2012 Toyota Prius C Long Term Road Test

2012 Toyota Prius C: I Hope This Comes Out

July 11, 2012


OK, who's the joker that put his office bag on the front passenger seat, only to find that said bag had a leaky bottle of tea in it? Well, that would be me, the same guy who spilled fizzy tea all over our Genesis' multimedia controller back in 2009. Clearly, drinks, cars, light upholstery and me don't mix.


As leaving pee-like stains on seats is against the rules for our long-term fleet, I broke out a bottle of stain remover. The hairy arm in the photo was used to demonstrate how manly of a task this was.


Ta-da! After a bit of sponge action, the stain was gone. It came out a lot easier than I would have thought, actually. The Prius is back in action.
