I have leather seats so can't help you too much on the seats. For the carpets though, remove them - should take no longer than 30 minutes. Put them outside and spray them down with a hose and then wash with any detergent/soap/washing powder of your choice using a broom. I used washing powder and the results are very good.

It's a Jeep, It's Topless, Get out the Pressure Washer. It will dry in about
an hour to eight.

Get some simple green and a brush you can use on carpet.

Vacuum the seats/carpet and get the loose stuff up. Then dilute some SG in a bucket of water, scrub the carpets, and then vacuum the water up with a wet/shop vac. Pull the carpet out to dry. Dont go too heavy on the seats, you dont want the cushioning to absorb too much water.

You can substitute another cleaner that isnt too harsh for SG, but I cant think of any other then carpet shampoo right now.

If you live in a warmer climate you could pull the drain plugs and drive throught the carwash topless?

Kidding... I'd take the carpet out like mentioned above, hose it down, and scrub it with a mild detergent.
