    Got any good ideas for cleaning seatbelts?

    Mine are getting pretty gross. They weren't the cleanest things in the world when I got the truck and now that they've gotten muddy multiple times and have been cleaned with a toothbrush multiple times... they need more help. The passenger one usually stays clean but my copilot last time had no inclination to wear the f'ing seatbelt and kept leaving the f'ing window open.

    Got any success stories? Products?

    Have you tried simple green? Haven't tried it in that application, but it seems to be harmful to nothing, and a lot of people have sworn by it for mildew, etc., so I'd think it would be worth a shot?

    Of course, you can always use dishwashing soap and a fingernail brush, that should get the soap worked into the fabric too.

    Try using a hand cleaner like GOOP with a stiff bristled brush or tooth brush. If it'll take stains out of clothes then it should clean seat belts too. Just don't use anything that may hurt the nylon like color safe bleach.

    Ive removed mine and handwashed them in warm water in the sink with very little dish soap. They come remarkably clean. I would be hesitant to use a chemical on them or a stiff brush /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I second the Simple Green. If you can get em off, throw em in the wash machine with some <font color="green"> SG </font>
