I have some seat belts that could stand cleaning, and restoration. They are rather stiff, but appear strong. What have others done to renew seat belts?

I wrapped the metal ends in washcloths with nylon tie-wraps, and washed them in the regular washer & dryer in "delicate cycle". It worked just fine.
Do it when your wife's not home.

For my Bus I cleaned them with soap and water and simple green and scrubbed them with a brush.
I then laid them out in the sun to dry.
They got a lot cleaner and are more flexible.

Use a degreaser or Floex (carpet cleaner) and a steamer. That is the best way I have found to do them. Go over to autogeek.net and do a search.
