How to wash TigerTough seat covers

How to wash TigerTough seat covers

You've just tackled a particularly challenging plumbing job you’d rather not talk about. You toss your tool bag, damp with a mix of water and who-knows-what, right onto the passenger seat of your truck. The next morning, you're greeted with the stench and stains of yesterday’s battle. But hey, no sweat – you've got those TigerTough seat covers ready to take on whatever your day throws at them, even the aftermath of plumbing triumphs.

Can you wash the seat covers? Absolutely!

Let's get straight to it, your TigerTough seat covers are made from washable CORDURA® built to be thrown in the wash. Had a rough week with spills and grime? No problem. Here’s how to freshen them up:

Basic Cleaning Steps:

  1. Wipe It Down: For everyday messes, a quick wipe with a damp cloth does wonders.
  2. Spot Cleaning: Got some stubborn soil? Attack it with a spray cleaner or a mix of detergent and water. Avoid bleach, it's not your cover’s friend.
  3. Toss in the Washing Machine: Yep! You can toss those suckers in a household washing machine. But before you do, coil the straps and secure them with rubber bands to avoid a tangle fest. Then, toss the covers in. Use a mild detergent and set it to a low-temperature cycle.
  4. Drying: Let them air dry or tumble dry with no heat. Make sure they’re totally dry before installing them again.

For the Tough Stains

If you've had a run-in with oil or stubborn stains, Citrol or any citrus-based cleaner is your go-to. Give the spot a good scrub, then toss the cover in the wash for a full clean. Try an all-purpose cleaner or other favorite stain remover for other stains.

Creative Cleaning

We’ve seen TigerTough users get pretty creative when it comes to cleaning their covers – brake cleaner, paint thinner, and even folks power-washing their seat covers. While we don’t officially recommend these methods, do what you gotta do to get your covers clean. And hey, we’ve always got your back with that unlimited warranty. The warranty won’t cover the stains themselves (since those don’t affect the function of the cover), but it covers any and all structural damage to the cover.

Taking Them Off and Putting Them Back On

We won’t sugarcoat it: taking off and replacing your TigerTough seat covers can be a bit of a workout. They’re designed for a snug, perfect fit, so they hug your seats tight. But hey, no pain, no gain, right? Think of it as a small price to pay for keeping your ride looking sharp and protected.

Ready to Ride

There you have it: keeping your TigerTough seat covers clean is a breeze with some elbow grease and the right approach. Got a weird stain or need some tips? Hit us up. We’re always here to help you keep your covers and truck in top-notch condition.
