Out Damn Stain Out

Anyone have a trick to cleaning seats in our trucks? My Ranger Sport came with two tone Grey/Black seats, the black is fine, I can't a coffee stain out the grey to save my life. God i miss vinyl seats, one wipe and they clean. Tips?

I got the interior protection package on the fabrics .... is a breeze to wipe stuff off fabric with damp cloth.
As for your predicament I wish I could help. Maybe hairspray ?

Use a carpet cleaner with an upholstery tool

Just be careful. I found that even cleaning with water will leave a water stain on that material. You can't really spot clean. You have to clean that whole part of the seat.

I know what you mean, I have the comfortweave style seats in my Ranger and they show EVERYTHING. Best I've used so far is a Bissel Green Machine as mentioned above.

I use oxyclean on tough stains.

Mix some oxyclean with water and use a plastic bristle brush.

Soak the area with oxyclean then use the brush to work up a lather.

Use a microfibre towel to soak everything up.

After you get the stain out you may actually have a cleaner are then the rest of the seat.

Use oxyclean over the section to make sure the seat looks consistent.

If all else fails ...
I bought some inexpensive seat-covers at CT soon after I got my truck, because I sometimes get in with dirty work clothes. They actually fit pretty well and look decent. If they ever get a stain that I can't clean, I'll just replace them. I think they were maybe 25-30 bucks for the pair. They've lasted well for 3 years now.

Good luck with your cleaning.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

I've tried Oxyclean which takes the dirt out but leaves the seats with a water stain. I work at Canadian Tire, we don't sell a set of 60-40 split seat cover anymore. If I'd known how bad they would stain I'd of had Ford work a set into the deal, I priced them recently at Ford, $100. I wonder how well a steam cleaner would work?

Turtle Wax brand "Power Out" cleaner will work on that stain just fine.

They have one for seats and one for carpets. I have used this product with great success... even took out stains that a pro detail shop couldn't get out!

CTC sells it...
