Upholstery stain / odor
 
This is technically not for the Ram but I thought it fit better here than in the off topic / other vehicle forum.

My wife and I took her little cousin to Universal studios this weekend to see the Harry Potter theme park. Apparently we let her drink to much pop and even though we all went to the restroom before we left the park she had an accident in the back in the car. Between the Theme park leaving traffic and the construction in Orlando we did not make the first rest stop quickly enough.

In any case, after much cleaning with water, white vinegar, and a pet odor remover there is still a lingering odor and water mark on the seat.

Anyone else had to deal with this (anyone with young kids etc., I'm appealing to you)? Do tell. Please, I'm all ears.

There are many good products out there that will do the trick.I personally use 303 products.

I've used the 303 UV protectant but that's obviously not the correct product for this application. Any recommendation for this.

This is what I use... Used it on the GF's car last weekend to take everything from Soda and coffee stains out to dried Chocolate out of the floor carpet. This shit works like a charm!

303 makes a cleaner / spot remover. if there is anything better I have not seen it.

Cleaning the foam is the only way you will completely remove the odor. However, you can mask it. I have used Woolite OxyDeep, Stoners carpet cleaner, and APC's to remove stains, and oder neutralizers to remove the stench. In all honesty, if you "can" remove the foam, that would be the best way to clean it. If not, try t get an odor neutralizer so you aren't just "masking" it, but neutralizing it.

The problem of course isen't the surface stain so much as the deep inside odor (which is still lingering). Luke you kind of hit the nail on the head, but I don't think there is a reasonable way to remove the foam to wash it (at least not one that won't require reappholstry afterward). I might try more of the pet remove (it uses an enzyme to eat odor causing organic substances) and really saturate the seat. I just hope I can then get all the cleaning agent back out as well.

Have you checked to make sure she didn't go all the way through to the floor . Maybe theres a puddle under the seat .

GPSHSLAX 10-19-2010 12:16 AM

I have not ... but I'm not really sure how to do it with her car. I don't really know how to describe other than the floor slopes up to the bottom of the seat rather than the seat having legs. Does this make sense? There doesn't seem to be any way to remove the seat part of the bench. The backs fold down, but the seat doesn't fold up.
