Cleaning Vented seats

How do you clean the perf inserts in the vented seats ? I am starting to find little debris and accumulation in the perf inserts.

Re: Cleaning Vented seats

I tap the seat with a plastic vacuum nozzle while its on. If that dont get the stubborn ones, I used compressed air.

This is one of the reasons I passed on the package on the limited. I have twins on the way, and I started imagining spilled milk and baby vomit getting through the holes. Was wondering how to clean it once that happens.

Re: Cleaning Vented seats

I tap the seat with my hand while using the vacuum and 30k miles later they still clear and clean.

I use car seat mats to avoid this as they cover the entire perforated section and the rear seats still look like new.

+1 on car seat mats, or at least a towel.

Doesn't that defeat the purpose of nice leather seats ? I agree that's the ultimate way just reminds me of my grandma's house !

Re: Cleaning Vented seats

MY kids or someone who will not admit it sat on the seat on top of a soft white mint which was pushed into multiple vented holes. I tried soap and water but there was still stuff stuck. I am going to attempt to use a toothpick or safety pin which means whole by whole cleaning.I tried calling jeep to see if it was safe to get moisture on the seat and how generally to clean but they never had the question before, which I find odd. I noticed other areas with spots. I don't like where this is heading with my new car. I may ask the local detailing shop how they would handle it.

When there are two huge car seats sitting over top a small black mat, it doesn't really take away from the look. When I remove the car seats, I remove the mat as well and the seat looks like new.

Car seats, and their occupants, can sure make a difference.

Wink Re: Cleaning Vented seats

OK, I used the toothpick method and it worked. I had to moisten it to clean each hole and had to push the dirt (in this case mints) through each whole. I would imagine that crumbs and things would be going through those holes anyway. For the surface, I used a sponge with soap and water, but based on an internet article used the bubbles/suds to clean it up. That worked well and then I applied some leather lotion on that spot and surrounding area.
