How to Remove Chocolate Stains from the Car Seat – The chocolate bar was delicious and was eaten along the way, and you did not notice the stain on the car seat until the next day after it had dried overnight and softened again in the morning sun. Now you have a dirt that seems eternalized in the fabric of your car seat. You can not sit on it without risking smearing your pants and can not throw the car seat in the washing machine. How to solve this?
How to Remove Chocolate Stains from a Car Seat
- Let the chocolate harden. Trying to remove it from the fabric when it is soft may worsen the stain. To speed up the hardening process, place an ice pack on the stain, wrapped in a cloth or towel. Hold the ice gently over the chocolate stain until it hardens.
- Scrape the chocolate with a butter knife. Be sure to use the smooth tip, as a serrated knife can ruin the seat.
- Remove and throw away the chocolate scraps.
- Spray the stain with a stain remover, dampening it enough. Let the stain rest for five to ten minutes for the remover to completely penetrate the fibers of the fabric.
- Apply cool water and gently rub with a brush. Lighten the stain with water and a clean cloth.
- Make a paste by adding drops of water to a teaspoon of laundry soap. With your finger, rub the paste into the stain.
- Put cool water in a glass and use water and a cloth to rub the soap into the stain. As you rub, the rest of the chocolate should come out. Change the water from the glass a few times to make sure the powdered soap has been completely removed.
- If any blemishes remain, place paper towels over the area and iron at low temperature. This step is only necessary for chocolate scraps that do not come out with the previous steps.
