so i have a set of dc5 recaros in black and im trying to restore the black color as best as possible without dying. anyone have any recommendations to go about cleaning the suede material and bringing back its orginal color or close to.

*seats came out of my homies honda fit. already have new side bolster on the way.

I would be very careful about steam cleaning as I've read that it has actually faded the blacks and even turned the Si logos from red to a pink on the factory seats. Only suggestion I have would be to dye the seats

If you look around you will find plenty of guides on this. Try looking for something ITR/CTR related with cleaning recaros. It often involves a little Woolite and a brush.

yeah do it the old school way, like Mike si stated, some type of upholstery cleaner, a semi soft brush and some elbow grease, then just use a shop vac to pull out the nasty stuff after you've scrubbed it all clean.
