I bet I'm not the only one that read that as "buttocks"

Use a plant misting spray and bare hands. A quick spray of water then just rub your hand over it. This brings all the fluff and hair out but does not wet the seats.

If you don't believe me stroke the cat/dog with wet hands. It works ace and is nearly free.


My torque was vectored. Now I've none.

Not a success!

It is the rear Wheel arches where it really sticks. As I said its like a fish hook in the fibres.

tried the lot, Stiff brushes, Dyson, dyson Turbo Brush, this Sticky "Donkey Dirt" I bought of the net.

The only way I think is to take it out with a pair of tweezers.

I'm goiung to try Gareths Bot Horsie stuff.

For this reason I have leather seats. The old foz had the velour and I had a dalmatian. Oh my Lord how I tried to remove that hair. Never did work. The place I traded it to in said - 'we'll get that out no problem'. I wonder if they ever did.

Phew, glad they did the trick. Been a while since I had a need for them, but remember them being effective.

Does this technically mean I have helped someone on a forum?!

One other thing works surprisingly well - a 'Lint Brush' I inherited from my parents - like the one shown in the following site:

Why you need a lint brush | Analogue Chic



Its essentially a directional velvet brush - which is smooth in one direction, but catches lint and pet hairs when run in the other direction.
