3 Tips for Cleaning Auto Upholstery


By removing dirt and sand, you will reduce the amount of wear on the upholstery and carpet fibers. This will also prevent the debris from being ground into the fabric, saving both time and elbow-grease.

Spot Clean

To treat stains before shampooing, use a spotter like Trusted Clean Spot Care II to dissolve away both water and oil based stains. For the random stains between shampooing, use a stain remover like Sprayway® Carpet & Upholstery Spotter which does not require a final rinse or shampoo to prevent the area from attracting soil.

Shampoo Carpets and Upholstery

Just like regularly extracting your home carpets will help them stay nice looking longer, regularly shampooing your vehicles carpets and upholstery will refresh fabrics and lengthen their life as well. This will also remove any remaining dust and dirt missed by the vacuum.
