UNSCENTED LAUNDRY SOAP
It’s one thing to have bird poop on the exterior of your car, but for soft top convertible drivers and those with a sunroof and a lot of bad luck, getting poop out of upholstery is a whole different story. Luckily, unscented laundry soap can help remove the mess without ruining any fabric.
-Step One: Allow the poop to dry. Wet bird poop is even more challenging to clean from upholstery.
-Step Two: Put on gloves. Use a plastic scraper to scrap the dry droppings from the fabric. Do not use metal as this could tear the upholstery.
-Step Three: Apply several drops of liquid detergent to that white chalky like substance that remains and pat with a clean, damp cloth until saturation is reached.
-Step Four: Rinse the cloth and gently scrub the area into a lather.
-Step Five: Rinse cloth and wring well, then pat area with the clean cloth.
-Step Six: Allow car to air dry – indoors if possible.
It might also make sense to carry cleaning wipes in the glove box in order to be prepared should tragedy strike again. You can find special engineered wipes made of composite bamboo fibres that area soaked in an acid-neutralizing solution.
