Can anyone recommend anti-bacterial products for interior fabrics?

When I leave the gym and I'm all sweaty (especially in this weather) I'm aware that I'm sweating into my nice new seat fabrics (eugh!) Are there any products that help kill bacteria and protect the fabrics?

Gtechniq Technique l1 Smart Fabric has anti-bacterial properties.  Could be a good option for you.  I’ve used there version for leather which is good.

Or just take a shower before you leave the gym!!

GTechniq I1 is good though you would need to air and dry the seats once sprayed.

No showers at the gym unfortunately, and I only live 5 minutes drive away so bit of a ball ache to take towel, change of clothes, shampoo etc with me.

My temporary solution is to use the girlfriends car :)
