How To Clean Fabric Car Seats


Hi. I’m Mark from Autoglym. And today, I’ll be showing
you how to remove stains from fabric car seats. No matter how careful you
are, sometimes accidents happen in cars. Food, drink, and
other liquids can leave some pretty scary stains. But with the right
products and techniques, they can be removed. If you have a leather
interior, please check out our leather cleaning video. To tackle stains on fabric,
we need Interior Shampoo, a foam sponge, an
absorbent cloth, and a bucket of clean water. Step One is vacuuming the seat. Step Two is to spray
Interior Shampoo onto a section of
the seat at a time, making sure you
get good coverage. Then, take the damp sponge
and start to scrub the seat. You can be a lot firmer with
car seats than you think, so give it a really good clean. Add more cleaner and rinse
the sponge as you go. Now the dirt has been
lifted from the fabric. It’s held in the foam. So it can be removed
with the cloth. Step Three is wipe
over the seat, and rinse it out in
the bucket as you go. You’ll soon see that the
water starts to change color, as the dirt moves from
the seat into the water. After one section is complete,
move on to the next area, until the whole seat is done. Make sure you clean the
whole seat, or at least a panel at a time,
or you may end up with a patchy, uneven finish. And there you have it. Stains removed, and a much
more pleasant car interior. [MUSIC PLAYING]
