Cleaning fabric seats in a car

Your fabric seats are going to get dirty at some point, but luckily for you, it’s pretty easy to restore your seating surfaces to their original glory. The first thing you’ll want to do is remove any dirt or debris covering the seats by thoroughly vacuuming. Once you have finished vacuuming, you’ll want to lightly spray the seats with a high-quality fabric and cloth cleaning solution. Make sure you don’t spray too much or allow the spray to saturate or over-soak the seats, as this may cause mold in the underlying cushion.

Vacuuming your car's seats

Immediately after spraying a small area of the seat, use a soft interior brush to get a thorough clean. Dirt and grime will be picked up, so make sure you have a microfiber towel on hand to scoop up any debris. If you notice that there are still stains on the seats after this has been completed, it’s time to call the heavy hitter. An interior scrub pad should do the trick, but be careful to not scrub too hard or the seat’s fibers. Once the seats are clean, you’re going to want to vacuum again just to make sure you’ve picked up all the dirt and grime before it reattaches to the seat.
