How to Remove Moisture and Dry Your Car Seats

Did you leave all the windows down in a rainstorm? Or did your teen spilled their favorite soda on the back seat? Perhaps you forgot to close the sunroof… No matter how it happened, now you have to deal with soaked upholstery.

But, don’t panic, wet car seats are easy to dry, and there is more than one way you can un-soak your vehicle’s interior. Use one the below methods, and you’ll be back on the road in no time.

1. Take Advantage of the Sun

All you need to do is to remove the seat in question and let the sun do its job. Heat is an excellent way to dry things off, so put it on a dark surface such as a black tarp or over asphalt to maximize the amount of solar energy absorbed by it. Most sedan, minivan, and rear SUV seats are easy to take out. If you cannot remove the seats of your car, then jump to the next method.

2. Fan

Use a fan if you cannot remove it from the vehicle or if you need to dry the seat overnight. Open the windows of your car and point the device at the wettest spots.

3. Cloth Towels

The whole point of using cloth towels is to take advantage of their power: liquid absorption. They should be your starting point for dealing with a wet car seat. And unlike paper towels, they won’t leave a film of paper particles behind on the fabric or leather.

4. Take Your Vehicle to Professional Detailers

If you want to avoid the hassles or don’t have time to dry your wet seats, bring your car to Mike’s Auto Spa in Westminster, Colorado. Our professional detailers will happily help you with the task.
