Whether you are transporting pets or children, the chances of a bladder-related accident are always present. Fortunately, if an accident does occur, you won't have to pay a high price to replace your upholstery. That's because cleaning urine from leather car seats is a relatively easy process.
Things You'll Need
- Rags or cloth towel
- Mild detergent
- Enzymatic stain remover
Remove the leather seat if possible. Otherwise, clean out the car so that you have full access to the seat.
Use a clean rag or towel to absorb all liquid at the site of the stain.
Dilute a cup of mild detergent with a quarter of a cup of water. Mix slowly.
Wet a rag or cloth towel with the mixture and wash the entire leather seat. Make sure you wash every part, including seams, as evenly as possible to prevent water stains.
Spray a small amount of the enzymatic cleaner on the stain location. Allow it to sit as directed. Nature's Miracle is one such leather-safe product.
Wipe down the leather seat with rag or cloth towel dampened in water. Once again, be sure to wipe the entire seat.
Allow to air dry.
