    It has been pretty hot lately in Seattle and I accidentally left a roll of deodorant/antiperspirant on my front seat while it was parked in the sun. It leaked onto the seat and has left a stain/mark on the textile and fake leather portion of the seats. At first I wiped it off and it seemed fine, but after sitting for a while it looked discolored a little bit after it dried so I wiped it down again. Now it looks darker than the rest of the seat, almost like its still wet (but its been 12 hours). Whats the best way to clean the textile fabric? And anything special to clean out deodorant stains from this type of material?

    I'm not sure what will clean up deodorant. But 409 works very very well on Nylon and Polyester fabrics. It is very effective at grease/oil stains, and rinses out fairly well.

    Not to mention it very rarely discolors synthetic fabrics.
