I need help getting stains out of my back seat. It had carseats on it for awhile, and the kids didn't tell me that they spilt juice. Would some kind of carpet cleaner work? I'm not sure....HELP ME!!

Most vehicles have a pocket on the back of the front seats and I keep a package of disposable wipes meant for car upholstery there. Whenever I am in my car and waiting for some reason for a few minutes, kids at school, highway construction or whatever, I grab one and take a wipe at my dash and door.

If I don't get it all done, I keep that one in the corner of my windshield until next time I stop for an extended period of time. Or when the kids get in the car, they will us it to wipe the other side and their door. When I get home from shopping, I use one of the wipes. Then my car is clean and ready for my next trip.

I have kept a rag sprayed with dusting solution in a ziploc bag in my car at times, but the disposable ones can be purchased pretty cheaply now.

How do I clean and/or remove the sticky interior of a VW Jetta 2003. It is disgusting in its appearance and feel. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

The surface is a fake leather looking vinyl. It appears like there is a layer of something peeling off and that is what gives the gummy texture. A car dealer said it was something that was applied to 2003 Jetta as a protection but after a while started to get gummy and peel. Unfortunately, he had no suggestions on how to deal with it.

Thank you!

To keep your car interior smelling sweet, place potpourri in the ashtrays. It can last longer than some air fresheners.

I also use baby wipe- I keep them in the glove box and do a little dashboard cleanup while stopped at a stoplight. I find that I don't get so impatient waiting for the light to change and I don't have to put aside extra time for this chore.
