    Hi all! Well with nothing to do today, i decided to clean my car as per usual every week. But this time, my friend came along and spilt some detergent on my seats :mad:!!! Nevermind, i thought. I'll just clean them, so i dug out my vax cleaning kit and with a budget of £0 i decided to use something i had in my garage for about a year - halfrauds upholstery cleaner. Now this isnt the best thing on earth, but no harm in trying, my seats were horrid anyway! Used the.. urrm Two "flora tub" method (pics to come) with one dirty, other clean with some of that cleaner in and used a cloth (no brush just yet due to budget) and agrivated the cleaner into the seat. Did a 50/50 and woahh! What a result! Thanks to jimmeh for some advice quite a while back on how to vax it! It isnt the best job in the world but much much cleaner and better than before! Pics to follow shortly when imageshack decideds to work!!

    Lol!! Well most of it was from the previous owner and just got worse because i didn't know what the hell to do with it! Well worth it though! Looks much neater but im going to give it another clean when i get the biobrisk which should give much better results! Next is the floor! Its not the best either!

    Yeeuurrgh! Do your seats smell as bad as they look? Actually thinking about it, it would be a bit weird if you went around sniffing your car seats. Forget I mentioned it.

    Gops, you're a filthy bugger! You weren't reading the 'Pics of Mrs' thread while sat in your car were you? Massive change though, most impressed. Really changes the interior I bet.

    I did my seats when I first got mine as they looked like they had jizz or something else dodgy allover them. My vax made a huge difference too, i was amazed. However, my current dilemma is that I got A LOT of stale grass water allover my seats at the weekend, and now my car smells like a farm. I have tried my vax, and it helped a little, but i reckon that I need a super shampoo or something to go through the seats?!

    Anyone recommend anything?
