How do I remove ketchup stains from a car seat?

One of my McDonald's ketchup packets exploded in the sun. Can you tell me how to remove the ketchup stain from my seat?

What a mess! To remove a ketchup stain from your seat, the first step is to blot up any excess ketchup drops from the upholstery.
After you’ve removed any major ketchup pools, use a cloth soaked in white vinegar to dab the remaining stains. Let the vinegar soak into the seat for about five to ten minutes, then apply liquid soap to the area. Again, dab until all ketchup traces are gone.
From there, rinse the seat with warm water and dry the area completely to avoid any lingering smells. Should that not work, you can try a car upholstery cleaner or visit a professional detailer.
