Remove Water Stains from seat

Hi
Had a little chocolat incident yesterday. Managed to clean off most of the damage with wet wipes.

Unfortunately, I now have a water stain from the clean up job. Any suggestions on how to remove them?

I have the 2 tone SE Sport seats. The lighter color cleaned up great. The water stain is in the center of the seat in the dark black area.

If you don't have access to an extractor or steamer (best options), you'll need to spray the area with an upolstery cleaner from your local auto parts store, wipe it with a microfiber towel to pull the chocolate out. The key is to spread out your wet stain from cleaning. In other words, don't just clean in the one spot where your chocolate spot is, spread out the wet area over the entire black portion of your seat cushion.

Spilling just a cup of clean water can leave a stain on an already dirty seat cushion, and all seat cushions have some dirt embedded on them. By spreading the wet area out to the edges of your black upolstery, you've in a sense, hidden the stain caused by the waters edge.

An extractor will of course do a better job of "extracting" the dirt up and out of the fabric. Consult your local auto detailer. ;)
