    I spilled some chai in my passenger seat of the car a week ago. Granted the smell is gone, but the seat still feels a bit weird after placing some wet paper towels down and vaccuming it.

    Do you have any recommendations on what to do to take the weird dry stuff out? This is cloth, not leather btw. Do I have to take the seat out? :wtc:

    Woolite/water mix (see product list), spray, scrub, wipe up with a towel, spray with a bottle of plain water, scrub, wet vac, wipe dry with a clean towel.

    that would be the way to do it unless you can get your hands on an extrator.

    thanks...., I think what I'll do is use the wool-lite on the seats, and then use that shampoo for under the seat.

    I don't have a wet-vac, but I'll see if someone does have one.

    If you have access to something like a Little Green Machine (small extractor) that would work as well.

    I'll wait til I get back to my dad's for thanksgiving to take care of that and see if he has one... with all the tools him and my uncle has around, I'm sure he's bound to have one.

    Thanks!!!
