Yes. There are so many different types of cloth seats and they all react differently. Well, react isn’t the right word. We can shampoo any type of cloth seat, but some cloth seats really hold on to stains more than others.
The biggest trend in cloth seats is a certain material that is made to be sporty and “water-resistant.” However, what actually happened is they made a seat that is hard to remove stains from because it doesn’t want to absorb water. These are mainly found in your budget-friendly Toyotas, Hondas, and Hyundais and some slightly older model F150s.
Does that mean it’s impossible? Not at all. We can usually get most of the stain out and we will most likely have to steam clean it, but it all just depends on how long the stain has sat in and the general condition of the car.
