What do you guys clean your seats with?

I have noticed that my 05 nonleather seats are looking a little dirty.Especially where the rain has dripped on them from getting in and out of the car on rainy days.I was woundering what would be the best thing to clean them with?

most cloth upholstery cleaners use the same stuff. i have had a lot of luck with the ones that have a scrubber built into the nozle on top. i dont know why. i have tried resolve and a few others, all seem to work about the same.

They are the same stuff. I've been in most of their production plants. Anyway, use the scrubber tips. Afterwards, shoot some Febreeze everywhere that's cloth.

Those should go well with the screenlights mentioned in another thread....

Anyway, like others have said, any of the cleaners with scrubbers should work fine...I've had good luck with pretty much any of them, including the cheap ones.

I'm tempted to get JDM rainguards. I wonder how they work with frameless doors?

Mine need a cleaning too. Blotches in the back seat. Some white stuff too, I hope it comes off as it might be dried wax. Anyone know if the can cleaner with the plastic scrubber will snag the netted seats? Or should I use something softer? Inquiring minds want to know. Or just me.

I wouldn't use the scrubber on our mesh seats. Stick to terry and microfiber cloths.
