How do you get water stains out of the fabric in car seats?

We left our sunroof open last night and, of course, it rained all over the car seat. How do I get water stains out of car fabric?

Answer
Bummer! Let’s get your ride fixed up.
To get water stains out of fabric car seats, use a vacuum to remove dirt, dust, and crumbs from the upholstery. Otherwise, you’ll just be spreading dirt around your car when you move on to the next steps.
For hard water and saltwater stains, apply a teaspoon of vinegar to the stain, and let it sit for a few minutes. (Skip this step if you feel it’s unnecessary.) Then, use a brush to gently massage upholstery shampoo into the fabric.
Make sure you rub the shampoo into the entire seat. If you don’t, you’ll end up with weird patches where the upholstery doesn’t match.
Finally, use a dry rag or towel to soak up the shampoo and water. To finish, let the entire area air dry for several hours, ideally in the sun.
Alternatively, you could opt to have your car professionally detailed and skip the hassle.
