Save

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
  • Water
  • 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.

Tips & Warnings

  • Be sure to check that the enzymatic stain remover is safe to use on leather surfaces.
  • Be sure to evenly wipe the leather surface to avoid water stains.
  • Cat urine can ruin leather upholstery permanently and require its replacement.
