Hi everyone..
Bank holiday Monday morning and I decided to give my car a thorough vacuum ind interior clean..
Whilst doing this I noticred under the passenger seat and down the side of the gearbox tunnel on the passenger side some pretty bad staining on the carpets.. Its as though the previous owner had spilt either strong coffe or maybe soup and the problem is I now know its there !!!!
I think I have aquired the all too common medical complaint knbown as "spotles Merc Syndrome"..
Basically I intend to remove the front passenger seat in order to access the carpet with some sort of cleaner / shampoo product.
What would the guru's out there recommend I use?
Would you recommend I use a "wet" product? E.g A brush and hot soapy water or some sort of dry foam car cleaner type stuff.
I await your replies with interest.
Thanks in advance.

Stardrops --but test a bit first and rinse well --it will fade the colour if you go mad at it !

Since most things that we drink are water soluble then always try water first, you can only dissolve something with something from the same family.

I would not use water all over the carpets, as I feel they are never the same after, and take on a matted appearance

Washing up liquid/water on the stains, then shampoo for the rest.

Biological laundry liquid/hot water mixture is your friend spray on hot brush in gently leave and sponge off.
It evens smells nice afterwards and is tested to much higher standards than a lot of the snake oils sold for car valeting.

I think you should try the water First and then go for other options stuff like shampoo
Hope it helps you in vacuuming carpet.
