Hmmm... I can't believe the steam cleaner didn't help .As far as the white stains, that's why it's important to test a small, inconspicuous spot in case it messes up the cloth. This way you don't ruin your entire seat. I would take it to a detailing place and see if they think they could get the seats clean.

Cleaners make more of a mess on the Vibe's seats than the stain did. Blotting it with a clean towel and some club soda might help.
