    Its not a stain, its just a water mark. All he need to do is dampen the whole seat with clean water and a cloth to ensure as it dries it doesnt leave water marks. I had the same problem as him when I valeted my interior with a Vax machine

    Getting a wet vac off a car washing mate tommorow so ill try that..
    A wet vac wont make any difference mate, when I cleaned my seats I used a propper 3-in-1 machine and was left with the exact same problem as you. If you go out now and dampen your entire seats with clean water and a cloth, I;m telling you now it will sort this problem for you. You're pretty much bang on with the giant water mark comment, you need to dampen the whole seat so that as it dries there is no area it can leave a water mark.

    Not REALLY damp, just damp enough to darken the fabric of ur interior so you cant see the existing water spots any more. Do the whole seat like this and when it dries u should be water spot free!

    Like I say I have the same colour interior as yourself and this is the quickest and easiest way to solve the problem. Its a tried and tested fix! lol

    Yes and no. You dont need to wet it in an even way, you just need to dapmen the whole seat. The water mark isnt a stain that you can 'clean' out, its simply a water mark, and to get rid of it you need to dampen the whole seat so that it dries evenly. Cleaning it with a wet vac would work to a point, but you'd still need to dampen areas you cant easily access with a wet vac such as the sides of the seats. Plus using a wet vac will dampen the seats more than you need to, meaning they take longer to dry in this weather. As your seats are already clean a wet vac will just be mking pointless work for yourself. Go out now and wipe the seats pover with a damp cloth, just enough to darken the fabric. By morning it will be sorted.

    I live in Billingham, a 5 min drive from Stockton. Yeah let me know how you get on!

    I had the water mark problem on a massive scale after cleaning with a machine, but as you can see, after my bucket of water + damp cloth trick they are now perfect.
