Default Del Sol Seat Covers - Dirty Stains

Previous owner left some stains on my Sol seat covers. I was wondering how I can pull them out so that I can wash them.
I am not interested in buying new covers....

When I looked at them this morning, they had some hooks attached to a liner piece coming out between the seat and back support. I was not able to unhook them.

Can someone please tell me how I can easily take off the seat covers?

They do not come off easily.

You have to bend those hooks off in order to pull them off. I know Honda sells sets of the hooks, but I can't imagine they'll be much fun to put back on, old ones or new.

Wow..I tried to bend those hooks but it was too hard. I didn't think it was going to be that hard..

This is why people usually just steam clean them on the seat.

These covers are meant to be permanent, so they won't be easy to remove at all.

If you take them off, when you put them back on you're gonna need some spray adhesive to keep them snug on the seat
