WARNING   WARNING:  Do not use cleaning solvents, bleach or dye on the vehicle's seatbelts, as these actions may weaken the belt webbing.
WARNING   WARNING:  On vehicles equipped with seat-mounted airbags, do not use chemical solvents or strong detergents. Such products could contaminate the side airbag system and affect performance of the side airbag in a crash.

Note:   Follow the same procedure for cleaning leather seats when cleaning leather interior.   See   Cleaning Leather Seats
Note:   Do not use household cleaning products or glass cleaners, which can stain and discolor the fabric and affect the flame retardant abilities of the seat materials.
For fabric, carpets, cloth seats, safety belts and seats equipped with side airbags:
  • Remove dust and loose dirt with a vacuum cleaner.
  • Remove light stains and soil with Motorcraft® Professional Strength Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner.
For grease or tar stains:
  • Spot clean the area with Motorcraft® Spot and Stain Remover. In Canada, use Motorcraft® Multi-Purpose Cleaner.
  • If a ring forms on the fabric after spot cleaning, clean the entire area immediately, but do not oversaturate or the ring will set.
