    This has probably already been covered, but I haven't been able to find it in this forum.

    What does everyone think is the best way to clean the ventilated seats? I tend to get stuff stuck in all the little holes and it's tough to clean. I have been using a plastic dental tool and individually going through every whole that is stopped up. Is there a better way?

    I've had some good luck using a vacuum with a really small tip, and it gets most of it. You'll still have to go back with something small like you've been using though on some of it.

    I use a stencil brush to clean the perforations which you can get at Home Depot for a couple bucks. Spray a small amount of cleaner into the brush head and work in small circles. Your cleaner should create a lather and you can apply a little pressure to get into the perforations. Wipe the surface with a towel and use a vacuum to suck out any excess moisture.

    The key is using a small amount of cleaner so you don’t create a mess. If you use too much you can turn the seats on to dry it out.
