TigerTough vs. Grease: How to get grease out of a seat cover

TigerTough vs. Grease: How to get grease out of a seat cover

So does grease come out of TigerTough seat covers? The short answer is...heck yeah it does! Watch this torture test to see what we mean:

Here's what we did:

    • Went to town with a grease gun on a seat cover installed in a vehicle in a TigerTough employee vehicle. 10/10 recommend for fun. 
    • Smeared that grease around for good measure.
    • Tried to wipe off the excess grease with a paper towel, but that just smeared it around more.
    • Sprayed degreaser all over the stain.
    • Scrubbed.
    • Repeated steps 4 and 5.

Boom! The stain came out and the seat underneath was totally unaffected. We'd recommend washing the affected pieces in the washing machine after removing the stain, just for good measure. Normally we say to wash in cold, but if you're dealing with grease, turn that water to warm.

If you're looking to remove grease stains from upholstered seats (not seat covers) you can try these steps, but we aren't experts so don't blame us if something goes wrong. We'd suggest you clean the seat the best you can and then add seat covers to protect from any future stains.  

Disclaimer: Yes, we tested this on black seat covers, so results may vary based on seat cover color. We only have so many employees willing to let us torture their seats for the sake of content.
