In which I remove the seats from my wife’s car in order to do some deep cleaning and rid the car of the awful smell of rancid milk.
With the seats out I wiped all the interior plastics and metal down with a bleach solution and scrubbed the hell out of the metal under the rear seat. It also got a liberal application of Lysol.
I shop vac’d the interior and spread some baking soda all over the carpets and vac’d that up later. After that I used a carpet cleaner to clean the tops of the seats and the carpet in the car.
For the bottom of the rear seat I used much bleach and a stiff brush to kill and remove all the mold and the seats spent many hours in the sun drying.
The floor mats were given a bath and a scrub but were not ready to reinstalled because they were still kinda wet and one was stinky. I’m hoping a day of sun will fix this.
Before and after re-assembly the car got a liberal application of Febreeze and I made sure to get the headliner in case it decided to absorb that smell.
Not picture: the lack of smell.
