    Default Seat Stains

    After the snow, where people have got in my car with wet backsides, its left that sort of water stain, any ways to get rid of it or what to use. Also what's safe to use on the dash, as I'm a bit wary after the magic tree incident a while back ta

    Hi m8 for the dash all i use is just a damp microfibre cloth .
    As for upholstery cleaner some of the best ones are the chepies 1001 carpet / interior cleaner works well on car seats similarly woolite cloth cleaner i have also heard to be very good , best way to treat car seats is to mix up 1001 or woolite 50/50 in a spray dispenser , but hoover the seats /carpets first to remove all the loose dirt then spray onto the surface and adjitate with a medium /stiff brush (i use a clothes brush i knicked of the gf i think she,s still looking for it) then have a few micro fibre clohs handy to soak up the foam and to dry the carpet/ upholstery

    In a few places you cant stuff called 'VALEY' - this works great on dashboards and plastic, as well as removing grime from cloth. Takes grease and paw prints off plastics and takes them back to natural finish, I also cleaned the roof lining of my alfas as when I bought them they were heavily smoke stained - brought them up like new.

    (called upholstery cleaner but works amazing on the dash)

    I use 1001 in my Vax to do the seats and carpets and normally pre treat any stains with AG Interior Shampoo. Just use AG Vinyl and rubber care on the dash.

    I clean carpets and furniture for a living do not ues 1001 or any other cheap stuff like that on any fabric it will discolour it unless you do every where it will then look ok what you need is a browning treatment as this will remove the water mark all it is is where the dirt in the seat has been loosened by the water and moved like a tide mark so either normal shampoo or just water and browning solution where abouts are you Im in MK once a week will only take 10 mins
