mazda 6 car waterproof seat covers

Hello everyone, this is my first post here!

I bought the 2020 Mazda 6 base edition sedan last year. The seats are cloth and not waterproof. The ice and rain on my coat can seep through and may cause molds? I am just concerned about this and want to protect my car seats with good waterproof covers. Could someone please suggest me of custom fit car covers that I could buy or some place I can go to get it installed.

Bonus question: What car seat covers do you have for your Mazda 6?

Cheers!

Take off your clothes before you get in the car. Problem solved.

Tbh I don't think that small amount of snow/ice can cause mold. I've accidentally left my windows open for two thunderstorms and after a year there's still no mold.

If you are really worried you can get this and put in your car: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/concro ... 1000838196. I used it after leaving the windows open. The seats (although not cloth) dried up after a few days.

Remember that your car is not completely sealed. So moisture in the air can go into your cabin, and moisture in the cabin can get out too.

Unless you work outdoor and always have large amount of snow/ice on your coat, then use er34er34's advice, take the coat off before getting in.
Facts are dirty. You can either believe it or live in your sweet dreams.

If this were actually possible to grow mold from ice and snow, don’t you think every car with a cloth interior (which is most, btw) ever sold would have this issue? Stop worrying.

Is your super worried about it look at fia seat covers they are custom fit to your vehicle and look factory. They offer different options and different types of protection. I installed their “neo” cover in the rear seats for the kids suppose to be the most durable/waterproof cover they offer

this isn't even an issue. Cars look fully enclosed. But they are actually very well ventilated. There's gaps everywhere I bet if you add up all the gaps in a car it'll be the size of a passenger window.

Like the air filter to vents. Whenever you have them off, it doesnt actually do a 100% air tight seal. Just a little flap of plastic deflecting the air back.
