That will protect your health and also the environment, because the wastewater will be less harmful.

For fiber seats use water and baking soda with lemon. That will take out the stains better than any cleaner.
Lot of people chooses to use carwash instead of manual washing. In most of the carwashes the water is being used unreasonably, beside they use very strong, toxic chemicals for cleaning.
