    How should I clean a spill from under the passenger seat?

    22 oz's of beer spilled under there and I don't think a wet vac hose will fit.

    My car smells like old beer and alcohol and I'm sure it'll get sticky

    Take the seat out? It's only two or four bolts, takes 2 minutes

    I guess that's my only option. Removing the bolts and taking the seat out would be a lot less hassle than trying to work underneath anyway. Thanks. I didn't think the seat would be so easy to remove.

    I'll find those bolts and let you all know how it goes.

    From experience, the beer smell always departs of it's own accord.

    Once in my old Saab, I took some corners too hard, and one 6-pack of beer bottles in my trunk crashed into another, resulting in at least 3 or 4 bottles exploding and leaking beer all over the trunk floor.

    I was devastated, not for the car, but the loss of beer.

    I dried up as best as a could, and was going to shampoo & wet-vac, but by the time I got around to it, there was no trace of smell or stains. Same applies in my home - I've had so many beer spillages, I'd imagine there is not a single area downstairs that has not seen beer. I usually clean up with a brush and some water!

    Carpet at the moment .. seems to absorb beer spillages quite well without changing color Click here to enlarge I'd like to upgrade but .. if I did that, I wouldn't be able to afford the beer to spill on it.
