Sticky Request: Howto Clean the CLOTH seats

Anyone with a newer ranger knows that plain old water will leave a 'stain', and that keeping the seats clean can be a real PITA. Heres how to clean them the easy and cheap way.

Tools needed:

Shop vac
Scrub Brush
Little bucket of HOT water
mild dish soap
Elbow grease

Step 1: Vacuume up all loose dirt

Step 2: assuming you have your hot water and mild dish soap all ready to go, make it bubbly in the bucket.

step3: apply mostly bubbles but also some of the hot water directly to the seat with brush... the idea here is to NOT soak the seats.

Step 4: make it a nice lather with the brush. do the whole seat, yes it will soak in, dont worry too much at this point

Step 5: When the whole seat is done, vacuume it up, go slow, you wanna suck out as much water as u can...

Step 6: let the seats dry. it takes me about 5hrs before the seats are dry enuff to sit in and not get a wet bottom.

Step 7: admire you new looking seats.

Its easier to do if the seats are out of the truck. this way you can wash the whole floor and the seats all at once. pulling the seats is alot easier than you think.

there ya go.....
