Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Pushes the Limits #NewSantaFe

"The YES Essentials® fabric treatment is standard in all models with cloth seating, and is perfect for dads & moms. It provides soil-resistance, anti-odor and antistatic properties. Take a look – the spills just bead up for ease of clean-up, instead of being absorbed into the fabric. (Take that kids and pets!)" Read more.

Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

"The standard cloth seats have fabric from YES Essentials®, and it is resistant to water, stains, odor and bacteria. I did a test spill of milk, and it quickly beaded up instead of absorbing into the fabric. Cleanup was easy so the risk of mysterious, lingering odors was minimized. The YES upholstery isn't new—Chrysler uses it in a few of its vehicles—but it's new to Santa Fe, and parents will love it." Read more.

My standard clean-up supplies of baby wipes and paper towel haven't been at all successful in removing the spilled Slurpees, apple juice, chocolate milk, the dropped Tootsie Pops, the french fries, etc." Read more.
