I used an equivalent machine. Google Best at Hire, they were the cheapest I could find to hire one of these machines.

My car didnt look too dirty to start with, but as soon as I did one seat the water was coming out black and the pattern in the fabric really started to come out.

I used ValetPro Heavy Duty Carpet Cleaner in my machine. I also used it in a spray bottle. The spray bottle had somewhat warm water with the solution at something like 10% concentration. Sprayed that all over the area first then I brushed it thoroughly with a really stiff carpet brush. Then in the machine it was the whole tank with around 150ml of VPHDCC added in if I remember correctly. The machine had hot water in it. This method is one of the best in my opinion. Just remember to go over the area a lot with the vacuum without spraying water to get as much water as possible out of the seats.

I did mine about a month and a half ago. I used the machine between around 11am and 3pm, left the windows half open for the rest of the day and closed them at night. By the next day the seats were dry. As long as you keep going over the same spot over and over with the machine with lots of pressure until it absolutely cannot pick up any more water, then the seats should be able to mostly dry by the next day.

I used AG hi foam shampoo and that worked well. Mine are now protected with Gyeon Fabric Coat! Great stuff!

The bissell spot shampoo cleaner seems to be the best value/performance product. Its small as well so doesnt take up too much space. It can also be used just for drying carpets and seats after using other car shampoos on them. The cheapest i have seen them for in the uk is just under £110.
