    I have a Vax that I do the indoor carpets with already. I use Megs APC 10:1 and an interior brush I dip in warm water. I hoover excess water up but always leave window open to dry thoroughly.

    Are the seats stained or do you just want to give them a clean?

    it is worth getting a wet vac, BUT this time of year you will find it hard for them to dry, best to do this sort of this in the summer, start early and leave every thing open and in the sun,you will also see marks were it dry out

    I too would leave it till the warmer weather. I have used a wet/dry vac on the wifes Vectra B, and it still took a number of hours to dry compleatly, that was in the summer( if you can remember what they were).

    You can do it this time of year but you need to put the engine on for a while and avoid getting them too wet. Otherwise it will leave water marks when drying out and will start to smell damp.

    its better to see them and deal with them as you go, if you have do leave it to dry over a few days, it will look different when the dry completely
