Chainringed the back seat of my beater... how to clean?
 
I managed to chainring (a few times) the back seat of my beater VW transporting my bike (yes I will buy a rack). Anyone know a good way to clean this stuff off the seat????

Try a little Dawn dishwashing soap ( takes grease out of your way). They used it here recently to clean an oil spill on a highway.

I'd try "Resolve", mostly because we have it in the house for spot cleaning the carpets.

Go to the paint store and buy a canvas drop cloth. They're cheap and durable and will save your car's seats from chain marks. Cheaper than a rack and they keep your bike inside and away from the weather, road grit and tempting the dishonest.

WD40. Spot spray, use a towel (paper or fabric) to dab, not wipe. The smell isn't overpowering, either. I've done it this way with a couple of rentals and they haven't been any the wiser.

What costs more - the beater VW or the Resolve?

Maybe time for a new beater.

I've used my chain cleaning fluid. I think it is a citrus based Finish Line product. Worked great.
