I don't think the search function likes me.

Anyway if this has been said elsehwere I couldn't find it. What are people using to clean the non leather insert parts of their Rercaros? I've noticed the yellow part of mine on the bottome half of the seat getting a little dirty. The spots where your thighs rest / rub up against when you are turning.

I use Autoglym Interior Shampoo. Works just fine. There are better products out there no doubt, but cleaning is more about procedure than product.

I have a clean boars hair brush (Swissvax I believe) that I will squirt some of the cleaner on. Then I will rub it into the areas that I am cleaning with the brush. Doing it this way cleans just as well, but it doesn't soak the area so it doesn't take forever to dry. If you spray it directly onto the fabric, this is fine too, but again it will take much longer to dry as you do not want to soak anything.

The worst thing you could do is soak the areas as the foam in the seat will absorb it and become musty or moudly.

I have also used a carpet brush and a bucket of water with an ounce of laundry detergent in it. Just dip the brush in the bucket and then shake the brush so that almost all the water is out of it. Then go to work on the area. This works great too, but didn't have quite the oomf that the interior cleaner has. If the staining is mild, than this might be the best.

Either way, after you work up the areas, grab a dry microfiber towel and blot the areas to pick up the junk.

I use this product:

Liquid Plant Pineapple Bromeliaceae

Just cover the leather with some rags/painters tape. Follow directions.

Then I clean the leather with this:

Good Luck

Thanks for all of the different options. I'll attempt to go at it with the brush and a bit of soap first to see how it turns out. If it doesn't do much then I'll attack it with some of those chemical cleaners. It's not very heavily stained at all. Most likely I think it's from me putting a towel down over the seat after I leave the gym ( don't want to get sweat all over the seats ! ) and it's rubbing off onto those areas.
