anyone know the best way to go about cleaning the seats in my 62? I was gonna borrow a steam cleaner but im scared if the seats were made with polyester I will melt them

- the seats are solid no tears or anything, but there are a few stains..?
The lady had seat covers on them which were torn, so in the pic you can see the top part is a seat cover but the bottom is the orig seat...

Any ideas on how to go about this???

Back in the day I had a girlfriend that marked up a seat simular to that one a few times...:D I had really good luck with woolite foaming upholstery cleaner and a small brush. You can also use cheap pump hairspray to loosen up those stains (used that allot on my whites when I was in the Navy...works like a charm).

The poly whites CRT's would yellow...When I was a recruiter I used to get ink on them all the time. A nurse I knew showed me the hairspray trick...and a few other tricks as well!! :D:thumbsup: Got to luv health care professionals!!;)

I would throw those seats away, but I can tell you about cleaning the plastic vinyl and leather. Lately I've been using 303 Automotive Protectant which I read about in the article Best car interior dressing | Interior dressing for auto detailing where it says what is interior dressing car wash. There is a lot of information here that can be useful for both beginners and professionals. I recommend to take a look.

old thread but a common current and regular issue with old cars SO
try FOLEX its the only safe product for any fabric carpet ect. it is spray on and leave NOT a steam cleaning product
its excellent try it. very safe and very easy and very effective. I have used it numerous times with incredible results.
even when other products failed folex got it done.
