Cleaning car upholstery

Posted by Clarkey (Clarkey), 5 September 2003
Thanks to the endeavours of my two young children the seats of my car are nicely embedded with all number of stains, not least chocolate and sticky sweets. Does anyone have any tips for cleaning the seats without having to hire expensive equipment.

The best way I can describe the material is synthetic / polyester - basically the standard stuff you get in modern cars these days.

Thanks, Clarkey

Totally unsceintific and a bit housewifey i know but i have found wet wipes (especially pampers -because they are quite damp!) are great on car seats and inside the roof.I have chidren who love to smear everything over my car .It is a cheap/quick method and if you carry them in the car you can clean up straight away therefore not letting the stain dry (they don't tend to leave a water mark either!)

Brought a car from the auctions and it looked like a smokers paradise. Roof lining and plastics were all covered in nicotine the seats where filthy  the carpet was stained with oil and tar tried every thing to remove it .
My m8 said to me try vanish oxi so i did put it in a squirty bottle and sprayed every thing in the car ,left it for 10 mins and wiped it off with some soapy water and it come up like new very impessed i was.
ps try a bit in a none conspicus place
