    Why leaving the doors open could drain the battery, how about leaving the window open? Sorry, I know nothing about car…just bought a second-hand car and want to remove the disgusting smells from seats. Thanks!

    Can I just switch off the lights when opening the doors for an extensive period of time so the battery doesn’t die? Or do I still have to disconnect the battery?

    I have one of these cloth seats and found that someone burned a hole with (I assume) a cigarette in one of the back seats :/ small hole where the fabric has melted. Any idea how to fix this? Is it even fixable?? I’ve seen fixes where they take fabric from somewhere else and glue it in but is there any other option?

    For leather cleaning there is no better stuff then glycerin soap. It is widely used for saddle cleaning in many stables as well as other leather stuff. You can also use oils and balsams designed for them or even paste. Many of them have anti mould characteristics.

    My leather seats are not shiny like that to begin with. Fairly new car. Should I use the same exact products? Also, how about a leather steering wheel? Clean them the same as you would the seats? I know you said not to put any sort of finish/ gloss on them bc IT'S A STEERING WHEEL! thanks

    @17:02 you can use a spray paint that is close to the color of the seat, spray it on a rag, use the other side of the rag and dip it in some pain thinner.. and rub it a few time on the seat. Works like a charm. Let it dry and then use a leather conditioner on it. Your welcome.

    So I got to ask, since you have the battery disconnected for 20 minutes to about two hours, what does this mean about the drive? Wouldn't the PCM be reset? I feel it's imperative that you mention the downsides of disconnecting your car's battery and removing your car's seats. You should use a memory saver.

    Hello handsome gloved limbs!... (yeah, I've noticed from previous videos you seem to be working out). I would have the front seats inclined to remove any dirt in that area underneath the back. But aside from that, perfect! However, and since I trust in most of your recommendations, do you recommend using ozone generators in the vehicle to "remove" odors and kill mold? I have recieved this recommendation but I'm not very keen on using it due to the risks of the gas itself. Ever used it? Would you give it a thumbs up? Please advice! cheers!
