    Took my dogs for a swim, brought them in the truck to go home and the seats are all muddy. Tried soap and water. It worked a little. But what do you guys use to clean your seats? And what's your method on cleaning them. Thanks

    For future reference, if you don't want to just put them in the bed after they go swimming, you could do what I did, which is affix indoor/outdoor carpet to the back of the fold down seats. It makes a more stable surface for the dogs than the seat does, and obviously it keeps dirt and mud off your seats.

    .
    I work outdoors and my seats kept getting dirty, I would take the truck in for detailing and they would use the upholstery/carpet cleaning machine on the seats. It got to beannoying not to mention expensive, so I finally gave in and bought some TRD seat covers from another TW member. Compare the upfront cost of covers to the steady cost of trying to keep the seats clean and the headache factor.

    Light solution of simple green and a dish scrubbing brush. Works great for me, also works well on the floor mats. Make sure you use a wet towel to get any left over soap out, as soap attracts dirt.
