How do you wash your cloth seats?

Is there a way to wash or clean your cloth seat? Whats a good way to detail the interior?

I use Stoner's carpet and upholstery cleaner
The 1st step is thoroughly vacuuming the seats, then spray a light coat of the cleaner on one half of a section of the seat. Gently wipe with a white towel and repeat until the dirt no longer comes off onto the white towel.
Once the seats have been cleaned vacuum again.

My Ride: is clean & protected
I would recomend you vacuum the seat to get the heavy stuff. Then use a clean brush and brush from the head rest down. This will clean up a ton of dust, hair and other particles off your seat (A commonly skipped step yet probably the most effective step). After that I would spray any areas with an upholstery cleaner http://secure.detailedimage.com/Merc...ry_Code=Carpet and brush out any stains or discoloration. I use the 303 cleaner and it works great for me. I also like to Fabric Guard it after, the 303 Fabric Guard http://secure.detailedimage.com/Merc...ry_Code=Carpet does a great job of keeping soil and stains out. Accidents are just waiting to happen so the fabric guard has bailed me out a few times.
