Why not to transport Scalloped Potatoes in your car (photos)

One week ago on Thanksgiving, I volunteered to cook scalloped potaotes for our annual potluck. Not to brag or anything, but my scalloped potatoes are killer. I use ALOT of cheese, and also a milk/cream/flour mix to add some substance to the dish. I live in San Jose, and the potluck was held in San Francisco, about a 45 min drive which I would need to transport the dish.

I pull the dish out of the over about 5 minutes before it's time to go (I was running late), and take the dish to my car. I place it in the back seat, because my trunk was completely full with other junk. I set a towel underneath the pan it was in because it was extremely hot and wanted to avoid it spilling anywhere.

45 Min later I arrive in SF to notice that some of the cheese and cream oozed out on to my seat . I know i know, its my fault for not securing the dish properly. I cleaned what i could see (it was already dark outside) and then proceeded into the house. Come to find the next day that my leather seats now have some residue that is stuck on pretty good !

My question is do you guys have any reccomendation for leather cleaner that can get hard food stains to come out ? Dont want to damage the leather nor stain it. There is also some on the seatbelt, any reccomendations for that? Thanks for your halp in advance !

I always found Lexol to be a good Cleaner and Conditioner. That should do the trick. Good luck

I use Meguiar's Gold Class Rich Leather cleaner and conditioner on my seats every two weeks in the summer and at least once a month in the winter. It is very good and it cleans and conditions at the same time.

I also use it and have been getting great results. However i think it will not be strong enough to remove those stains. It's very mild to say the least.

Lexol has worked for some of my stains. Use the cleaner and conditioner.

Why not to transport Scalloped Potatoes in your car (photos)

Scalloped potatoes are a family favorite and actually led to a spirited discussion on best recipe this thanksgiving in my family. Post cooking bmw transport was not a step in anyone's recipe as cream bubble over is a given for everyone's recipe. No help at all now but may consider transport pre cooked and tightly wrapped/sealed in the future.
