Hi all,

This might have been asked before but whenever a drop of rain blows in through the open car door or some bottled water is spilled it leaves the most obvious stain on the seats which looks like someone is incontinent

I've got the basic greyish coloured seats with lighter silver/grey coloured centre panels. Any bright ideas to get rid of it and also to protect the seats in future?

I might try a damp soft cloth but fear that might make the problem worse, gahhhhhh.

Cheers in advance,

Hi, I used 1001 stain remover/Vanish carpet cleaner on my wifes seats in her A-Class.
Apply to the seat, use a fairly stiff bristled brush and scrub entire seat, rinse with a damp sponge, allow to dry and they will come up a treat, only downside with mine was having to do the other seats to match the newly cleaned one!

Hi Justy
I generally wash the whole affected seat part, then when its dry its all the same colour again.
