How to Remove Mould from Your Car Seats

If you’re like many and have to park your car outside exposed to the elements year-round, the unfortunately result can be that moisture creeps in. If left untreated, moisture can turn into mould damaging both your car’s interior, as well as your health.

Luckily, there are a few home remedies you can use to remove mould quickly and easily. Here are our tips:

  1. Grab a spray bottle and fill it with distilled white vinegar.
  2. If it is a sunny day, leave your car outside but open all doors for ventilation. If it is raining, park your car under cover before commencing ventilation. Leave doors open for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Grab a paper mask, preferably one with filters, to protect your lungs during mould removal. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
  4. Spray the bottle of distilled white vinegar on everything infested with mould, as well as a few inches around these areas. Spores can be growing before they are visible to the naked eye, so we want to stop this process in its tracks.
  5. Make sure all areas are completely saturated. Don’t worry, the smell will go away!
  6. Let the vinegar soak in and sit on the mould for at least 10 minutes in order to kill the mould.
  7. Once at least 10 minutes have passed, wipe off any residue left behind by the mould.
