Was the party good yesterday? Yep… Your best friend threw up a big vomit in the back seat. Maybe it's the food or would it be the last few glasses of margarita a little loaded? Either way, the bottom line is: you absolutely need to get the vomit out of your car's back seat before your dad finds out. Devil ! How to remove vomit? Did you know that it is possible to use products that you have in your home? Hurry, it sticks and… it doesn't smell good at all!
Step 1. Dry the stain immediately
Have a rag, tea towel or other cloth handy and carefully blot the stain to remove the moisture. Don't press too hard, as you can have the opposite effect and watch with horror as the vomit gets deeper into your seats.
Step 2. Take a spatula
Now remove the dry remains with a spatula or a clean cloth.
Step 3. Pour in baking soda
Cover the affected areas with a thin layer of baking soda. Leave it on for 30 minutes then vacuum. Your sense of smell and that of your friends will be very grateful.
Step 4. Create a liquid cleaning product
- Prepare a paste of water and baking soda. For leather seats, mix three parts water to one part baking soda.
- If your seats are fabric, vinyl, plastic (that's fantastic) or covered with a carpet, mix 1 part white vinegar with 8 parts lukewarm water and add 5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) dishwashing liquid. Then stir with love.
Step 5. Brush the scene of the crime
Pour a small amount of liquid cleaner on the ugly stain and brush the contaminated area thoroughly or rub it with a non-lint-free cloth. In the event that moisture has penetrated the seat, you will need to use a stiff brush.
Step 6. Rinse thoroughly
Use a lint-free cloth and rub the damaged area as long as necessary to remove as much of the cleaning fluid as possible.
- To clean leather, use a damp cloth, but not wet.
- If your seats are vinyl, fabric, plastic, or carpeted, you need to wet your tea towel. If you used a large amount of liquid cleaner, you can use a bottle filled with water to spray the stain.
Step 7. Dry the seat
Take 1 or 2 dry, lint-free cloths to remove the water.
Step 8. Open the windows
You can call the neighbors to party, but the goal is to ventilate as much as possible. Open wide doors and windows to the wind. If the weather is bad, you can use a fan or a hair dryer!
- Keep freezer bags in your vehicle! The day someone gets road sick, they'll have a place to express themselves freely without staining the beautiful llama-skin seats of your new convertible.
- If the person who vomited is sick, you must use rubber or latex gloves to clean your car to avoid any risk of contaminating the planet.
