How do I clean pumpkin spice latte off of my car's interior?

It's that time of year again, but it seems like I'm clumsy all year round! I spilled my PSL all over my center console and passenger seat. How do I clean pumpkin spice latte out of the inside of my car?

Answer
We’ve been waiting for PSL season all year, so I hope you got to enjoy a bit of your latte before the spill! Coffee spills are common in cars, and are generally pretty easy to clean.
First, you’ll want to get rid of the stains as soon as possible. Doing so prevents the coffee from permanently discoloring your upholstery. Start by gathering:
  • Dish soap
  • White vinegar
  • Warm water
  • A clean towel
Start by soaking up as much liquid as possible with a clean towel or chamois cloth. From there, mix dish soap, white vinegar, and warm water to create a cleaning solution. Blot the solution gently over the stained areas, and remember to dab, not rub. This solution should also help with any lingering odor.
If this does not completely remove the stain, try mixing one tablespoon of laundry detergent with a cup of warm water and repeat the application process. Be sure to wash all soap from the seat with warm water and absorb excess moisture with another clean cloth.
If you want to make sure your car is in tip-top shape all around, you may also want to review your car insurance policy. To do this easily, check out the Jerry app—we’ll get you customized quotes from over 50 of the nation’s top providers, so all you need to do is pick the best deal on the coverage that you need. And all that money can go towards another PSL!
Best of luck, and enjoy PSL season safely!
