stains in the seats

I have a bunch of stains in my seats and the arm rest in the middle. Mostly from spilling some sort of liquid over these past 3 years. Any suggestions on scrubbing that stuff out?

I have the same problem too. I always set my drink on my arm rest when I get in my truck and its all dirty and I dropped a huge coke all over my drivers seat

personally, i use this stuff called folex, i stole a bottom from my roomate and worked pretty well. I think its mostly for use with carpets but it takes out those stains. I get it at smart and final since i work there.

I use Armor-all with oxyclean, a sturdy brush, some rags, and elbow grease. The stuff really works wonders, give it a shot. It works on viynl just as well as it does on the cloth.

The waterless car product for upholstery and carpet works pretty damn good...

So far it's removed,

Coca-cola (Soda) stains.

Oil/Water/Grease stains.

And not to mention it smells great.

Contact dave01978 on this forum.

The car wash product works good too..

I had about 2 months worth of road dust/pollen/rain spots on my truck and it tookem right off. Worked great on my bugged up chrome, and the bird **** too..

Repels some of the lighter road dust/pollen, and with an easy wipe down with a towel, it's back to clean.

I've yet to wax the truck down and then apply it though..
