    Default Stinky Seats

    Anyone else ever have seats that smell awful? I just started noticing it the other day, but my seats just stink.

    Any ideas on cleaning them?

    I'm in training at Leonard Wood right now so I don't have the normal home ammenities, but I was thinking of maybe trying to rent a steam cleaner from Lowes or something.


    Thanks.

    LOL Jonasty with stinky seats hummmm
    ok sorry

    I would mix up a jug of simple green and warm water soak them real good while using a scrub brush. Simple green kills many smells and shouldnt ruin the seat material.

    The best way to clean stinky seats is with a good hot shower. Oh wait you mean the other seat, my bad. Steam cleaner work pretty well. I use one on my wifes car about three times a year. After they get completely dry give them a good spraying with some Febreeze. Wait for the Febreeze to completely dry before sitting on the seat else you'll be getting some strange looks from people.

    Look at an auto parts store close to you. They typically have an interior/upholstry (sp?) cleaner that has a built-in scrub brush. You can even find some fabric cleaners at Wal-Mart.

    I'd try soaking it with febreeze but I had a roommate that used to soak his stinky PTs with febreeze to "clean" them. The smell makes me sick now.

    I'll look at the auto store next time I'm there.

    Thanks.

    These are some interesting and some what odd ideas. But I had a similar problem with an old pick up of mine. I went to a local auto detailers and told them problem and they hooked me up with some fancy upholstery cleaner/deoderizer that worked perfectly. Might want to try a local detail shop and see if they don't carry a product that you could buy.

    Did you try watching what you eat before you drive it....Sorry could not resist that comment! Steam Cleaner should work along with the febreeze.

    No one asked what kid of seats you have... So I will, cloth or @$$ burning vinyl? If they are cloth its not just the covering that has a sweet smell in it. Im sure its your carpet and every other cloth item in the Jeep. If your seats are not cloth, then a steam cleaner is a waste of money. just use a hose and a hard scrubbing brush with soapy water then let it dry, and sit on a towel for a few days.
