    How do you clean your seats?

    I have a big, drooly pup who loves to go on car rides. As a result, he's left behind some spots which I'd like to get cleaned out. What kind of cleaner do you guys use?

    I use the CarpetSpot (forgot the name) spray which is pretty heavy duty and safe. Might want to spray some Febreeze or some of freshner to get rid of the stank.

    I was being sarcastic about the Febreeze but there's this foam carpet freshener that I used in my car and it still smells good after months. I forgot what the name was but it's a foam type.

    To keep the mess off the seats, I bought a car seat saver from www.duluthtrading.com for $39. It's a fabric hammock with straps that fit around the front and rear headrests. Ive tested this product with 2 golden retrivers in my rex wagon and it contains 90% of the mess.

    I read at Autopia about people doing similar things. Using 6:1 ratio of Woolite and water to clean the upholstry. I'll give this a go this weekend.

    Thanks for all the good tips guys!
