Introduction

Keep a variety of remedies at the ready: Cornstarch, to absorb fresh grease stains; oil solvents, or dry-cleaning fluids, for greasy residue; combination solvents and a mild, clear dishwashing liquid for all-purpose stain removal; natural bleaching agents (lemon juice and white vinegar); glycerin, for ballpoint ink; and eyedroppers and cotton swabs, for easy application.

    PianoCat: try Nature's Miracle, sold at major pet stores. It contains an enzyme that digests the odor component of pet urine. You can use a blacklight to see where the stain actually is in your car and thoroughly saturate it with the solution. I hate to plug products, but this one really works.

    Thank you for the stain kit! Do you know how to get "whiteout" out of jeans? I've tried everything I can think of and it won't come out!

    Thanks Palominogal, the link was a great help =~}
    Do you know where I can get the pan that was used to put the stain kit supplies in....pictured above? I love vintage? Thank you again!

    That awesome stain chart has been around a while. The kit content list is also in the Organizational Checklist section.

    it is correct to call it an "eye dropper" the safe way to get drops into the eye :)

  • KrisInMichigan 7 Aug, 2011

    Just to clarify ...
    "Eyedropper" is incorrect; it is called a medicine dropper.
    You don't drop eyes with it! :)

    What about cat urine? I had a cat that got into my car last year. Thought I had gotten it out but it's come back real strong. Tried vinegar, pet stain/urine removal. What can I use?

    I concur with the others the list and tips would be great added to this, so it will all be saved together. Also I want the pan that all the cleaning stuff is in. Where can I buy me one? I love love love it! Thank you, love you guys!

    I agree with the others. I also would like to know how to remove specific difficult stains

  • TerriShaver 6 Aug, 2011

    The kit looks simple and easy to assemble, but a list of stain removal tips would be helpful! Thanks!!
    Perhaps a topic for an upcoming day?

    The idea of having a kit prepared is a great organizational tip. But instructions for specific stains would be even more helpful.
