How to clean your seatbelts....

I have come up with an awesome way to clean seat belts (at least those that can be detached from the car easily.) It will require simple green cleaner, dish soap, and warm water. To prepare the seat belts remove them and spray with simple green (set it to foam if you can.) Then wipe them.

Then find 2 buckets. In one bucket, fill it with warm water, some simple green, and a little squeeze of dish washing soap. Take the belt and let soak for a few hours. After letting soak, remove from mixture and put in a second bucket filled with just water (this will serve to remove the cleaner from the belt.) Let sit in bucket for 10-15 minutes while agitating the belt. Remove belt from water and let dry. Your belt should be looking new again!

Here are some pictures of what these belts looked like before and after.
(this is kinda a before shot, i didnt take a picture of the cleaned belt, but this one was slightly dirty, you can see how it was a little brown)


Dirty cleaning mixture


Dirty Agitated mixture




After picture of the center belt. It was stained terribly, dark brown from cola stains and coffee stains. Now it looks new!

and for the ones that cant be removed, or you don't want to go through the hassle of the front ones, you can pull them all the way out and then clamp them so they stay out. then just let them soak in the buckets the same way.

Excellent, this might come in handy to get the grease and tzatziki sauce that's on my belts. Damn Gyros drop so much when you eat and drive.

Shawarma is not gyros!

True gyros comes off a spinning rod and is in straight peices... NOT CHUNKS of meat..

Shawarma is small chunks of meat which is either Chicken or Beef,a nd true shawarma should NOT come off a spinning rod.

i wouldnt, but you could possibly take the whole seat belt assembly out of your car, and just let the belt soak. You could then just clean the upper portion with a spray and let it soak, it should work just the same.
