    So my friend picked up his brother last week and his brother was sitting on a stump. Now he has sap on his seats.

    Any ideas to clean that off that won't discolor the fabric? It's a Scion tC, black cloth.

    tips for getting dog hair out of wet okeles? We have a husky and german shepherd, the husky hair is so thick and coarse that it somehow embeds itself into the seat covers (as in it gets looped in under the material). we have a pretty good vacuum that works wonders without the WO's but with the amount of dirt they drag in and out losing them is not an option.

    Anyone know if plastidip overspray can be permanent? Just did my side badges and noticed some on the door and side panels. Took out as much as I could with a quick detailer. Dont have any bug and tar remover, and plan to do a full clay, wash and wax next weekend. Since I'll be busy the whole week. Hopefully the clay bar step can get rid of it. Just paranoid that it'll bond in the week it's left on. Any intel would be helpful. Thanks.

    Don't think it is permanant.. Google plastidipping whole car, and you peel it off if you wanted. That's why people plastidip instead of painting sometimes..
    So I would try peeling it before you put anything else on it.

    Thats all I use, works great and probably the easiest stuff to put on and take off. I use it everywhere, the glass, plastic, and of course the paint. Makes everything look like new and the water just flows right off.

    Thanks, I know that peeling it off when its solid and thick. But my overspray is more grainy and spaced out. If that makes sense.

    Yeah, sounds like you'll just have to individually peel off each spot.. :mad:

    Nah, there's a way to get the overspray off. I had some and I got it off by washing it with something. I don't remember what it was so I don't want to tell you the wrong thing. Look in the plastidip megathread, that's where I found the info.

    Mask off your badge and the clean areas of the truck then spray plasti-dip over the areas with overspray. Let it dry and I'll bet you can peel all of it off at once.

    I use one of those sticky lint rollers to remove dog hair.

    I do the same. I have two German Shepherds and they shed like crazy. It's really a losing battle. Anyone have any other suggestions other than the lint rollers?

    You can also put on a rubber glove and rub your hand over a surface. It will bunch the fur for easier removal.

    the GSD hair is easier...it's the freaking husky hair that gets looped into the fabric of the Wet Okele's lol...think I'll just add an old bed sheet to the backseat to cover it up instead.
