  8. Here are some tips for you to clean car seat stains :

    If the urine is still fresh, grab a towel; fold it in two, lay it on the stain and step on it until it has absorbed the urine as much as it can.
    Remember not to use paper towels because they are costly, not reusable and impractical.
    Repeat this step, until the urine can no longer be extracted from the car seat.


    In the event the spot has dried up, combine 3 parts warm water along with 1 part vinegar inside a container and pour the concoction over the spot.
    The chemical reaction will allow the stain to become softer therefore it will make it less difficult to get rid of and get rid of the smell of urine. Utilize towels in order to dry out the spot softened by vinegar.


    After, pour baking soda on the stain and leave it to set. Baking soda is used as an effective cleaning tool in removing stain and odor because of its antiseptic properties.


    Finally, after the baking soda has settled, mix hydrogen peroxide together with a small amount of dish soap or detergent within a container and pour the solution upon the stain and allow settle at approximately 5 minutes or until it has saturated.
    Slip on some rubber gloves and blot the spot to properly clean the urine and eliminate the scent.

    Regarding feces, the identical technique for getting rid of urine is going to be used with the exception that, prior to doing such, pick up the poop by using a dustpan or paint scraper and then follow the previous methods as provided above.

    I'm really sorry you only got a few laps, damn those pesky brakes 8-x

    After another overheat I decided to pay a bit more attention to what the instructor said, WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! By the end I was able to bang out 15 laps on the trot and I was much faster. I even managed to catch that Puma racing car on my penultimate lap. Crying shame that junior Swamper couldn't ride shotgun, he looked well up for it. We'll blag it next year eh!

    Cracking photos Maurice :-bd

    Cheers Mozza and Swamper for the moral support, I had a fantastic day. The next track day is at Cadwell and rabid wild angry vampire dogs couldn't keep me away.

    Funnily enough, the first time I nailed it the chap in front of me didn't. I mean REALLY didn't. Poor sod ripped the front bumper clean off his motor. that corner is bloody lethal.

    My brakes need a bit of TLC, other than that the old girl is good to go for round 2 at Cadwell on the 13th May. If you end up going Daz, Pm me and I'll give you my number. :D

    Cadwell will sort out the brakes. The standard m brake discs didn't last long there before overheating

    Sorry I couldnt come along, was looking forward to it, someone pulled a sicky :-q so couldnt get the day off.

    Glad you had a good day though, did you get a spin in the Swamper Mobile Mozza?

    Pete let me know the details for the one in May. Might be interested in coming along, get some green stuff fitted first though :coolsteer)
