Default Seat/Carpet Cleaner

I have this yellowish stain on my rear seats that i have no clue what it is from. I used the blue coral carpet/seat cleaner, after seeing good reviews on it. but the stain looks the same. tried letting in soak in, did multiple passes, etc etc...

any good products you guys recommend? or cool tips? i have a 2003 wrx, which are the blue/black seats. last think i want is to ruin my seats... think a steam cleaner will do the trick?

Try tuff stuff. It has worked well for me in the past, and is what we used when I worked as a detailer at a Mercedes stealership. It would lift greasy stains but not sure about your 'yellowish' mystery stain. I'm pretty sure I know what that is
Resolve may work better, but I don't have experience with it. If there is a strange yellowish odor to it then Nature's Miracle works great in that department.

If that doesn't work maybe an oxy clean type cleaner will work. In the past I've gone as far as removing the seat cover from the foam and washing it in a bathtub, but that was an extreme case.

try 303 carpet/upholster cleaner and a good brush, if that doesnt work then steam cleaning might be the only way

what color are your seats? find some paint dye that matches the same color and run with that if the seats are black just get some black spray paint and try it worked well for me.

303 makes great products, including a carpet/upholstery cleaner. Their original product is great for all plastics, inside and out.
