    I spilled a thing of sweet tea in my crotch yesterday on my 2009 Tacoma TRD offroad seats. This has left a nice stain ring where the tea dried. Can anyone recommend a way to get this ring to go away or what I can do?

    Simple Green!

    Washed my Sport (bucket seats) yesterday. I've washed them with Simple Green in the past as well. Works Great!

    You'll likely have to clean an entire section instead of just the spot that has the stain. Otherwise, the clean spot will then look like a larger stain. Especially if you have even a little bit of dirt on the seats (which is not always visible). Just spray an entire section and let it sit for a minute or two. Then start scrubbing with a towel or material of your choice, turning to a clean side often.

    ive actually got some simple green...what did you do? take them out? or what? I dont really have the option to soak them since this is my daily driver, so it would have to be a quick clean...haha

    Nope, just spray & start scrubbing with a towel.

    If you need to use the truck, just place a dry towel (or 2) over the seat while driving. Then take the towel off and leave the windows down a little to let air circulate when not using the truck. Your weight will help the towel absorb some of the excess moisture while also keeping you dry. Just remember to take the towel off the seat and let it air dry when you aren't sitting in it to help it dry quicker.

    Consider investing in one of the portable(small) steam cleaners for furniture, $50, for future cleaning. It sprays hot water and sucks it back up just like a full size carpet cleaner.
