I am concerned about the silver areas of the seats. Mine are starting to show some satins and I was wondering what products and process you folks use to clean your seats?

I've used "Blue Coral" upholstry cleaner. You can get it at Autozone. It worked really well, I just had to apply it a couple of times as per the directions.

I've never had any luck with upholstery cleaner from a can. It looks great after application until a drop of water hits the seat. Then all the dirt comes back to the surface.

Most hardware stores will rent steam cleaners for about $20 a day or so, and that's what I do when I need to clean the interior. They come with an attachment for upholstery and work very well. However you will spend a bit of money on the cleaning fluid they need so figure $60 or so for the whole job.

I used to use Meguiar's "All purpose cleaner" from their detailer line. Dilluted 10:1 with a foam sprayer nozzle and a brush made specifically for automotive interior use (I used the same brush on the delicate door panel fabric without damage). It worked very well and the cleaner has a fabric softener and brightener in it which leaves it feeling nice.

Folex. Works like a dream 99% of the time.

I also use my little green clean machine from bissel, so the dirt doesn't get ground into the upholstery too much.

Shopvac and a trampoline-like hose bounce to get sand particles and cracker crumbs* out of the grid portion of the fabric.
