Does anyone know of a good upholstery cleaner?

I have an 06 with the unique honeycomb seats and dont know if there is a tried and true brand to use. Any suggestion will help.

I have a Bissell Little Green steam cleaner that I use for the interior upholstery. I use a myriad of different cleaners depending on the stain. Dish soap and hot water works pretty darn good as well.

Theirs a lot of cleaners out there. I think I remember reading in a previous thread that some cleaners ended up leaving more of stain, so be careful. I would search for that thread. It had a lot of good info.

Thumbs up

I used Woolite Oxyclean (I think thats what its called) and that stuff is amazing. The first month I had my truck my little brother vomitted all over my seats and it smelled and looked really bad. This stuff took it all out and left no stains or odors.

Back when I had cloth upholstered seats I would use Blue Coral foaming cleaner, works well and smells good. I would rub it in with a clean damp/wet white terry cloth. then come behind with another clean terry cloth.

I love my leather now cleans easy! Wipe it down with a damp terry cloth, condition, and I'm done

Another good trick that my girlfriend's dad showed me. He does auto interior repair and reconditioning for many of the local car dealers. he uses a 50/50 mix of denatured alcohol and water and a white terry cloth. The liquid lifts the stain to the surface and evaporates quickly leaving the dirt behind, then just wipe/rub it off with the terry cloth. My girlfriend's Xterra she used to have had the same type of fabric as the tacos. Alcohol water mixture worked well on those seats.

I've found that ordinary Windex takes out many upholstery stains really well- saturate the affected area and let it soak in 5-10 minutes. Blot it with a clean white cotton rag/towel and repeat if necessary. Once it dries you'll never know there was ever a stain. Learned this trick from an auto detailer.

Agreed. I use that stuff to clean the panels, trim, etc. I also use it if I dont have any upholstery cleaner available.
