you can spray it with any multipurpose non-abrasive cleaner, such as simple green. next you cann either get a scrub brush with softer bristles and lighty clean it, or the better option is to use a shampoo head on a air powered buffer. after you clean it, blow off the liquid with a air nozzle on a comprssor. thats how we clean seats and stuff at the upholstery shop i work at.

hope this helps

Haha! Simple Green is like the 'WD-40' of non-toxic degreaser cleaners! Carpets, laundry, hands, off-road R/C cars, etc. I've used a weak solution to clean the plastic and dash surfaces. No fading or cracking. I'll do the same when MY armrests get dirty. Rinse with a damp sponge, followed by a good sucking by my shop vac.

I just figured there are carpet cleaners out there that are less likely so leave water staining marks - I've seen it spill on upholstery before and it leaves marks even when diluted. I guarantee you that any upholsterer would definitely not recommend it - to each their own though.

well considering i work there and they do use it frequently to good effects, it is possible to use simple green on upholstery.

any carpet cleaner will work just fine, just dont overdo it or the suds will see farther into your door panel and ruin pant/wiring

Never said it wouldn't work and not to use it - I just said "I" would never use it.

I used some carpet cleaner.. seemed to work best.. I agree that simple green is good for a lot of stuff, but not using it on fabric I don't think.. it's better for exterior stuff, or trim pieces... but thanks for the ideas...
