Hi All,
I'm already pretty experienced in car valeting but interior upholstery shampooing/washing has never really been my strong point! I have the rest of the car looking great but the seats are pretty manky from the previous owner not being as anal as I am about keeping cars clean. I've tried autoglym HI-FOAM but it didnt really make a change. The upholstery seems to be very tough to clean. Can anyone suggest any products or methods? I can get access to trade autoglym products and a wet/dry vac if needs be!

Thanks in advance,
Andy.

Hi Andy,

You'll struggle to beat Megs All Purpose Cleaner on interior plastics/leather/matts/pedals you name it. I spray it on liberally at 4:1, agitate with brushes and clean up with microfibres. Add your wet/dry vac will well and truly sort it.

Thanks for the reply pal!..I'll probably give it another go over the weekend! I'll post up how I got on with pics! Il give it a go with the autoglym one, After using lots of different makes of valeting product I get the impression they're probably all made in the same place and turned different colours! haha..I'l keep meguiars APC in mind though!

Nice fiesta by the way! They look brill in white!
