Do you have large oil or other stains in your cars upholstery? We have an easy way to remove them with some simple cleaner and a little elbow grease. Get rid of all those ugly stains on your cars seats and the floor boards. Here is how!
Here is what you will need:
– Large Sponge
– Old Towels Or Wash Cloth
– Hot Water
– Large Bowl
– Large Bottle Of Clorox Green Works All Purpose Cleaner (Tuff Stuff Upholstery Cleaner Foam works great too!)
– Large Medium Bristle Scrub Brush
First get your bowl out. Pour 2 cups of all purpose cleaner into your bowl. (If you are using the cleaning foam, then just spray the foam onto the stain) Then fill your large bowl with hot water. Mix the solution up in the bowl with you scrub brush.
Next, use the all purpose cleaner directly on the stained area in your cars fabric. Leave sit for 5 minutes to let it soak in. Dip your sponge and brush into the hot soapy cleaning solution. Get as much of the cleaning solution on the brush and sponge. Now scrub the stain with the scrub brush until it disappears. Repeat if needed.
If your car stinks when you turn on the heat or air conditioning, find out here how to clean out the car AC system and replace the filter to make the smell go away.
If there are larger stains, use the sponge to get the stained area wet and ready for scrubbing. If the stain is still visible, repeat the process over.
You can use the Clorox Green Works All Purpose Cleaner or Tuff Stuff Upholstery Cleaner Foam right on the stain and let sit for 30 minutes if the stain consists of oil or another type of hard to remove grime.
While you are waiting for the cleaning solution to penetrate the stain, you can wipe down all your seats with the sponge with a little cleaning solution on it. Dip your sponge into the hot cleaning mixture often to remove all the dirt and grime that will come off all your seats.
Once you have done all this, leave car doors open to let the fabric dry so it won’t smell the next day. You can use a common house fan and place it in the car. Turn it on high and let it dry the car out with the car doors open.
At this time you could also check your cars air cabin filter to be sure it is clean.
