Cleaning interior / Seats
 
Os I have 2 kids. 2 and half and 1. Needless to say my back seat in the 3 months I've had my truck, has been destroyed with juice, milk, chocolate milk and snacks. Seat covers are in the near future. However I'd like to clean my seats first.
What do you recommend to clean the upholstery?
I was thinking resolve?? What should I use??

Thanks
TJ

If you want to keep it simple, I've used something like this http://www.turtlewax.com/main.taf?p=2,1,4,16. You spray it on, let it sit for a few seconds or minutes and scrub it with the attachment on the can. They work really well at removing stains.

If you're seats are stained and a little grimy from the kids dropping juice and snacks, then maybe you might consider steam cleaning them. Here where I live they rent the Dirt Devil Carpet Cleaner machines at the supermarket. They have an attachment with a smaller head. I would definately test it on a small piece first and use very little of the cleaning solution just to make sure your seats don't get messed up.

If you're not too excited about doing it yourself, you could go to a auto detailer (not a car wash) that does seat and carpet cleaning with a steam machine.

I've laid down the law with the grandkids, no eating or drinking in Pop-Pop's truck(and definitely no candy or gum, even in the house). Got tired of scraping up gum and stuff off the floor cause it never seemed to make it in the trash. Eating in the house, they need to be at the table. Sounds harsh, but with 4 boys between 2 and 9, gotta do it.

Sounds like you're getting some good advice on getting your seats clean, and after you do that, I would recommend some sort of scotch guarding, which will help protect it until you can get your seat covers, but I'm with deanthecrabman, no food, drinks etc. allowed in my vehicles, and it only took cleaning a friend's gooey Chinese food out of my console area to establish that rule! :)

The scotch guard is a great idea also! You can get it at an autoparts store in a spray can and it's not expensive at all. A lot cheaper than having to clean the seats all over again :LOL:

If you get one of these kind of spray cleaners, it brings a brush and it works really good. I've never used that brand, just showing the can.
