    Default Removing grease stains from car seats?

    ok so i bought a set of second hand SS sports seats (cloth) to replace my crappy seats in my exec commodore. the seats were a bargain and the stain didnt bother me because "how hard can it be?" type moment and well 3 days and numerous cans of upholstery cleaner and stain removers the stain still remains. any pointers on how to remove them?

    Try making a paste from washing machine powder and use a fingernail scrubber to work it in then wet it and keep scrubbing then get a damp cloth and wipe all the soap off/out. Try this OR i used some blue oxy action prewash stain remover from the washing powder section from woolies worked awesome ontop of this i used polyglaze upholstery cleaner. It got BIG grease stains out of my seats because me being the dumbass that i am, jumped in my car with greasy hands and leant on the seat.. Also used scrubber at this stage.

    I've actually used washing powder on my hands before. Your skin feels a little weird after (soapy and very dry) but it works pretty well if you've nothing else.
