DIY Car Upholstery Cleaner

Get That New-Car Feeling With This DIY Upholstery Cleaner

Mix together this quick and easy upholstery cleaner that you can stash in your car to use when needed. Made with your favorite dish soap and clean-boosting Borax, your seats will always look wonderfully fresh.

What You'll Need:

  • 3 tablespoons dish soap
  • 1 tablespoon Borax
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Funnel (optional)
  • Small spray bottle

Directions:

  1. Mix together the dish soap and Borax in a small bowl, and then cover with boiling water, stirring to distribute. Dish soap breaks up tough stains, and Borax is a natural cleaning booster that helps refresh and disinfect.

  1. Let the cleaner cool, and then pour it into a small spray bottle, using a funnel as needed. Do a quick spot check before using to make sure the cleaner doesn't discolor your car seat fabric.
  2. The next time you're dealing with a spill, spritz the cleaner onto a paper towel or soft cloth, and dab it onto the stain. Or use it full force with this complete car seat cleaning method!
