    Hello folks

    I think I may have oil soaked into the foam of the seats and the carpet of the boot, so I was wondering if any of you folk know of a way of getting it out?

    The options I have came up with are;
    1) replace the seats
    2) hang them up and destory them with the pressure jet to see if i can get the oil to come out
    3)ring a valenting company and see if they have any ideas

    So guys what do you think and do yous have any tips/ideas?


    Thanks
    Chris

    Couple of things i would try mate are.....spraying it with diluted all purpose cleaner and rubbing with a cloth and if that fails get something like 'Brisk' from Autosmart, dilute and work with a cloth or softish brush

    If you was closer id do it for you with my valeting machine

    Should do the trick.

    I use a product called FAB which is one of the best upholstery cleaners I have used. I've had some great results with it and TBH for £7ish it won't break the bank to try it.

    Apart from that you could try steam cleaning the affected area
