The alcantara portion of my seats had gotten quite a few little fuzz boogers in the material. It still looked OK as long as you didn't look to close at them. I had an old Norelco 3 head cordless shaver & I enlarged the slots to about 3 times the original size & gave my seats a fresh shave. I wasn't sure if it would work well or not. I tried it on a real small spot & held my breath. It eneded up making the seats look very near to new. Nice smooth material again with no visible wear. :thumbup:

They sell "sweater shavers" at fabric and department stores for sweaters that get little pills on them too. I'm sure those would work as well. Great tip!

I tried a fabric shaver, it pretty much ruined the section I tried it on.

I had looked at the fabric shavers, that's actually what gave me the idea to try, they looked like they were too open & might screw up the fabric. With the electric shaver you have a lot more control with how close you get. I couldn't see a single mark from it, just made the little boogers go away.
