    Anyone know of a good protective film to put over my upholstered armrests? I dont want to stain them when I drive home from a grubby day at work. I am concered that most products will leave a sticky mess behind. Any advice would be appreciated.

    im not real sure about a film that will go over the area, but depending on the type of upholstery it is, you may be able to use some scotchgard on it..........it will at least lessen any stain from staying on the armrest. if that isnt an option......an upholstery shop may have some clear plastic that will fit over the area and not be loose. we have done that on a few golf cart seats when we had expensive seat covers installed on them.

    Not enough to mention on this one. Give me time!
    Cover them in leather and be done with it.

    wrap em in saran wrap just for the drive home and rip it off after you get there. Not a sporty looking accessory but hey if it keeps the armrests clean and you take it off when you get home who cares.

    How about a long sleeve shirt for just the ride home? Get in the driveway, take it off and leave it in the truck. I keep sneakers in my truck to swap out my work boots. When I get home, the sneaks come off and go right back in the tool box.

    Thanks guys I went with the contractor cling wrap stuff, and it works ok. No more grubby armrests and it peels off easy for the weekend!:D
