Default Rear Facing Car Seats - How to keep back of seat clean!

looking for a product recommendation I think... my toddler is too small to flip to front facing and now that its winter she is tracking salty wet shoes into my car and her feet lay right against the back of the rear seats (FABRIC).

I see tons of products to cover the back of the front seats, but i not seeing anything to protect the rear seats when the car seat is rear facing.

Anyone been through this before?

I actually used one of the said front seat guards (for protecting the back of the seat), and put it on the front of the back seat. (Jesus that sounds confusing)

Basically, I took the seat protector you're mentioning, and hung it off of the headrests of the back seat to "drape" it over the seat surface. I tucked a small towel under the edge of the car seat to catch any drippings, and washed it every few days. Worked like a charm for my toddler until he went front-facing.

I was searching for the wrong thing I guess... so I searched for "car seat protector" and ordered one of these:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...0?ie=UTF8&th=1

It doesnt look wide enough though, but we will see...

There are tons of them.. but this bad boy has the red stitching to match the rest of my car haha

Was just looking at something to protect the back of my front seats. Never had problems with the car seat in rear facing position. But now in front facing he's got his feet touching all the time (2yr old). Going to get myself some Britax Kick Mats (which may need some modifying for the wrx headrests).
Like CGumina mentioned, this type of protector may work well for rear facing as well.
