Gordon still has his Nimbus 1300 as far as I know Lee. Great build quality and sadly no longer available, unfortunately.

I removed some aftermarket window tints from the R32 with it and it left no glue residue on the glass whatsoever – very impressive.

If doing a smokers car make sure you change the pollen filter and see AllenF's post on this page;

That changed my whole outlook on doing smoked in interiors.

Happy cleaning

Hi Gordon,

Good post! I enjoyed reading it. I use steam myself on daily basis.

In the past I tried many things from smaller steam cleaning vacuums up to commercial cleaning -
Cheers!

Hugo

Good post (no matter the age). Still trying to find an effective way to remove the smokers smell from my van. And the missus has got a little steam cleaner hiding under the stairs. I was concerned about using steam on the headlining but the idea of putting an mf cloth over the head is brilliant. In fact I think it might have an mf head on it already
Just about to read your post in interiors.....

take a look at www.airtune.eu. The AIRTUNE system pulses out a vapour cloud of 1 micron sized droplets that give much deeper penetration to all surfaces in the vehicle. The odour destroying properties of AIRTUNE Fresh will effectively remove the smell and leave a pleasant and lasting citrous aroma. Your steam idea is therefore on the right track.

HAHAHAHA CITRUS on tobacco.oh dear oh dear.


Mint is the key to removing oil based smells. Citrus just masks it. Citrus is used to "even out" the smell when doing the interior fully.
On top of that basicly you are saying use a fogger.
Again NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO gum up the Windows gum up the switches nessecitating recleaning. When all this does is heats a fluid to a steam. Better idea is hang a disco ball in car crank stereo up and pretend it's a disco because they are the same design of machine that a dj uses for artificial smoke.
To do the job properly take a look at an ozone generator or O3 to the tecky bits. Read up on them and then decide yourself.
After 20 and some years I ain't found a fogger that lasts the day yet alone does what it says ..
They don't clean they just fill the car with a horrible smelling steam that basicly sits on everything.... ozone generator is the way to go every time
