with a heavy water rinse (spray bottle) and vacuum with a wet/vac a couple of time.

Best way to get smoke smell out is Fabreeze. I used it on leather chaps. My Mom told me. :))
