I've used previously (and had great luck with) Turtle Wax's "Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner" but I ran into a problem in my charcoal black cloth interior in my SES.
On the back seat I had a small area that needed cleaned where my son, well, threw up. It worked awesome, and left no evidence that there was ever a problem whatsoever. Well, I decided to use it on the front passenger seat as well as there was a couple small areas. Unfortunately, it didn't work out as well as the rear seat. [facepalm]
It cleaned the spots, but now the seat looks as if it is still wet in the areas I sprayed (I.E. it's a little darker than the rest of the seat, and it looks like hell) and it's been over 24 hours.
I don't see any difference in the upholstry between the front and rear seats, so I don't know why this happened. Anybody had similar experiences? Any luck getting it out? Thanks all.

hi, [welcome] to FF!
I'm just guessing but maybe you sprayed more than you thought? I've sprayed cleaner in mine before and soaked it a little more than I wanted. it took about two days to go away, so right now I'd say you could still be fine.

I went pretty easy on the cleaner. At least, I'm pretty sure I did. 48 hours later, it's still there and bone dry to the touch.

I'm having the same problem. Did you find a remedy?

how long has it been since you applied the cleaner?

Rinse it better.

I just sprayed it on the entire seat evenly then scrubbed it in.

that type of cleaner is not going to get puke stains out. You NEED to use a cleaning solution, like woolite, and extremely hot water. Better if you had access to a steam cleaner(actual steam cleaner, not the little green machine that i use).
True, HOT steam will disinfect as well as remove the stains.
