How To Get Drywall Mud Out Of Truck Interier


Trying to clean up a work truck to make it more presentable. Interior is leather, there are a lot of spot where drywall mud has gotten on the leather seats, door panels, and other plastic parts. I am wondering if you guys have any suggestions for getting the mud loosened up so it can be removed easily without scraping etc. THanks for your time.

A damp sponge would be my guess. Keep rinsing the sponge.

That's what I would think too. Wet it and it should melt, then keep wiping.

Since it's drywall mud, water will dissolve it. If your leather has alot of holes in it, from the factory, get a toothpick and push it out.

I would take it to a car detailer and pay the $100 to have it done. $100 would probably cover inside and out.

People may think that is a waste, but it's great to drive around a really clean truck, for a few days anyway.

I'd try to get as much off dry before wetting it.
