How do I remove stains from leather car seats?

How can I remove stains without damaging the leather car seats? I was in a hurry when picking up food for my nephew’s birthday party. I accidentally put a pizza box on the passenger seat, and now there’s an oil stain.

That’s nice of you to lend a helping hand!
No one likes dealing with stains; fortunately, with the help of baking powder, that pizza stain will be gone in no time. You will need the following:
  • Baking soda
  • Damp cloth
  • Clean cloth or towel
Step one: Take the baking soda and sprinkle it over the target area. With a damp cloth, rub in the powder to the oil stain.
Step two: Let the baking powder rest and soak up the oil for a couple of hours. If you prefer, you can also let the powder sit overnight.
Step three: After you have let the baking powder sit for your choice of duration, take a dry, clean cloth to wipe off the powder from the leather seat.
Step four: Follow up by using a damp cloth to wipe off the excess residue. Use a clean towel to wipe down the seat.
After cleaning your leather seats and removing the oil stain, consider applying a leather conditioner to prevent cracking and staining in the future.
