Easy DIY Car Upholstery Stain Remover

Do you have kids in car seats? In my experience I have found this equation to be very, very true: Kids + Car Seats = Stains for days. The other day, I was cleaning my car out and removed the booster seats. What I saw mortified me. Stains, melted chocolate, spilled red juice, and the smell, we are not even going there.

I called around to some local car detailers and I WAS NOT going to pay almost $200 for someone to clean my seats. I have tried using my steam cleaner on them before and it only took about 3% of the stains away AND left me with water spots everywhere.  Not exactly what I was going for.

So I did some research and I found the perfect solution! This really worked well for me. You may have to tweak the amounts a little bit (but equal parts of each should get you really close!).

What You Need:

  • Club Soda
  • Blue Dawn Dish Soap
  • Vinegar
  • Scrub Brush
  • Spray Bottle
  • Shop Vac/Steam Cleaner

I grabbed a heavy duty spray bottle and added in equal parts of club soda, Dawn, and vinegar. My spray bottle was pretty big so I used 1 cup of each of the ingredients. Some of you are worried that this was too much Dawn, but it the amount that I use. You can try less if you’d like, and if you do, let us know in the comments below how it worked! Make sure to shake it pretty good to get it all mixed up.
