There's another one that apparently is specific for cars. Search AutoCare on the Bissell website.

i used to work at a dealer ship in the back cleaning cars and did alittle detial work there also the best way to clean a seat is i would use any type of carpet or apolstry cleaner if you have a hand held scruber like the one shown above that would work the best but alittle elbow grease nvr hurt and if it takes awhile to dry then so be it cleaning seats or carpet in the car will take some time to dry if done right so dont think it will only take a few hrs to dry and dont put ur windows all the way up or it will steam up the whole car and make it smell nasty if its nice out leave the windows down

Mumford: Do you think a dehumidifier would help in drying out the interior after you use the upholstery cleaner? I've used upholstery cleaners in my other cars, but they took too long to dry.

I was thinking that a dehumidifier would help in quickly drying out the car's interior.

Did you get the upholstery cleaner that I posted above? Bissell makes one specific for automobiles and I saw that it has higher suction power compared to the home one I posted.

Rent a Rug Doctor with upholstery attachment at your local Giant/Walgreens/whatever (go to Rug Doctor's site and search for a rental location near you).

It's only about $25 for 24 hours (plus whatever of their cleaning solutions you buy), and I've done my seats three times in the past 5.5 years, plus the headliner once.

The SVT seat fabric is notorious for showing stains, but the Rug Doctor has never let me down in getting the seats looking like new.

As for drying, I've found it dries overnight if left windows-down in some covered space (or you might try a tub of Damp-Rid).

@primetime cant say much bout the dehumidifier as far as im aware of that just takes the moister out of the air only thing we used at the dealer ship was the sun cuse there wasnt much of a rush to dry them id say just leave out in the sun during the high time (sun is at its highest point) and just leave it out there with the windows up if you dont soak the seats all that much it should dry within a couple hrs but dont quote me on that lol

@Focus202 i would love to come to vegas again been there a couple yrs ago and had the time of my life lol but the hand held scrubber if you were talking bout just a hand brush i would use something with like plastic brissels not to heard like solid but enough to scrub with but for a vacum scrubber i would use the bissel one stated above that would work great small compact and not to bad to work with lol
