Mine were particularly bad :(, so I made up a paste of soap powder and water for the really bad bits and then used a hard bristled scrubbing brush and then sponge to finish off, worked great :D
If your going to jet wash them, might be worthwhile "pre-treating" them with soap powder (or liquid...were still in the stone age and use powder I: )
Smell nice too LOL:T:

Go to Halfords and they do some Turtle wax stuff in a spray can with a hard yellow brush attached to the cap. I used that, follow the instructions. Its well good.

I used 1001 upholstery cleaner (the one with the scrubbing brush on the lid). 2 cans at 2.00 each, and did the whole interior. Came up much better, and smelt nicer too! :)

got my new seats from the scrappy and he said jet wash them then use a carpet shampooer to get the rest of the water out... so same as above/ a bit further up

well you could take the seat off the seat base, the squab off the runners, the covers off the foam and stick 'em in the washing machine on a quick wash....job done - works once for me, the cardboard stiffeners that tension the upholstery deteriorates once wet....and now the seat is grubby again!
