How do I remove water spots from my car's upholstery?

I got a new car not too long ago, and I want to keep it in really good shape. Unfortunately, I spilled some water on my leather seats, and I'm worried it'll stain. What should I do?

You can remove water stains from leather car seats using a mild dish soap and leather conditioner.
Here’s how:
  • Start by vacuuming your seats to get rid of any debris.
  • Squirt a few drops of a mild dish soap into a bucket or large bowl of warm water.
  • Dip a sponge into the bucket or bowl, but be sure to squeeze the sponge, so that it’s not dripping wet.
  • Gently scrub the stained area with the sponge.
  • Use a moist microfiber cloth to wipe off any soapy residue.
  • Let the leather dry.
  • Apply a leather conditioner to the area.
You could also try mixing some vinegar in with the dish soap in a 1:1 ratio. But be careful to not overdo the vinegar, or else you could damage your leather seats.
You clearly care about your car a lot! One of the best ways to ensure that your car will remain in good condition is by getting good car insurance. The Jerry app can help by collecting insurance quotes for you so you can compare rates and coverages for free.
