Cleaning Upholstery

Post by Sadgeek » Sat Jul 26, 2003 3:18 pm


Any recommendations for a wet'n dry vac to get my seats and carpets cleaned?

I've got a aquavac that is just too bulky to use inside, and I'm hoping that someone will know of anything smaller.

I know it sounds silly, but a much cheaper way is, a can of Groom and a soft interior brush. Much quicker and cheaper I have found.

But if you really do want a vac, maybe try Argos etc

cleaned my car seats yesterday using a VAX cleaner and ol my god were they s**t, started in the back seats but they were not too bad, when i came to do the front seats it was just like i had filled the bucket with a muddy puddle, they were proper bogging, it was quite embarrasing really, now they are spotles again, so a VAX is highly recommended so much better than the s**t u get in cans!!!!!

Can you suggest me some homemade techniques to clean Professional carpet cleaning Kamloopsthe carpet and not destroying the texture of carpet? Once I tried to clean my carpet on my own but my carpet was destroyed completely. So now I don't want to do that again.

A decent auto interior shampoo (either foam based in a can, or spray based like Autoglym interior shampoo) and a soft brush works well
