It all started this morning:<p>1. eating a bowl of cereal and all of a sudden I knocked the bowl over the counter. The glass bowl broke with milk and cereal splattered everywhere. While my 1yr. old is toddling around trying to get to the cereal. <p>2. gave my 1yr. old a tumbler with milk, while he is walking around he learned how to spit milk out of his mouth (first time I've seen this and continued at dinner time), without me knowing (reading the paper), ended up spitting a lot of milk on my Sharp 52" and blu-ray player. <p>3. picked up the kids from school/daycare. I always bring milk for the boys to drink on the drive home. Always give me older boy a cup with a lid and the 1yr. old a tumbler, but today, I don't know why I decided to give the 1yr. old a cup with a lid.<br>He ended up removing the lid and spilled milk everywhere on the ceiling, door, floor, and seat. <p>4. yes, not over!! at dinner time, I had a cup of mango juice and accidentally knocked it over!! I have never been this clumsy. <p>Anyway, can someone tell me how to clean up a messy milk spill on a S80? Let alone the S80 has seats that have small tiny holes for the milk to enter. The funk of spoiled milk!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Had a terrible day today, but how to clean-up? (reinnie)

Oh my Reinnie! How much milk was it that spilled? Given the perforated seats, it probably went through and soaked into the seat cushions! You might have to take the seats out and take them to a cleaner to have profesionally cleaned. As far as the flooring carpet - steam clean it with a small attachment on a steam cleaner. I'm sure you can also do that on the headliner. But the seats! That will smell quickly in the summer heat. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Don't cry over spilt milk. There's an idiom for ya Nick. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Mango juice is awesome! Don't spill that stuff!<p>When you come to Philly, come in the XC to pick me up. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br>And for others on the forum: Don't post and say "You shouldn't eat or drink in your car" - That's so annoying.

reinnie, that's awful about the spilled milk into your perforated leather seats. Only thing I can think of is to use dampened Bounty paper towels, with a few small dabs of dishwashing liquid on them, and blot the seats. I know the milk is down past the holes, so maybe if you press down hard with the wet paper towels, the liquid soap will reach in to cushion under the leather, and bring the milk up into the paper towels. Keep changing the paper towels. I suggest Bounty brand because they are still strong when they are wet. That's how I clean spills and dirt off of my leather.

Use a CLEAR anti-bacterial soap. Do not use a colored dish detergent becuse the color can "leach" into the leather around the perforations. You can also go to any "good" upholstery shope have them lift the leather seat covers and clean the foam.

Thanks guys! I'll try the dish detergent first, if that doesn't work, then it needs to be professionally cleaned. <p>V, he basically spilled the entire cup. if you ever come down this way let me know.

I'd assume the milk was spilled in the back and if so, you might want to check that the heating system wasn't flooded by the milk...

Re: (frontwheeldriven)

Ugh! That totally sucks. I only use sippy cups even for my 3 yo in my car. Occasionally he'll take a hit off of a water bottle, but that's only water. And even when a sippy cup goes astray, I quickly pick it up.

I wiped & wiped but the smell is starting (probably a lot of milk inside the seat), especially in this heat. I wonder if even a professional will be able to clean it, who knows where the milk has flowed to.
