Default Car Seats Upholstery Cleaning?

After many years of driving young kids around, our car seats (cloth) are a huge dirty mess. Juices, milks, ice creams, dirty sneakers, you named it and it's probably on the seats.

Any products out there that can help clean the seats? What do you suggest?

Thanks much!

Can't really comment on that particular item, but the reviews look good. And the price is right. Just a question of lots of time and elbow grease. I can tell you that on my wife's 2006 Outback with tan cloth seats and carpeting, it had plenty of stains. I elected to go to a very good car wash around here (they also do basic, decent detailing) and had them do it. Price was $100.00 complete interior and it looks great. It was just way too much grunt work for me, so that was money well spent.
If you have the time and want to try it yourself, go for it, but again, be advised - it's more work than you think.

Thanks. That's definitely an option we're also looking at. Have the shop detail it.

Yeah, sometimes that will yield a far superior solution and a lot less fooling around on your part. They'd typically have a steamer/extractor that can work minor miracles.

Folex took the stains out on my seats before. Just spray folex, use soft brush then use vacuum or mf towel.

I use Griots 3-1 Leather Cleaner/Conditioner on my Audi and Porsche. The Porsche has very light colored seats and Griots works great and making them look brand new. Very happy with the product
