Hey all, Happy New Year,<P>Mine is off to a bad start. Last night a passenger in my previously new condition '96 854R had a non-alcohol related vomit in the backseat. Can a trip to even the best professional detailer in town save my once perfect alcantra? If not, can I buy replacement seats from the dealer for a car that is 6 years old? <P>Thanks,<P>Duncan

Follow up:<P>After five hours of work, everything is all cleaned up. It was a nasty ordeal but it proved how resilient my interior is. Only remaining damage is some light small stains on some of the alcantra. Oh well, you can't have a perfect car forever.<P>

Wow, I thought Alcantara was more durable than that. That stinks..no pun intended.<P>Glad to hear you got it basically clean. I guess there is something to be said for vinyl seats huh?<P>Seriously, I wonder if Scotchguard is good for Alcantara?

Any ideas for getting rid of the lingering vomit odor? I Febreeze the areas daily and have those flow-thru baking soda things all over. My passengers and I greatly appreciate any help.<P>

Duncan,<P>Have you cleaned all parts of the interior that are 'washable' like the windows and dashboard and stuff? Cleaned down all the seats etc..? I think that should help.<P>-Drew

After my hamster died in the air conditioning/radio area of my car, I refused to ride in it for months. If you can just imagine how much a dead, rotting hamster can smell in the summer. I could still smell traces of it weeks after it happened, but my dealer put deoderizer in the area where they found him and that kind of helped. Also, we left the windows down day and night. Hope that helps <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">
