I have a silver canvas seat that also started showing stains as soon as I started using it. It would be neat if someone knows of a way to clean it, but the best solution I have found is to keep my rear end in the seat so nobody can see it.

Ive heard that hydrogen peroxide works , never tried it myself , said to use it straight . You may also try a paste made with baking soda and water . Haven't tried that one either.hope this helps my friend
