Woolite seems to work pretty well. Give it a Google search as there's been a few threads covering how to clean seats already mate

I used to use Woolite. The last couple of times I used Sonax Alcantara cleaner. I think it's the best cleaner on the market for our seats and it's specifically made for it unlike Woolite which is a generic cleaner. I use to microfiber towels and two buckets of water. Both towels get dunked into each bucket. You can soak the entire seat with water before you clean. Use one bucket ("dirty bucket") first, take that damp towel. Spray the Sonax in sections of the seat at a time. Massage the product with the towel nicely in the section. Put the towel back in the dirty bucket to wring it out. Then transfer that towel over to the "clean" bucket to restart the process on another section. The second towel is only needed if you decide to not soak the entire seat down with water beforehand. The second towel it used to dampen the section of the seat before you use the other towel with the Sonax.

This looks great thanks

so just to make sure:
1 dampen the full seat first
2 spray detergent on and massage in
3 wring out towel with dirty bucket
4 get towel wet again with clean bucket
5 repeat the process
