:CRY:Does anyone know how to properly clean the interior of an 06? On my truck if you spill one drop of water on the seat, it leaves a stain.:CRY: I've tried using a interior scrub but to no avail. Someone help?

Your fighting that to? Turtle Wax Ice seemed to do the trick.

Turtle Wax Ice? What is that? I thought about getting a small steam cleaner and doing that to the seats.

I wound up using a mix of laundry soap and warm water. it worked good, just a dash of soap, though it may have just "stained" the seat evenly. I wound up getting seat covers because i hated looking at spotted seats every time it rained.

Those seats stain terribly. I hate how they react to any moisture.

steam cleaner won't work been there did that, works great on the carpets though.

I have tried EVERYTHING myself, figured couldn't make it any worst, I have just the seat bottoms on order right now, once I get the new ones I will have some seat covers made that won't let anything through.

I LOVE my truck but HATE my seats!

Whats funny, is that DODGE advertises that those " ESSENTIAL" seats are stain proof and odor resistant. My new truck has cow crap all over the inside...lol green and tan go good together...lol

i'm glad it is not just me.. new truck and the darn seats are terrible.. what i did when i got the truck to the house the very first time i did scotch guard everything but i still get stupid stains and when i sweat in 100 degree and get in the truck it looks like arse... but then it dries.. i guess the scotch guard saved it a bit but i wish i had cloth or even leather now that i think about it.. i'll try the products suggested.. hope it helps..thank you

What a joke! they put this little niffty tag on the seats and it makes you think I got something speacial in these seats.... what a load of BS, wrapping mine in leather will do the trick then I got something special.

I cleaned my 06 rear seats today! I couldnt take it anylonger! i have 2 young kids and they have destroyed my rear seats, i removed the seat covers and sprayed them down heavy with shout, and scrubed them with liquid tide. After letting them sit for 10 min i used the preasure washer which removed all the koolaid, and ice pop stains. The last thing i did was run them through the rinse cycle in the washing machine and then let them dry in the sun. Let me tell you im shocked at how clean they are and they no longer have water spots.:thumbsup

I have never used anything but HOT plain water and my seats look like brand new. I have taken grease off of the passenger seat before. The dealer told me when I bought them to never use anything but warm water or they will stain. I have had good luck following their instructions. My only other observation, the hotter the water, the better it does. The seats look stained for about two hours, then they dry and look just like new.
