Best Way to Clean Mouldy & V Dirty Seats?

Hi All,

Anyone got any ideas using general household cleaners (ie. - not specialist cleaning / detailing products that you can't get from a local supermarket)?

Cheers,

Wigster.

Aerosol carpet cleaner doesn't do a bad job, I think the one I used was made by Vanish

Thanks. I've used the Turtle Wax No. 1 cleaner, which is usually excellent for interiors, but it won't get the mould out. Need something fairly aggressive to get right through it. Will try that. Cheers

The Vanish stuff should do it, you just spray it on, work it in with a damp sponge then leave it to dry and vacuum it, mine came up very well.

1001 carpet and upholstery cleaner. Mix it with warm water, sponge it on the seats and go over with a nail brush. Then wet vac the seats. Brilliant stuff, been using it for years. Pound shops sell it too now!

Groom is brilliant too. I used it in conjunction with a soft upholstery brush on a car I brought stinking of dogs. Not only did it deodorise but the interior changed colour it removed so much filth. I've used it ever since and wouldn't use anything else.

Stardrops, that stuff is mental, used it helping a neighbour clean out the mould from his golf that had been standing for 8 years, had LOTS of mould on the seats, windscreen seal was leaking pulled approx 16 litres of water out of the carpet. Diluted it 5 parts water to 1 part stardrops, plus it doesn't smell too bad.
