Removing Melted Chocolate From Your Car’s Upholstery

With summer coming on, reports of melted chocolate on car upholstery are on the rise, causing chocolate lovers to first mourn the waste of such a treasure and quickly panic as to how to get it out!

Don't worry...All is not lost.

You can even let the kids help you with this car cleaning project.

It is pretty easy to do and with the summer season in bloom you know it won't be the last mess you have to clean off the car's upholstery!

Difficulty Level: Very Easy





Things you’ll need for this Project:

1. Carpet shampoo
2. Liquid stain remover
3. Soft-bristled brush (old toothbrushes work great for this)
4. Butter knife or small putty knife
5. Clean cloths

Step 1:

Let the chocolate harden; park in the shade or other cool area to let this happen.

Step 2:

Using the butter knife or small putty knife, scrape off as much of the hardened chocolate as possible. Be careful to quickly dispose of the shavings (don’t eat them, throw them awayJ) to ensure that they do not get ground into the fabric elsewhere.

Step 3:

Thoroughly apply carpet shampoo to the spot; apply a warm damp cloth to the area; press it into the spot firmly and let sit for thirty minutes.

Step 4:

Remove the cloth and scrub the area thoroughly with a dampened old toothbrush. Wipe the spot with a clean cloth dampened with clean water, and allow to dry completely.

Step 5:

Once dry, if there is still residual staining repeat the above steps with a liquid stain remover instead of a carpet shampoo. It may take multiple applications to remove the stain completely.
