Brisk helping with stripes in car mats

5 series BM dropped off tonight for a clean tomorrow so decided to get one of the jobs out of the way tonight and get the mats seen to.



These were vacuumed with the Nilfisk 20T wet and dry machine then sprayed with AS Brisk which was agitated into the mat with a brush



Sprayed with water which was then extracted out with the same vac as before but did remove the dustbag first.

A light misting of water was then applied again to the mats and a credit card was used to create the stripes.



This was the dirt that came out of the mats



Mats look and smell great now.

Lol isn't it weird how we like to put our mark on the carpets. I must admit I'm not a stripe fan but those are impressive lines. I prefer a zig zag action with the hoover nozzle lol

I've done that in the past mate but with only a thin nozzle (behave) the stripes were thinner than I liked so wanted to try the credit card method this time.

Need a wider nozzle😉

What stencil CLEAN bits into a minging headlining with a tornador?????
I did give a guy a demo of the torny i wrote filth in the headlining and then regretted it as it took me bloody ages to match the rest of the headlining in the bloody thing wouldnt come clean.
Stencil shiny bits on the dashboard with silly spray or smart dash.
Shencil rude words on the car in wax or topaz after stripping the rest of the car so when it rains..
Ohhhhhhh the possibilities are endless here LOL
85mm stripes if you must use them is the best.
