Removing Stains

I dropped some chocolate on my SVT seats and didn't notice it for about a day and then used that automotive Oxy Clean stuff and you can now see a ring where I sprayed the stuff. It got rid of most of the chocolate stain but now how do I get rid of the ring the oxy clean stuff left???

Have you tried our "Spot Out"?
It works, even where others fail:)

Not to familier with this Automotive oxyclean..so it's just a spray, thats it? I used some regular grainular OxyClean on my floormats and they turned out great! I mixed in 1 full scoop of Oxyclean to 1 gallon of water and used a stiff bristle bruff to agitate.

Maybe I just didn't use it right. The oxyclean was in a spray bottle...I'll try again with it.

The SVT fabric is fond of water spotting though, the wetness itself may have just formed a ring?

If so I hear the solution is to rent one of those Rug Doctor thingys from the market, and use it on the fabric, without any cleanser, just the hot water and let dry. My seats only have very vague water spots in one or two places so I haven't tried it myself yet.

Thanks Amanda...I'll try that if just cleaning it with the oxy clean again doesn't work.

Let us know if you try it, and if/how it works.

I'm not sure SVT could've chosen a more high-maintenance fabric with which to upholster their seat inserts!

Oxy Clean is stubborn! To me it sounds like it was just sprayed, and then wiped dry. Oxy Clean usually has to be "rinsed" out of fabrics so I would reccomend getting a wet towel, one wet enough to absorb into the seat and just gently rub that area for a couple minutes while changing the area of the towel you are using to rub the seat from time to time so that you dont rub the dirt from the seat onto the towel and back into your seat.
-I hope this helps! It should work!
