Hey guys! I'm new to this site but, I am not new to detailing. I am in college and own a dealership in Washington and detail on the side for myself, others and a couple of friends dealerships. I noticed that there is a lot of focus on the exterior and paint but not a lot on the interior. I read a couple of the threads on what products everyone here was using to clean carpets and was surprised to see what they were using.
So here is what I use to clean carpets. This is the best and fastest way I have found to clean them. I have used Meguiars APC plus, oxy clean (stuff you can buy at walmart), another version of oxy clean that the auction detailers use (manheim and adesa) and simple green. Basically I have used a lot of different cleaners. The one that I found to work the best is this, Matrix Grand Slam (I use the scentless one)
Matrix Grand Slam SC TLC
So here is how I use it.
First, you follow the directions to dilute the product in a spray bottle or dump a little bit in an extractor if you have one (the stuff will last you forever as it is designed for cleaning commercial buildings).
Then spray it on your carpet and rub it in with a brush or your hands.
Let it sit for a while.... and then vacuum it up.
For mats (with pressure washer)
I usually mist it on and let it sit for a minute and then pressure wash it. They come out perfect every time
If you have an extractor.
Just put it in the solution tank and have at it.
Anyways, I just thought I would share this product with you guys as it has saved me time and money detailing cars.
