Default Dingy Seats

Alright i got some nasty stains on my seat from me being all greasy after wrenching on my friends car, and some stains from before i bought the truck.

I tried some spray can carpet cleaner to no avail, actually it made it worse....

Ive read that the bissle green machine and simple green are the way to go. I figure it should work on the center console and carpet as well.

I use Oxy clean and hot water. Problem is is u just do a spot it will look obvious. Almost have to put it in an upholstery cleaner machine and do the whole thing just pre-soak those areas.

My spray can of Carpet Cleaner from Dollar General (!!) pulled out some really bad stains surprisingly well.
I'll leave it a week then give it the treatment again.

I finished about 3-4 hours ago, i use simple green, a bottle of water, a brush, and my shop vac. Looks pretty good, just gotta see how they look when dry and during the day.
I guess im detailing the rest of the truck tomorrow.

If still nasty try Blue Coral carpet. After applying / setting rub with damp cloth and then a dry one.

OR you can buy NEW upholstery!

thats what I did. paid $220 our the door for it. I used to use the Simple Green and Bissel Green Machine on my factory gray and black seat covers and it worked great though.

if you are interested in new seat coverings, contact this guy:

http://motors.shop.ebay.com/terrato3...d=244602236387

Here are my upholstery from him:
