How do I clean car upholstery?

Asked by gailcalled (54575points) March 27th, 2007
I have cloth seats and managed to spill the contents of a burrito (black beans, salsa, rice, cheese) on passenger seat while trying to eat and drive. Stupid, I know. By the time I got home, mess had dried up. I scraped off solid material and used a dust buster. But there still are some stains (car is only yr old and has less than 6500 miles so I am trying to keep it pristine).

an auto parts store will have many choices for leather or vinyl cleaner. these work fine, can be pricey. Many people use too much and do not remove the excess. I have found for general cleaning that Simple Green works for most interior surfaces. It comes as concentrate that is diluted and I spray and wipe. It will work on the cloth interior. try spraying on let sit for 5 min., then use a firm clean toothbrush and scrub than spray on clean water (distilled is best-no minerals) and vigorously blot the spot. a repeat may be necessary.
