If you have purchased a stain remover from the store, test in a small invisible corner to see whether it will damage the upholstery. If nothing happens, apply it boldly on the stains.
Another useful advice which you should follow is to pre-treat stains on leather interior. That means you have to apply leather conditioner in advance before using the stain remover. The stain remover should stay on the leather interior not more than 30 seconds. Actually, if you have leather interior, it means you have spent extra money on this luxury. Don’t put your leather upholstery at risk by applying different cleaning products. Leave cleaning leather interior to professional cleaners who have the appropriate equipment and preparations.
For coping with coffee stains you should apply cold water. Wipe the liquid after that and then apply glass cleaner. Glass cleaner is much more powerful product than you think. It can achieve amazing results not only for making your glass clean but also in removing stubborn stains from your car upholstery. However, if the coffee stain is still visible after you have used glass cleaner, you may try another method for cleaning. You can apply dishwashing liquid on the stain and rinse it with warm water. Blot the stain with paper towels. You may open the windows of the car to speed up the drying process or you can use a hair drier. If you have chosen the second option, pay attention not to hold the hair drier too close to the surface.
When you are trying to remove liquids from your interior, always blot them. Don’t apply too much pressure and don’t rub the stains.
Vomit stains are one of the most common types of stains in vehicles. Many people feel dizzy, especially when they are sitting on the back seats. Vomit stains on the seats occur very often when you have small children. It is very important to clean those stains as soon as possible. You can use wet wipes to clean them immediately. They will help you to wipe the excess vomit. Clean the place with cold water. After that, wash the stain with warm water and soap. To eliminate the bad vomit odor, spread some baking soda on the stain and leave it to act for several hours. The better would be if you cover all the seats with baking soda. That way you will refresh the upholstery and will remove all the stains (or at least most of them).
If there are blood stains on the upholstery, you must not apply hot water or soap on them. Blood stains are difficult for removing, so if you cannot handle the problem by yourself, you’d better call ProLux Cleaning and schedule a professional car upholstery cleaning procedure.
For cleaning fabric upholstery, you may use the following mixture that gives excellent results: mix water and dishwashing liquid – equal amounts – and pour the solution in a spray bottle. Spray the stains, keeping the bottle 6 – 8 inches away from the upholstery. Use a soft brush to rub the stain extremely gently. Don’t press too hard! Rinse the place with a clean cloth, damped in warm water. Finally, use a microfiber cloth to dry the cleaned places.
Another cleaning idea you can benefit from is to mix soap, borax and hot water cleaner. You can add 10 drops of lavender oil if you want your car to smell very pleasant at the end of the car upholstery cleaning procedure. Apply the foam on the upholstery, by using a soft-bristled brush. At the end, rinse with warm water, using a rug.
You can use an old toothbrush for cleaning the corners of the upholstery and seams. These are the most typical places that collect dirt and dust.
For vinyl upholstery, it is best to use glass cleaner or mixture of baking soda and water. Both methods will guarantee you excellent results!
