    I wouldn't pressure wash them, you could blow a hole right through the clothe!!!

    Try vacuuming them off first. Then try some spray-on cleansers. Vacuum some more.

    Call your local upholstery shops and ask how much it would cost to clean them. It might not be that expensive.

    Have you looked at the clothe more closely? Can you remove the skins?
    If you can somehow remove the seat skins - put them in the clothes washer.

    Rent a carpet cleaner that has the separate upholstery attachment.

    if there not old and brittle, you can power wash them. When I was redoing my old 4runner i took the seats out and took them to a do it yourself carwash place to use the powerwashers on them...Worked pretty good, just took a few days to dry completely.
