Go buy the cheapest, gaudiest contact paper you can find. Peel the back off and apply it sticky side down. Lift up, and ta da!

get a nice vacuum cleaner with a bristled tip attachment. rub and scrape all over. this will help some, but alot of it will have to come out in another fashion. ie: contact paper.

Duct tape is good, but the contact paper will cover a larger area at a time, making the job quicker.

I used to own and run an auto detail shop awhile back (back in 96) and we used to use those cheapy sticky lint roller things.The ones that you can keep pealing back.Went pretty fast with one of those.After going over it with that we would just use the attachment from the vacuum for upholstery cause it would pick up whatever the brush loosened up. If you have a shop vac the attachment from you house vacuum should fit on it.

I know all the tricks for making a car look new again (could never tell by looking at mine though:) )

Get a latex glove like you'd use for washing dishes. Put it on and rub it across the seat. My friend used them and they worked wonders.

This may sound odd, but those 'Pet Hair Removal" sponges you see actually work, and work very well! I had a hard time with dog fur on my velour seats until I tried one of these and now I keep one in my glove box. I highly recommend it!
