Picked up some breadsticks for dinner Sunday, and the wife held em for the few blocks home. Well, she called me yesterday about a new stain on the passenger seat... sure enough. My guess is the bag leaked all the buttery-goodness all over the seat, and now there is a stain the size of a dinner plate in a rig that has 5K miles on it. :angryfire:

Anybody have much luck with any interior or upholstery stain removers? I'm sure it is too late, but figured I'd ask. I hate seat covers, and like the stock seats, but I'm thinking it may be my only option. ~Steve

i am a chef so i have to get out greasy stains al the time.....


add 1 oz of DEGREASER to a 16 oz mild soap soultion...

dont use an orange cleaner, or carpet cleaner.....you need a dedicated DEGREASER to break down the grease in the seat...


for he mild soap... just use either dish soap or laundry detergent....


hope it helps

yeah after the degreaser and mild detergent, I would use a steam cleaner to get as much back out of the seat as possible. I have a Bissel little green, about $60 at home depot, walmart, wherever, works like a champ on all my stains. I have 2 kids, so I've had to use it on the truck several times.

good luck!

how about pen? someone sat on my backseat and got pen on it right smack in the middle, not very big, but very annoying.

Zout, a clothing stain remover, will remove pen. Spray, let sit/soak, wipe and blot up, and repeat if necessary. But be careful and perhaps try it first on a hidden section on upholstery. It may fade some fabrics and I haven't tried it on my X. It worked in my Integra though.

I have had success with what Smthrde recommended but never tried it on something absorbent like seat cushions. If that does not get it, then try Folex (http://www.folexcompany.com/). We use this stuff A LOT around the house. With two dogs having a combined weight over 110 pounds, we clean up all kinds of things. Everything from mud to a lizard that was not digestable. Folex works everytime and the stains do not come back later. You can get it at Lowe's, Target, etc.

Wow, sounds like lots of options. You guys are getting my hopes up. I'll try to give some of these ideas a shot this weekend and report back my findings.

Thanks for the replies! ~Steve
