If leather, ,use a paper towel and some WD40. Be sure to wipe down the seat after with water.

i would think gum and adhesive remover would work pretty good also. not sure of the effects on either leather or cloth though

good chance you might break the fabric with it, id avoid it
try carbit cleaner, it worked well for me before on the seats
