Seat Stain

Somehow managed to get the Fix and Go liquid foam stuff on my passenger seat this morning. Tried my usual stain remover but it isn't getting it off? Anyone have any suggestions??

Re: Seat Stain

What is it a stain from?

Do you have a steam cleaner? Invest in one quite good at removing stubborn stains.

Re: Seat Stain

Not quite the same thing I know, but the rain appears to have stained my front seat. It should have the 'pureguard' stuff on it (I paid for it!!) so I was wondering if these seats do stain very easily? never heard of rain doing this before.... The dealer is going to have a grilling about this soon!

In answer to your original question you could try a valeting place. Some of the hand wash places near me (Lincoln) will do it for between 20-50 depending on the quality of the place. Other than that a (good) fabric cleaner might be worth looking into.

Good Luck

Re: Seat Stain

Cheers for all the advice. Just remembered a mate from work use to do a valet and said he will do a full one for 30. He done my bosses car and he said it was top notch, hopefully he is working tonight.

Re: Seat Stain

I think the Fix & Go gunk is something like a liquid latex or contact adhesive. It has to flow freely when intoduced into the flat tyre, but then fill the pucture and presumably set to seal. I think you will need some sort of solvent, which hopefully won't melt your seats Let us know how you get on.

Just checked my Fix&Go, says on it:

Contains Ethylene Glycol
Contain Latex

So a concoction of condoms dissolved in antifreeze
