    I brought food for the guys at work and the vinegar leaked onto my passenger seat probably a few tablespoons.. I didn't have napkins or anything and I'm stuck at work until 1:30... how can I clean this?

    You have leather seats? Some use vinegar and water to clean their leather seats and the smell will go away once dry. If not already done, get some toliet paper or something from work and at least dry it up if possible. I don't think you will have a stain unless it is something like vinegar based BBQ sauce.

    Depends on if its red or white. Vinegar is actually used as a cleaning agent a lot of times, for many different things. Granted its normally thinned out with some water. I'd just get a wet rag and blot it over and over and then repeat with a dry one. The smell will probably be around for a while as its soaked into the foam cushion by now. May be some way to use baking soda on it :anonymous:

    The worst thing about cloth seats and any wetness on them. If the seats had dirt on the cloth and it gets wet it will leave a ring where the dirt migrated due to the moisture. To get rid of this you will need to clean the entire seat.

    The key to removing water stains from cloth or fabric car seats is to focus on more than just the stains. In order to really clean them, you’ll have to tackle the whole seat. Fortunately, the process is an easy one.

    1. Begin by vacuuming the seats using a vacuum with attachments. This will remove any loose dirt or debris. (If loose dirt is left on the seats, it will turn to mud when moistened and cause additional stains.)
    2. Spray the dry foam cleaner on the seats. Cover the entire seat, not just the areas with water stains.
    3. Brush the foam over the sprayed areas, working it gently into the fabric. Avoid scrubbing too hard with the brush as it can damage the surfaces of some cloth upholsteries.
    4. Wipe away the foam with a clean, dry towel.

    • Before you begin, spot test the dry foam in a hidden area. This will ensure there are no unwanted effects to the color or texture of the fabric.
    • If the cloth surface is “stiff” after it dries, vacuum over the surfaces to restore the original texture.
