our seats are just dense foam with a cloth cover. remove the cover, throw it in the washer on gentle cycle with soap (let it soak for a while), then air dry and reinstall. chances are the foam is fine underneath.

Re: What to use to clean seats

If they're cloth and you really want them to super clean afterwards and you have the time or can drive a diff car for a few days you can remove them, soak them with a hose, spray them down with some all purpose cleaner/degreaser (could ask a local detail shop if you could have/buy some) and then lightly pressure wash them. You just have to be really careful to not get too close and rip the fabric. Probably the most evasive and involved way but just thought I'd suggest it lol. Been a professional detailer for years and in my opinion nothing does a better job then just pulling the seats

Oh just thought of another great way that is way simpler. If you have a high speed buffer and can buy a brush attachment for it, that works wonders as well. When I did that I would spray some foaming citrus cleaner (or something similar, even glass cleaner works ok) onto the seat, get all of it, dont have to soak it...but just make sure you get even saturation or when it dries it will look funky. Then set the buffer on low speed and scrub away with it.

Steam Cleaners works great to. Just rent them for a day, purchase the cleaners and start cleaning

Well I think if you have cloth seats then you can wash them, but washing them more can destroy them. I think the steam cleaning is the best way to clean them. Because it have less side effects for seats and also the heat of steam can kill the germs.
