Gym goers: What do you put on your seats for the ride home??

I have what's known as a "sweat" problem. Anyone know of a decent alternative to ghetto-rigging a towel to sit on for the ride home? Or does everyone just wallow in it?

You could always move from a ghetto-gym to one with nice shower facilities

LOL it's an Army gym with adequate facilities, but I'd rather shower at home then with a bunch of dudes.

My Ass, usually. I sometimes like to put my head on the seat first sometimes to see if I can drive with my legs.

Cool. That's a lot easier/cheaper. It is leather.

I put a bath towel from seat-back all the way down to the cushion. It's more difficult to clean body oils off leather over time.

My last car had cloth seats, and I did not do the towel thing and over 5 years, it didn't smell bad or discolor as they were blue Recaro sport fabric. But with leather you got to be careful.

I use a nice clean towel...

FYI - make sure you are not using fabric softener on it, or the oil will sink in the seat!
