    I don't think you can get much more ironic than this -

    I was washing the truck last night, somehow knicked my knucle, and managed to get three blood stains on my driver's seat. The outside is clean, but now the inside is stained! :(

    Anyone have clues on how to clean this? The stain has been sitting for 12 hours now :(:(

    ice water and elbow grease. rub the stain with ice and work on it with a tooth brush then blot. You could also try club soda (not a lot though)

    Funny, I was going to buy a camera this weekend... might have to wait if I have to end up getting the seat detailed.:(

    It's not an 'extreme' stain (I didn't spurt everywhere like a horror movie), but I made it a point with this vehicle to never eat food in it, I have have 'emergency sandals' in the bed cubby to pull out if my shoes are muddy, ... etc, etc. It's a visible mockery that is eating me alive!

    I'll go from the least chemical-ly solution upwards, so you get the first shot ;)

    Fortunately we have ice and I have a cloth. I used the ice cube to scrub, then the cloth to blot. Too wet to see results, I'll check back in a bit.

    cold whatever you choose. found out the hard way hot sets it in. if it's anything other than water test it in a non visible place first.

    Color matched door handles, Weathertech mats, rubber bed mat.
    There is a product found in pet stores called Nature's Miracle. It does a great job getting blood stains out of carpet. It should work well on seat fabric too.

    I've rapped an ice cube in a white wash cloth and scrubbed it like that too.

    That Oxyclean works well on cloth but don't get it on the plastic parts. They looked excellent right after cleaning, but then when it dried totally it left a white film. Had to go back over it with a wet rag (two cleanings instead of one).
