Tips for cleaning and protecting cloth seats

Fri Nov 14, 2014 12:03 am

Hi all,

I purchased a new FFE over the weekend and I'm beginning to wish I had opted for the leather seats. I'm finding the cloth seats to be complete dirt magnets and difficult to clean. I have a two year old daughter who has a tendency to climb out of her car seat and get shoe smears all over the fabric. I'm doing my best to limit it, but as anyone with a two year old knows, they don't always listen well. :-) Any tips people have for cleaning the seats? I've tried simply water and a terry cloth towel to limited success. Is there a particular product that works well? And once I get it clean again, are there any good products I can apply to protect the fabric and to resist dirt? I've never used Scotchgard before but I'm seriously considering it.

Thanks in advance for any tips!

I sprayed a protective coating of Scotchgard Auto on my FFE's cloth seats last month.
Seems to be keeping it from getting stains and makes any cleaning easier.
