Cleaning upholstery seats

Hey guys what's the best way to clean upholstery seats? Ideally I would like to use a hot water extractor but I don't have the funds. It would probably have to be an OTC cleaner as well. Any help is appreciated

There are alot of different ways to go about that according to what you have at your disposal or how kind of stains/dirt you are trying to remove.

Larry Kosilla from AmmoNYC did a great vid on interior cleaning, he used the example of leather but the same idea can be applied to all kinds of upholstery. Using as mild of a cleaner that will do the job, different kinds of agitation, heat if needed ect.

here you go.

Check this out.
Things you'll need - A rotary or DA polisher, a clean, dedicated pad (wool works best but foam will work. (Dedicate this pad strictly to seats. You dont want to reuse this pad on your paint the next day), spot or stain remover of your choice, and a couple cans of dry foam such as Blue Corral Dri-Clean or Tuff Stuff.
