05-07 Cloth Interior GRAY
Does any one have a trick to get this clean?

I have tried just about everything.

Soaking them down with hose and vacume them dry

scrub with damp rag

sprayed with cloth cleaner and wiped in. i have some stains on the passanger side from my x girlfriend spilling soda and in the back, well lets not go there ;) ideas or remedies to get this crappy cloth clean.

I just wiped it down nice 2 times today and left my windows open in my garage.

I get my car cleaned every day at the wash im a clean freak this is the only thing that is dirty on my truck. if i cant get them cleaned im going to have to re do the interior or sell the truck lol

I had a company called DirtFree come by my place in a big ass truck with a huge machine which seemed a little overkill but they steemed cleaned my interior and it looks brand new. Plan on spending about 150.00 for this type of job. Check your local carpet cleaning companies and they might have that option for you. I have the grey cloth interior too and it doesnt look pretty when it gets stained, The best 150 dollars ive ever spent. well worth it.

I too, had a detail shop clean me up for about 50 bucks, but it was sub par. You will be much better off giving those carpet cleaning companies a call and getting the job done right the first time.

for the stains use shout let it sit for 24 hours then clean. to get rid of the water stains when cleaning, use a super clean towel soaked in hot water and always wet/clean to the seam

you can also try using apc+ at 10:1 ratio and 4:1 ratio and then rinse with wet microfiber towel(with water) and should work.

this worked for my seats in an 08

Re: 05-07 Cloth Interior GRAY
ya cant use harsh cleaning agents on the 05-07 seats....they will stain becasue the foam soaks up the soap and then its tough to get it to rinse. You end up with seats that keep releasing the soap, drying and then staining from the dried soap. There is a TSB for cleaning these seats...i suggest following that tsb to the letter.

Re: 05-07 Cloth Interior GRAY
yeah...the fabric on those seats was terrible. They stain just from plain ole' water.....

the worst was rain water just getting in/out
