    Girlfriend spills a few drops of coffee on the seat. It happens. It was just a few small spots, not real bad- I wasn't upset- I would deal with it later.
    We get home from the weekend away and she grabs this:

    and with three blasts of the trigger, a week later the seat looks like this:

    Anyone have a suggestion for something that might improve the damage?
    <sigh>

    Maybe try using a Magic Eraser, start on a small spot & see if it works. If not you may see about getting it steam cleaned. Good luck.

    Weird looks like you can see all 3 trigger pulls. I would check out and read reviews on Amazon and go from there.

    This has always worked well for me and the wife. Foams when sprayed on. Comes with a scrubber attachment.

    I had the exact same thing happen with some Turtle Wax upholstery cleaner. I kept thinking it would dry, but after several days, it still looked like yours. On a hunch, I grabbed a towel and soaked it with hot water. Scrubbed the spot and it soaped up like crazy. I kept rinsing the towel and scrubbing until the spot(s) no longer foamed up. About 2 hours later, everything was gone.
    I guess I used too much and what I was seeing was the dried soap. Give the spots a few swipes with a wet towel and see if they foam up. If so, I bet you have the same problem that I did.

    Walmart carries some stuff called Spot Shot. It comes in a spray can with an orange top. We use it on pretty much everything. I've pulled grease out of white carpet with it. The only thing it didn't completely remove was red dye from a Code Red Mountain Dew. I'd test shoot it just to be safe, but so far, it has never faded anything we've used it on. That being said, it squirts a good bit when you hit the nozzle so be prepared for it.

    huh. Simple as that ;)
    Rub rub rub with the wet washcloth, got some foam buildup. Rub some more getting the entire area wet, went back with her hair dryer- sweet!
    Thanks everyone.
