Best value cloth interior cleaner.

Good morning all,

The wife has recently bought her first car which is 12 years old and 50k mileage. The car comes with a cloth interior and given the age and mileage and the inside I'm assuming it hasn't seen a cleaner in a long time. It's not exactly dirty just has the usual dirt marks and age related marks.

I'm after a reflectively cheap foam style cleaner that would improve it at an minor cost. I also have some G101 which I've read can work effecetly. Dilute 1:10 and spray on and agitate with a soft brush before wiping with damp cloth at a guess?

Autosmart brisk is a great value interior shampoo.

G101 at 10 to 1 is a bit strong for interiors. 30 to 1 is plenty strong enough for fabric.

If the stains aren't too bad then personally I love AutoFinesse Total. Can be used pretty much anywhere inside (I've used it on carpets/fabrics, dashboards and plastics and even leather) and it works great on everything.

Cleaned some mouldy old 02 Fiesta seats & carpet up nicely with this (can was different though) that I found on the shed floor....didn't wanna waste the expensive stuff on it but (considering it must've been a good 3-4 years old) did quite a good job....and it foams! Just sprayed it everywhere, let it soak for a bit, used the supplied 'detailing brush in a lid' to gently work it in, wiped with a clean MF and gave a quick hoover over....done

Ok if you are after a cheap way to clean and freshen the fabrics up try this out.
Goto local cheapo store also little etc.
Get a bottle of their own brand bio washing gel or liquid ( choose your own flavour) and a bottle of "ironing water in the same flavour or neutral).
Mix about quarter a capful to a litre of warm ( hand hottish) water now a add about a quarter bottle of the ironing water.
Pour it into a mini jet and shake the hell out it
Spray the seats lightly and scrub with a soft brush. Either extract the foam with a normal wet n dry Hoover OR rub with a micro fibre.
All you hard-core must use this must use that ask yourselves what your best shirt and trousers are washed with....

Total cost for about 25 litres is about 3quid
( plus you can wash your clothes and stuff with it too)

BARGAIN OR WHAT

Well Allen,

so good to have you back There was me thinking you had gone down for a longer stretch this time, Must have had a decent brief to get time off for good behaviour

They say you learn "something every day" and today I have learned that you can buy water to put in the iron. Must say I wasn't even aware that you put water in an iron. I thought the wife just put it in the grate to get it nice and hot.
