Re: time for a spring cleaning.......need suggestions (SxyGrkGirlWithAJettaGLX)

I recently did my interior, and it came out pretty good. I used Blue Coral upholstery cleaner, which works much like the OxiClean or Turtle Wax interior cleaners, though I can't vouch for those. I bought mine at Advance Auto, though I also got it at Target. It's turns up in a lot of places. Here's what it looks like. http://www.bluecoral.com/
My technique was to spray it on the upholstery (headliner, etc) and then scrub with a stiff nylon brush. I also sprayed it onto the nylon brush. (this product comes with a nylon brush top attached to the can, but it's meant more for spot cleaning on the go). I then let that sit for a few minutes before soaking up the foam with a moistened detailing cloth, which I rinse in a bucket of clean water. This stuff works magic. And it smells nice, too. My interior, which is light grey, looks like new.

As for leather, I dont have it, but I would definitely go Meguiar's or Lexol and follow directions on bottle. These are what the pro's use.

If you have leather seats, you should have leather door cards as well. I personally use Lexol on the seats, doors, dash and trim.

I think Griots products are fantastic but they tend to be more expensive than say Meguiars, lexol, ect. plus you have to order it from their website. For off the shelf stuff I'd say Lexol http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
