Seat belt cleaning

Hey fellahs,

While cleaning up my interior and making good progress I'm starting to notice the bits I haven't touched more and more and I'm now looking at the seat belts. They look to be in good condition , maybe a bit of sun fading in the usual places, but that's about it. Trouble is they are fairly dusty and a bit grimy in spots and I'm now wondering what's the best way to clean 'em, if at all. I'm looking at this cheapo interior cleaner that's been magic on the vinyl, but I'm a bit reluctant to dampen the belts with anything that could weaken them.

Have you guys needed to clean your seat belts, if so what have you used? Any cleaning products? or just played it safe and given them a good brush? I'd be interested to hear about it.

Re: Seat belt cleaning

try wiping with a wet cloth with just some water and mild detergent or shampoo.

have you used those microfibre cloths .? they look like a peice of soft towel but they will clean better just dampened with water than a lot of cemical cleaners do.
