Project Shed

I just forked out for a 2005 206 for my daughters first car and I am okay ish on the exterior, but I haven't tackled a cloth interior car for some time.
The seats are pretty manky and not sure if I have the correct stuff.
I have some BH Surfex, Britemax Grimeout and Koche Chemi Green Star and probably Autoglym interior shampoo.

Once I have the cleaner sorted is it best to wet vac the seats or be a little more manual with a brush??

Wouldn’t you do both? Gently brush in your chosen upholstery cleaner, then use a wet-vac to extract it along with the loosened dirt.

That’s exactly what I did, I used some APC at 5:1 (12 year old dirty carpets) and a rotary brush with a drill, then extracted the dirt that had been agitated.

Came up a million dollars if I do say so myself

And maybe wait until the weather improves so that they can dry in the sun & wind? Unless you have a heated garage, of course.....
