    The front seats in my Cupra R could really do with a clean. Can I use a normal household carpet shampoo with a wet and dry vac?

    Either household carpet shampoo with minimal water, upholstery cleaner or something like a rugdoctor would do it.

    Steam cleaning is also an option

    I've had good results with Chemical Guys Fabric Clean.

    I did the ones in our new Leon Cupra today, just used simoniz interior foam and my handheld steam cleaner! Came up a treat!

    Thanks all. I'll have a go with the carpet shampoo and hoover I've got.

    A Vax will do it, you can get the pro chemicals for doing upholstery from places like Ashby's and Prochem, of just pay a carpet cleaner a few pounds to do it properly. It's probably worth it as you only need it doing once every several years, unless of course you use the car as a van.

    Done this multiple times using a scoop of clothes washing powder and hot water. ... nothing else needed. Scrub with a microfiber cloth and leave to dry.
