    My truck is an 88, and its been through its fair share of abuse/grease/mud/paint... I'm working on getting it cleaned back up because I let it go to shit over the past year (i lost interest in it mostly)

    My seatbelt is cake with grease and grime, and I would like to get it cleaned up as best as I can (a nice deep clean should get rid of everything and turn it to close to its original color)

    I've heard the suggestion of woolite, but I'm thinking it may not be strong enough, is there anything I could use to really deeply clean the seatbelt fiber and get these looking as good as I can?

    Best not to use anything harsh that would weaken the fibers. Having a dirty seatbelt is better than weakening it :hs:

    I am but at the same time am not worried about weakening it... Considering the lock mechanisms no longer work and theres no way to get a factory replacement (way to go GM)

    but it turns my white shirts colors :wtc:

    Use something like Simple Green, may not get them perfect but they should look better. Just don't use any harsh chemical cleaners.
