    Well I stained my seats

    Yesterday I was moving an lcd television using my back seat, and when I removed it, I noticed that it left two tiny (maybe dime sized) spots on the back seat. Whatever was on the bottom of the TV is proving impossible to remove. It seems almost like glue, but has remained sticky, almost like dried soda. I've used a few cleaners, but the residue is still there, and still sticky to the touch.

    I'm beginning to think that I'm going to need some type of solvent, but I'm obviously afraid to put anything harmful on the seats of my 3 week old car. I'm sure something like "Goof-Off" or something similar would cut the mystery stain, but who knows what it would do to my seat.

    Has anyone ever had any experience using a semi-powerful solvent on cloth seats? It's really quite frustrating because one of the stains is smack-dab in the center of the seat, on the light gray section. Any help or experience would be massively appreciated. Thanks.

    Update, and info for anyone else that has spilled glue or other adhesives on their fabric. I ran by the dealer to ask if a product such as "Goof-Off" would harm the upholstery. We tried some on a sample and it did not, so we dabbed a rag with it and blotted the stain on my seat. Sure enough, it started to cut through whatever was on there.

    It's taken an additional application, but the stain is gone. I went ahead and removed the back seat, ran a Bissell cleaner over it, and left it indoors to dry. There are no signs that anything was on the fabric, and it smells nice and clean.

    Hope this helps if anyone has ever done something like this.

    Magic Eraser! Try a magic eraser and you might have to go over it a couple times but I bet it will work! It will shed white crap that you will have to vacuum after if you go real crazy with it.
