    For those of you with small kids, I am sure you struggle with the back of your front seatbacks getting very dirty from their shoes and I just can't keep it clean. I have a 2 and 5 year old, and it pretty much needs to be cleaned every day. Are there any aftermarket wraps or protectors for this area? I saw Tsportline had something, but not looking to spend thousands of dollars on this temporary problem.

    Ours is just as bad as yours and I gave up after about a month going back and cleaning it over and over. Also, my wife's car is a lease, so I stopped caring about it.

    Aren't there like $35-40 seat back protections on Amazon or you could have it wrapped and you would only need to wipe it down or I wouldn't show at all.

    All of cars have this problem. I just use a wet rag to wipe it down... and it looks like new afterwards.

    I use the same ones @dragonxt linked to.
    The bottom strap doesnt reach around the seat so I just used some double sided tape

    When I first got my car I had a "shoes off in the car" rule.
    Not much damage they can do with socks.
    The rule has since lapsed...

    My daughter sits on the passenger side, and I usually drive solo with her, so when she is in there I put the front passenger seat all the way forward.
    Which is why I keep begging.... *please give us position memory on the passenger seat also, or add an express forward button to the seat, please!*
    I do have passengers, and they have to put the seat back, then I pickup my daughter and put the seat forward, then passengers again, then my daughter again, etc, etc ,etc...
