    I removed the seats from a old car of mine and aqua vaxed the dirty buggers, that worked well, came up a treat, I've never used a seat steamer though before

    I have a steam cleaner and it does some what work cleaning cloth material. But I have a cheap one that cost £30 and not that great. I've seen some of the pros use this sort of thing...http://www.supersteamer.co.uk/features.html
