  • This has happened to me many times unfortunately. Take the seat out of the car and bring it to the hose. Spray a lot of Mr. Clean (or whatever cleaner you have). Wash thoroughly with sponge. Then hose off completely and leave in sun to dry. It might take a while to get really dry.

  • You could also try wiping them down with a washcloth soaked with vinegar.

  • Febreeze. Did you scrub the straps with a toothbrush??
