How to Remove Mildew From Cloth Car Seatsby Robin Hewitt
Car seats get a lot of wear, especially if you have children. Sometimes if there's a spill on a cloth seat you might not find it until the dampness has allowed mildew to grow. Removing mildew from a car seat isn't too complicated; with a couple of common household cleaners and some old fashioned elbow grease, before you know it you can have that cloth car seat looking as good as new.
Mix the laundry booster with the peroxide in a small bowl.
Apply the cleaning solution to the mildew stain, rubbing it gently with a clean cloth until the stain is gone.
Rinse the area with clean water, using a sponge until the wrung out sponge runs clear water.
Suck up the extra moisture with a wet vacuum, or blot with a towel and allow to dry completely in a sunny spot.
Things You'll Need
- ½ tsp. liquid laundry booster
- ½ cup hydrogen peroxide (3 percent)
- Clean cloth
- Wet vacuum
