2012 Ti Seat Stains From Water?
After a recent snow storm, inevitably, some snow got on the cloth seats in my Titanium. I have the upscale black cloth, and now, they are stained badly. Any tips for getting these stains out, as it looks horrible, and I don't want to mess anything up lol.

I would try more water and a wet dry vac. Probably a good to test in an inconspicuous area first.
Put clean water in a spray bottle, spray the area and then extract the water with the vacuum.
But how would snow which is water, very clean water at that, stain black cloth? Or was it snow from the ground that was mixed with salt or dirt?

I would start with a rag moistened with some club soda.

Be careful how wet you get these seat covers. I previously worked for Ford and first hand saw issues with seat covers caused by water. The water is causing a reaction with the flame retardant chemical used in the seat covers and cushions.

You may have pushed some of the existing dirt that was on the seat. Shouldn't be a problem to spread out the ring, so to speak. Use a damp microfiber towel with a light all purpose cleaner, like Simple Green diluted. Make sure to rub over the entire seating area with a little extra attention on the rings left from the snow.

If your seat was/is unusually dirty, it may be best to have a professional go over it with a hot water extractor.
