Dry Clean Seat Bottoms

Has anyone asked their cleaners to dry clean their seat bottoms? I eff'd up and got some grease on my ROW cloth driver seat. Dawn dish soap did a pretty good job but I was just wondering if I hit it with professional dry cleaning if I can get the fabric a little brighter.

I don't want to scrub it too much by hand so as to avoid it fuzzing up and looking silly.

When I installed all new foam I put mine in the washing machine on the sanitize steam cycle and they came out looking great... Click image for larger version

I know it looks like they don't match but that's the flash. They match.

you might want to try a product called K2R. I used it in military school and it's great at spot cleaning. it's dry clean in a can.

I would test anything fore use to be sure it doesn't melt the foam cushion or discolor the old cloth cover.

Clay, did you get the seat cover off? If you can soak it for a long time in hot water using dawn and maybe some gojo that should get it out. Hopefully.

Need to take another look. I hate to risk shrinking or distorting the seams. I should do all three at once I guess.

Hot soak, cold rinse, air dry. It shouldn't shrink.
