Re: How do you clean your seats?

The SRT seats are vinyl not leather, I first noticed this when I sat in one and felt the seat, it felt nothing like the seats in my 300 C SRT8. I then checked dodges website and yes it said vinyl with the cloth inserts. Until 08 the RTs are the only ones that get leather seats.
Now in 09 they are going to release the SRT seats with leather instead of vinyl.

cheers

Re: How do you clean your seats?

I used Dawn Dish Soap, Hot Water, Scrub Brush,and a Shop Vac to get a large grease stain out of my rear seats. It was a very large spot from hot wing sauce spilling out of the box. I sprayed the area down with hot water, then just used a small dab of Dawn Dish Soap on each corner and one in the center. Scrubbed and sprayed hot water at the same time, then vaccumed and sprayed hot water until the area was clean and dry. Worked like a charm.

Re: How do you clean your seats?

I decided to go with Wet Okele neoprene seat covers instead of cleaning these seats EVERY week. They are expensive, but a set on my Ram outlasted the truck itself. Just don't get a pattern with white in it...

Re: How do you clean your seats?

OK just tried the iron and water trick, worked great at getting the stains out of the cloth part. Up to this point I had tried 3 different cleaners and they all just pushed the stain around. Get the wifes iron and some water in a spray bottle. Spray down the area and place a cloth (clean one) over the stain. Push down with iron and check from time to time. Should transfer the stain onto the cloth (white cloth works better to show that the stain is getting lifted). Hope this helps.

Re: How do you clean your seats?

Seats are quite easy to clean. Heres how I do it: Small sponge, bit of soap(not liquid) and water. Rub soap to the sponge, then rub at the dirty spot, let it affect for a while, and rub it away with a CLEAN sponge (a new sponge, or wash the old one). After these it looks like there is a bigger stain, but it is just water. Do NOT put much water, it has to be just moist, not wet....

Sorry about my english skills, Im from Finland...

I used to clean my seat with vacuum cleaner which i have bought from https://bestvacuum.reviews/vacuum-under-200/. Before vacuum, i used to take my car to car wash station which is very costly for me, so i thought to buy new vacuum and clean my car myself. And i am happy by cleaning my car myself because i feel good and satisfied.
