The black cloth seats in my 17 sport stain very easily. I have used a little interior cleaner to try and get rid of it but it seems to make it worse so I just live with it. The stains look sort of white and circular like water stains and when I tried to clean it the circle just gets larger. I like the material and pattern of these seats but the stains bug me because I'm a bit of a clean freak. Anyone else had this issue? Any suggestions?

I have the same problem with my 2018.I Used a foam upholstery cleaner,then wet it with a wet microfiber,then dried it with another microfiber,and use a waterproof seat cover .I haven’t tried Scotch Guard.That may help to protect it.

Interesting enough I just noticed this same issue with my 17 sport. Thought it was one my kids who must have spilled something on the passenger seat to cause the white stains. I just used microfiber cloth and water and it was gone but just notice a little more again yesterday.

I guess it’s a common black cloth thing. I wonder what is in the cloth/foam causing the white residue/stain look. I have not notice it on any other seats. Just passenger front.

Any photos of the culprit stain? Does it appear like a slightly faded area? I had one like that only the back of one of my BE seats and I use a leather care product called lexol quick care it is not oil based so it doesn’t make leather slick or greasy. Good at cleaning and conditioning leathers. I use it every 3 months on all of my leather surfaces. Not to mention it smells deliciously like cedar.

This was a problem in the G1 Ridgeline also. Cleaning them and spray with Scotchguard seemed to be the solution.

IDK either. May not be your kids spilling anything. I have not spilled anything on mine at most maybe condensation from a water bottle. Anyway thanks to all who replied and I will give the water and microfiber a shot.

All my other black interiors have been leather. I will give some these suggestions a try and if I have good results maybe I can post some before and after. Probably will go minimal first with water and microfiber.

Whoops just reread OP’s original post. Didn’t notice we are referring to cloth seats. DO NOT USE THE LEXOL ON CLOTH INTERIOR. The civic I used to own had this problem with its interior. My dad owned a detail shop and so I always used commercial products to clean my car. I used something similar to this. It always seemed to get the water stains out of my cloth seats! Best of luck!
