Default Wet perforated leather

Last night I had to do a nearly impossible parallel parking job in the pitch dark. The good news is I handled it flawlessly. Bad news is I had my window down to make things a bit easier. I left my window open all night and it was raining. Somehow nobody stole anything out of my glove box but the seat is damp. Itís not wet but itís damp and Iím wondering how to go about this. Do I just let it be and itíll dry on itís own? Itís been 24 hours and it still feels damp.

Not likely to be much of an issue. Just let it dry out.

Just stick a fan in there to blow on it....let it blow all day and all night........donít just let it dry on its own, mold could pop up.

use a plug-in fan all night.....leave the doors open - be sure the dome light(s) are out.

trade your car in for one with vinyl seats until you can afford a home with a garage

I'd take a heavy bath towel to absorb anything left and press down hard on it. I've actually always worried about that (unnecessarily). People have left sunroofs open and gone on vacation and had big problems...
