    Tossed a bottle of "Deep Clean" fuel system cleaner for my outboard motor in the back seat after I got done messing around with the boat yesterday and this morning I realized that it was slowly leaking out into my backseat.

    Now I'm left with a large area that is way darker (even though its dry now) than the rest of the seat.

    Also have some ugly spots from the last year of abuse that I would like to get out. Anyone tried anything that has effectively cleaned these cloth seats?

    I read over at tacomaworld.com that Woolite works really well. I bought some to do my Tacoma interior and haven't gotten around to it yet. Hope this helps.

    Ouch, that sucks!!! Maybe try a carpet cleaner with the upholstery attachment? I've been thinking about doing that.

    Also, I've learned from past trucks to NEVER put any container with liquid on the seats and ALWAYS get waterproof mats (got 3D KAGU MAXPIDER mats) as your FIRST mod!

    Hey Mike,

    You "may" have an issue of it being stained permanently due to the chemicals in it. Some good suggestions above and you may need to find someone with a steamer.

    I have found over the years that sometimes stains don't always go away no matter.

    The other issue is that the chemicals have saturated the inner part of the seat.

    Get a spray bottle and see if the woolite offers a ratio suggestion. Mix the woolite and water and apply it that way.

    Well thanks for the suggestions guys I have decided to just spill more of the same stuff on all of my seats so they are all the same shade once again.


    J/k, coincidentally my dad called me a little while ago and asked me to take him to pick up his truck at a detail shop nearby. The guy that was helping him was the same guy that detailed my truck a few weeks ago when my ankle was broke. He hit it with some type of solution for free and said come back if it doesn't work. It hasn't dried up all the way yet, but already looks much better from what I can tell.

    That's a good one, Law! Don't know about the part that says "keeping housewives smiling since 1958", though! LOL!:thumbsup:

    Thanks Ron, I still have my doubts that it will be completely gone once dry, but you can definitely already tell that it diluted it some and it won't be as noticeable. Maybe I can have them hit it once more later on if needed or rent a steamer as some suggested.

    I'm not sure. IIRC, the person wasn't very detailed about the process.

    I wouldn't listen to any of these asshats on this thread. This is what I would do:

    -Buy a pull of bourbon or 12 pack of beer. I like a good whiskey...

    -Take at least two shots of whiskey first. Trust me on this.

    -Second, take the special someone in your life and give them a pull (wink wink), and then take a shot of whiskey.

    -Third, take another shot of whiskey for general purpose, but do you really need an excuse for a shot?

    -Fourth, just spread "deep clean" fuel system cleaner all over the upholstery to make it all match. Duhhhhh???!!!! Take two more shots.

    -Fifth, if you can still read this, you might want to go seek help for alcoholism....and take two more shots.

    -Sixth, sleep it off and maybe the stench of the deep clean injection cleaner will be gone.

    Good enough to clean your injection system, good enough to clean your interior.
