<< They are cloth seats and I am wondering if anyone has an good
recomendations on how to clean them up as best as I can. If I can make em
look worthy to be in my van :) I would like the cloth and the cushions
better than the vinyl/plastic ones that I have now. >>
This is what I've done on several occasions: While the seats are out of the
vehicle, I sprayed them thoroughly with "Simple Green" (some other detergent
type cleaner may be substituted) I scrubbed any areas which had heavy
soiling, Then took them out in my driveway to hose down. They came out
looking brand spanking new. It took one day of warm weather to dry out.
I later found that the pressure washer at the local self service carwash
works even better, I use the wash cycle to soap it up, then rinse off. To
speed drying, I then used the vacuum cleaners.
Of course, perform at your own risk. This worked for me but not necessarily
for everyone. If the upholstery is too worn for this operation, they are
probably not worth cleaning.
