Deep Cleaning

Almost every square inch of the interior of my car is disgusting. Probably 46 years of dirt. I've bought some Chemical Bother's upholstery cleaner and used it at the lowest dilution. Scrubbing and scrubbing with a stiff bristled brush on the inside of the driver's door, the driver's seat (MBTex I think) and the padded "horseshoe" section at the back and I am disappointed. I don't see any real improvement. My fingers have pruned though! :D

I see that in the past Aerospace 303 is recommended for protecting and also Lexol, but what about deep cleaning? Is there something out there that can do wonders for my tired old interior? šŸ§ Should I get one of those brush attachments for my drill? :p

Thanks, Andy

Definitely good advice with not too much scrubbing or harsh chemicals. I've made that mistake before and had to change my whole interior. Doh..

More than once šŸ˜‚

There's a really good alkaline cleaner called G850 that's very good. Obviously whatever you use, test it on an out of the way bit first.

Steam cleaner can give amazing results but there is plenty of scope for damage there. I restored a cream velour interior with one but the two marks I put on the seats ruined it. The rest looked amazing!
