How to Get Pee Out of Leather Car Seats

February 15, 2024

Keeping your car seats clean and looking good is important for the overall appearance of your vehicle, and can help retain or increase its resale value. But accidents happen, and if your car's leather seats get peed on, you have to react quickly to avoid the problem from getting worse. If you're wondering how to get pee out of leather car seats, the best approach is to blot and extract as soon as possible.

Applying an enzyme cleaner is also a good idea, as it will break down the urine and neutralize the odor. It will also make the cleaning process much easier in the long run.

Blot the seat as much as you can using paper towels, being careful not to spread the odor or push the pee deeper into the upholstery. Once you've soaked up as much as you can, use the extractor to pull moisture out of the upholstery and into the paper towels. Do this until you can no longer see any moisture on the paper towels.

After you've pulled out as much of the moisture and odor as you can, apply a solution of mild soap in lukewarm water to the affected area. Use a sponge to scrub the seat, being careful not to oversaturate the leather with water. After you've scrubbed the leather, rinse it with a sponge dipped in warm water and then dry it thoroughly. Then, apply a light coating of leather conditioner to keep your seats supple and protected.
