    Does anyone know the best way to clean alcantara heated seats ?
    Obviously I don't want to get them too wet due to the heating elements in the seat. Of course, I had to order the seats in white/ very light cream, so they show every mark.

    Iirc baby wipes are the thing to use.

    I use a slightly damp microfibre cloth on my Dinamica. Never needed to use anything else, even when my 2 year old was sick all over it! I normally do it fairly routinely, even when it’s not noticeably dirty.

    Swissvax Alcanta works well.

    Add concentrated lemon juice into warm water. rinse microfibre cloth in water, wipe Alcantara. Repeat a few times. Let Alcantara dry.

    has always worked well on my GT3’s steering wheel and seat centres.

    Many thanks for all your suggestions. Damp microfibre cloth seems to have worked. I only tried a small area at first to test, but will have a more concentrated effort on the other seat tomorrow. :D:D
