I LOVE Simple Green!

When I bought my Tracker the once red seats were more of an orange...and dirty. I figured the red had just been faded by the sun until today.

I hadn't cleaned the seats from my last mudding trip, so yesterday I pulled all the seats out, hosed/vacced the tub and started pulling the seatcovers off the seats. The only one I removed was the rear bench seatback cover since it's the only one with a zipper. The rest of the covers are held on with hog rings. Since I don't have hog ring pliers, let alone rings, I just did that one cover.

My plan was to get the mud out of them, so I got approval from the wife and started filling the washer with water. I set the washer on "small load", let if fill, added about 1/2cup Simple Green, stuck the cover in, worked it around a bit to get the air bubbles out, and let it sit overnight. When I got up this morning I closed the lid and the washer went to work on gentle cycle (what the wife uses when washing her underwear [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]).

I couldn't believe how RED the cover was! I thought they were just faded, turns out they were orange from years of ground-in dirt.

Anyway a couple of pics:

I love the stuff too but the smell gets to me after a while. Also, make sure you don't get it on the paint or on aluminum rims. It wreaks havoc with the finish.

Re: I LOVE Simple Green!

Nice ..now to get the hog rings and a plier ! I have used the blue coral cleaner with decent sucess in the past when I didnt want to pull the covers off the seat . 2 or 3 applications and you will be suprised at how well it works . I dont know if it will do as well as the Simple Green though !

Re: I LOVE Simple Green!

it works GREAT for cleaning greasy/oily engines! heat up the motor to operating temp, spray simple green full strength everywhere under the hood, and let it sit about 20-30 minutes. hose it off and you'll be amazed at how clean everything is!

However do NOT NOT NOT NOT use it on the dash.

Was cleaning up some old parts to put on ebay (the turn signal/wiper cluster) and the simple green took the white "Decals" right off the stalk (the pictures of the wipers, lights, etc)

Re: I LOVE Simple Green!

I used it today to clean years of grime off my Samurai. It had probably never been cleaned before. I just shot it on the motor, let the truck heat up a while, then pressure washed it. It's unbelievable.
