    I have got some stains in my seats and I am trying to get them out! I have been trying to get them out for about 3 months now so they are set in pretty good! Does anybody got an idea as to how to get these out?? Or something very strong and good to use??

    It's a matter of trial and error.....

    Get some carpet & upholstery cleaners at the store - you know, the ones that you spray on, vacuum off, etc. You may want to let it soak and actually use some water and 'scrub' a bit. If that doesn't work - then move onto other chemical cleaners. Steam cleaning would probably work but I don't know how expensive they are to even rent....??

    Get yourself some seat covers !

    I am trying to get some stains out of my seats! Stains are a little bit of sweat, water, soda, Gatorade etc(all the normal stuff a guy could get on the seats). I tried steam cleaning and it did not work, I tried spot shot and it did not work, I want to get these stains out asap, someone please inform me of what to buy, where I can get it, and how to use it if at all possible! My interior seats are a tan color! Please help asap!!!!!!

    x2 on Spot Shot |OR| try Windex (or another glass cleaner...not too much, you'll leave behind a blue stain).

    I re-read your posts (and noticed that you tried Spot Shot already...:eek:). I used generic Windex on my stains, and they came out...tan interior as well. If you do it, try it in an inconspicuous spot first to make sure it won't screw up your upholstery. Good luck man!

    No bleach. It's basically a water softener so any thing organic is attacked. Windex type chemicals also work really well but you want to find a clear windex. The food coloring in it might stain.

    A paste of oxyclean will eat anything that is organic. It should not stain but you can try it on a hidden spot first.

    I don't use Oxyclean I use a generic one that seems to work better.

    Hell if I know. Just go to a big food store and look around where they sell Oxyclean. Grab the generic one. A lot of companies make that stuff. It's not new in fact it's like 100 years old. Oxyclean made it famous again. I'm telling ya it's just water softener.

    A buddy who works at a car place told me to come by and get some lacquer thinner, he said it will work great! Anyone know about this stuff??
