No slip seat cleaning/treatment?

So I did the dumb thing last night, and cleaned the seats and steering wheel with some Armor All leather cleaner (wipes).
With nice and clean/shiny seats and a steering wheel, I spent the drive home for lunch (spirited driving) struggling to keep by butt planted in the seat. (Brings back memories of why I don't Armor All my snow machine seat.)

Anyway, what do you guys use on your seats to keep them nice, that doesn't require a 5-point harness to keep your butt planted?

Mesh or suede insert?

I use the same leather wipes on the leather portions of the seat (I have the mesh inserts) and I don't slide at all.

I believe the SRT has the mesh. It's the seats that if you look at them too long, they show a stain.

Haha, yes they are a lovely fabric. Scotch Guard works really good on them though.

I use those same wipes though and don't have that issue. My ass still stays glued to the seat.

It could be that I haven't cleaned it very well in the last couple months.
I have also been back at the gym nightly again, training for an up and coming mtn bike race. Lost loads of weight and my 12 pack I was working on.
