Tricks for tricky stains from our Toyota Service Center in Orlando!
What kind of stain do you have in your car? Our Toyota Service Team in Orlando selected some of the most common stains found in cars. Here are our Orlando Toyota Service Techs tricks to get them off your car!
Spray either hairspray or a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water on the stain. Using a damp cloth blot it carefully! This should get rid of it.
Greasy and Oily Stains
Use a watered-down paint thinner and a cotton cloth. Test the paint thinner on your upholstery to ensure it won't ruin it. Mix a small amount of the paint thinner with the same amount of water. Dab the cotton cloth in the mix and blot it into the stain. Dust salt or cornmeal on the stain and let it sit overnight. Vacuum the stain in the morning.
If you've spilled coffee on your way to work, don't stress! Our Orlando Toyota Service Team will help you get it out! Apply cold water on the stain to help dilute it. With a paper towel blot the stain, and then apply glass cleaner. Let the cleaner sit for about 5 minutes. Blot again with a paper towel.
If the coffee stain is still visible, scrub it with dishwashing liquid and use warm water to rinse. Blot again with paper towels. Use a hair dryer to dry the spot.
If someone gets car sick and vomits in the car, you should react quickly before it settles in the upholstery! Wipe away the vomit and dilute the stain with cold water. Use mild soap and warm water to wash the contaminated area. Lastly, blot the stain with club soda to neutralize it.
