Question Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner - Seat Stains

New owner, same story with regard to some light water stains. Been using the search and started looking for a solution. I found this Turtle Wax cleaner online. Check out the "From Fans Like You" video on the bottom right. Anyone tried this sucker with their seat stains? I am going to give this thing a shot and then do the Scotch Guard if it works!

Re: Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner - Seat Stains

Yes I used it. I would suggest that you just let it sit for about 2-3 mins WITHOUT scrubbing as directed. I had a severe coffee stain and tried repeatedly to remove it as directed and it never totally came clean. What I ended up doing was letting it foam the stain it up until you could see the foam take on the color of coffee...then blot it up. The stain never came out completely, but it was much better than before (even after it was professionally detailed). Obviously it has to be done a few more times, but looks better than when I started.

Re: Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner - Seat Stains

I tried it too-- stained my center armrest worse. From a stain standpoint I hate the interior of this truck.

Re: Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner - Seat Stains

I'm seriously considering some professional upholstery repair/replacement in upgrading the center sections of the seats with a different kind of fabric insert for the same reasons.

Re: Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner - Seat Stains

I actually tried it and it worked pretty well. I did the ScotchGuard 3 times. My seats are exactly like the ones below (Not my Truck) so they don't look bad like the other seats posted above. I guess I was lucky to get the dark interior.

I'm considering the same thing, maybe inserting the seats in black vinyl, giving them a tu-tone look. Only had mine 2 days, it had the seat spots in it at the honda dealer, guess they couldn't remove them, 09 only had 14k miles on it.

Re: Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner - Seat Stains

I used the Turtlewax Oxy upholstery cleaner this weekend. I really didn't have much in the way of stains - just wanted to do a general upholstery clean. I had a number of spots afterward - looks like crap.

The fabric on the RL seats, door and center console armrests is a disaster to keep clean. Every kind of stain or liquid leaves a mark and then is very tough to remove. The fabric on the armrests isn't wearing well either. Really wish I had leather in this thing just to avoid that kind of cleaning hassle that this cloth presents.

I do note that in the past, I have been able to remove spots/stains with Lifter 1 where other cleaners would fail. That stuff is for spot removal only - has a pretty strong chemical smell and is not designed for general upholstery. But for carpet/seat fabric stains, it's the best I've found over the years. If you can use it prior to another less effective cleaner, it will work even better. It gets out some crazy stains.

Usually the oxy stuff of any brand is pretty good, but I need to find something that won't leave the spots on the seats to use as a general overall cleaner. I'll try another brand and report back.

Re: Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner - Seat Stains

I've done mine with Oxy Magic by Armour All. Worked for me but was not stained too bad. If I was planning on keeping my Rl for a long time, I would seriously consider after market leather seat kits. Or maybe the Clazzio seat covers. I've seen aftermarket leather seat kits that look better quality than OEM.

Re: Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner - Seat Stains

This is what I used as well for a few 'minor' stains on my RL and it seemed to work just fine. The stains were nothing too bad, but for the maintenance cleaning, it worked like it should.

Re: Oxy Power Out Upholstery Cleaner - Seat Stains

I have been using Tuff Stuff and a shop vac to pull it out after a quick scrub.
