Angry The inevitable first stain on cream cloth seat

Took the car up to Whistler this weekend (super fun going through the mountain turns) and took a small rock in the windshield--leaving a small chip-- and girlfriend somehow managed to get the passenger seat dirty. These things are bound to happen, but I was hoping a little later than 600 kms on the odometer. Anyway, seeing as I'll no doubt be struggling to keep our two-tone seats clean for some time to come, has anyone got any tried and true suggestions for cleaning stains, dirt, etc.?

Resolve in the spray pump, works absolute wonders. My wife spilled chicken sauce on the passenger seat, no trace of it now.

I have several stains after 5 months. The color they picked is beyond stupid.

Scotch-guard and crossed fingers...I like the colors but they're a stupid choice for a car...dogs, mtbike mud...I just might have to look into (gasp) seat covers....

I am completely OCD about the car because of the fabric choice.

here is my rule:

NOTHING BUT WATER.

Im not kidding.

We will see how long it lasts, but I cant think of anything thats going to make me change my mind.

my suggestion would be to first scotchguard the seats and then carry an upholstery cleaner with you inside the car. that way anytime you stain the seats you can attack it right away,

Katzkin makes a pretty nice set of leather replacement seat covers for the Subaru. Maybe they fit the 9-2X, also? On some of the Subaru boards...which I will leave nameless, lest I upset the mods again...they have group buys on Katzkin leather kits. You can save a couple hundred bucks that way...if you can catch a group buy in process. Just a thought...
