Question How do I clean the TRD seat covers?

I've got the factory Toyota TRD seat covers and my drivers side is a bit dirty on the gray part from all of the work I do in the outdoors. I'm curious to know what the recommended way of cleaning them is. I thought about some spray carpet cleaner but thats probably only for small spots at best, plus i dont know how it would affect the materials. I also thought about putting them in the washer on delicates cyle with a little laundry soap and then air drying before putting them back in. So, a little confused..... whats the best method for cleaning them without messing them up?

Take them off wash them by hand in warm/hot soapy water and let them air dry.

Thought about that too, but seems like a lot of work due to their size and being fairly stiff material. If thats the only way, I guess I'll have to just deal with it

I would just be worried about putting them in the washer even on a delicate cycle, i think they would get frayed or something...

Oxiclean works great! I used it on my armrest & the doors. It removed the oil & dirt from my vinyl. It works great on many things.

I bought some at wally world (Walmart)

I've cleaned all sorts of stuff including coffee off the gray part of my TRD seatcovers(still on the seat) with a damp cloth, I suppose a little soap wouldn't hurt. Start out mild. I'd stay away from laundry machines too

A front loading washing machine is great for washing seat covers. Just throw them in on the delicate cycle and it's all good. Front loaders just tumble the clothes around - no post in the middle to twist shit up.

My rufftuff covers have been in my front loader about 4 times.

Thats what I was thinking about the front loading washer. You think these would be ok in there? I'll still see what Toyota says too though.
