Should have known better, but opened plastic bottle of diet coke in my new Ody-EXL. It fizzed out all over my front seat.


What's the best way to clean this up? Quick wipe a dry cloth, Armor-All, or just a simple soap and water solution?

Appreciate any responses to this...

Fill kitchen sink with warm water, put a couple drops of dish detergent (i.e. Pamolive) into water - just enough to make water slippery between fingers. Soak rag completely and then wring out completely. This can be used to clean the entire interior from the grime in the window switches, intrument panel, armrests, vents, door jambs, to diet Coke on the seats and ice cream on car seats. Armor all is a protectant, not a cleaner - and once you Armor All something you always have to or it doesn't look as good.

Anyway the ease of cleanup is why you bought leather in the first place.

Thanks, rklindb, I did as you suggested.

I figured that Armor-All was not really the best way to go on this, but hearing this confirmed was helpful.

I am sure leather is much easier to clean. Wonder if folks out there have other neat tricks on cleaning cloth and/or leather seats from such things as ink spots, grease stains, etc. Not sure if this topic has been posted before, but perhaps it would be helpful to review...

I know this is a long URL, but I got by searching www.ask.com. I have used the ink treatment to remove bright pink ink from pants.
