Excessive Dust/lint On Seats

9 posts in this topic

My car has standard cloth seats and since I acquired the car I have been experiencing an excessive buildup of dust/lint whatever on the seats. It is the driver seat that is most affected but the rear seats (seldom used) seem free of it. I'm wondering if the aircon is somehow charging the air and thereby the dust which then makes it adhere to the fabric. It's damn annoying and unsightly. I live in a flat so can't get a mains-powered vacuum to give it a good regular brushing and my battery-powered dustbuster soon runs out of oomph.

Does anyone else have this problem? Have you found a way to solve it? If yes, then please tell me.

Take it to a petrol station and bang a quid in one of their vacuum cleaners.

Seat cover? umm wear a shell suit -- are you tumble drying your clothes ? that causes a lot of lint (tumble dryer filters are always clogged)what about using one of those brushes that remove pet hairs from furniture..cant think of anything to stopit happening other than the tumble dryer

Thanks for all your suggestions but I was rather hoping for a preventative measure rather than short-lived cures.

I don't think there is a preventative measure. Cloth and velour tend to accumulate static and will attract lint and dust. Regular vacuuming is the only real answer and if that's not practical for you one of the alternatives already mentioned is probably your only recourse.

I didn't have a problem like this with any of my previous cars - even the air-conditioned ones! Most strange.

No more replies needed but thanks to those who did.
