    I've tried to remove it with upholstery cleaner, but it's too stubborn and wasn't removed at all. I think it's a very old coffee stain. Does anyone know what I can use to remove it?

    The easiest option is probably just a new seat. Hang out on eBay for a while and a seat from the same car with the same upholstery should pop up for a decent price. Couple of bolts and just swap them over.

    Too much money/effort

    This is what somebody else told me to do. I think I'll give it a shot.

    Some sort of bio washing powder would be a good start - let it sit in a bit.

    ... and take your mates car next time you go dogging.

    If your car is a few years old then a new seat is like £20, and most cars are like 10 minutes to swap the front seats over. Waaaaay less effort than deep cleaning stains IMO!

    Always best to do it while they're fresh, but as has been said you could try a carpet cleaner.

    I tend to use laboratory grade sanitary equipment to remove stains but whatever works is fine.

    Uh oh, did someone get some population paste on the backseat whilst doing the dirty? Always put down a towel or a sheet first.
