I spilled water in my 06 xterra (grey interior) the other day and it left a huge water spot on my drivers seat. I tried to remove it with an automotive stain remover and this stained it even more. I think it has something to do color fastness of the fabric. Anyone esle with the same problem any suggestions?

Welcome to the club. :wave: I know of one product that works great but am drawing a blank on the name of it right now. I'll post back when I remember the name.

I had a little stain on my seat and I used some Scotchgard fabric cleaner. It was in a red aerosol can with a scrubber top.

Why would water leave a stain? Doesn't it just dry up?
That's what I figure, but for some reason it left a stain. Or maybe the part I spilled water on is now clean and the rest of my seat is dirty!!! LOL

that might be a possibility. off roading can kick up alot of dirt.

I too will benefit from this magical product to rid stains. Unfortunately mine might be worse, I was eating a granola bar with chocolate chips in it. One snuck out and landed in the seat, I didn't see it until I got out of work and the sun did it's job melting it to the seat. Now it looks like a poop stain on my seat. Never thought I would miss the buring hot or freezing cold leather seats of my old car.

I've used 409 for carpet and works great, just need to apply it to the whole seat and not just the stain.

I use that Blue Coral carpet cleaner with the little brush thing attached to the spray nozzle. It comes out of the can foamy. That stuff has never failed me even on the worse stains. I use it around the house on the carpets, too... that with a little muscle works better than any Bissell stuff I've ever used.

Dan, you never gave the name of your magic potion. I've got a dooser of a stain after ECXC.

I used Simple Green, and dillute it quite a bit. Key for me is to dry it up as soon as you dab the SG on the stain. if you let it sit and air dry, you will get a new larger spot. I use a heat gun, be careful not to torch the seat...um, that would be a bigger problem
