Default Cleaning seats

Hi all.

My front seats are pretty filthy. I didn't realise how bad until a water bottle leaked on them and left a huge gross water mark. Upon closer inspection, they're filthy.

Can anyone recommend a hireable wet and dry vac solution for the task?
I was thinking the Rug Dr but I don't think they have the ability to do seats or small areas.

Any ideas?

Use this:

While the basic Ford Six was code named Barra, the Turbo version clearly deserved its very own moniker – again enter Gordon Barfield.
We asked him if the engine had actually been called “Seagull” and how that came about.
“Actually it was just call “Gull”, because I named it that. Because we knew it was going to poo on everything”.

I just hired the bunnings shampoo machine for my wifes Territory the day after we bought it. Worked pretty well, but those seats were well past disgusting, boarding on an entirely new life form. A few days later we chucked them. The rest of the carpets turned out well, we didn't chuck those, which is saying a lot.

I have a Tornador Z-020 Black I bought off eBay 3 or 4 years ago.

You need a compressor but it does a great job at cleaning interiors that are in an awful mess without leaving a lot of wet residue.

I can't remember what I paid for it and you'd have to offset it with the cost of hiring something to see if it's worthwhile.

I've only used it the once as I've never had anything that dirty since that couldn't be cleaned with products like the Bowden stuff linked above.
