    Help with seat covers

    Good evening, Has anyone used APC to clean neoprene seat covers from Rough Country? Looking to clean while still in the vehicle. TIA for any advice.

    You stumped me on this one, in almost 10 years I don't recall having to personally advise for this one. So i phoned a friend, a co-worker, and he said that in the late 90's early 2000's these were the trend, not that they are not now, but sounds like was when they first came out. Here is what he recommended:

    First he said that it is crucial to remove covers to clean
    Next, he said should soak in a large container with our D108 Super Degreaser diluted at 10:1, and no stronger than 10:1.
    Next, Rinse thoroughly
    Next, soak with dish soap like Dawn or Palmolive at recommended dilution on label, i.e. how many ounces to use per gallons of water
    Next, rinse thoroughly
    Complete

    He also noted that APC can leave residue in this application, so is not recommended.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the advice, I did the rest of the inter. and she loved it. We decided to just vacuum the seat covers cause they weren't nearly as bad as she said. Next time I detail her jeep, I will do the D108 solution.

    Re: Help with seat covers

    In Hawaii and Southern California there is a popular neoprene seat cover maker "Wet O'Kole" I have had them for years. I run them in the washing machine with tide than hand wash the with O'Neils Wet Suit soup. Once a year always look like new!
