    Cleaning the grey/cream suede on S3 recaros!

    Hey!
    Not sure if this belongs here or in detailing!
    Anyways, this wet weather has done no favours to the seats in the S3!

    The suede is looking really dirty and "bobbled", anyone got any handy tips or products that can be used to get some life back into the stuff!
    Thanks!

    This is the official cleaning instructions from Alcantara themselves....: Ordinary maintenance of your Alcantara products

    I did my cream seats last weekend and used the following process:

    - Lightly brush with suede brush to raise nap
    - Use 'Remington Fuzz Away' to remove bobbling
    - Vac
    - Clean with Raceglaze Alacantara Cleaner (google it)
    - Wipe dry with microfibre towell

    I then cleaned and fed the surrounding leather for good measure. All in it took about 2 hours but they looked like new afterwards.
