    Get yourself a tampico brush, boars hair brush too (for fancy leather, ect)

    tampico brush and steam on door panels is great

    Soccer moms love the sanitation aspect of steam

    I might do a lot of Mopars, but I could make an absolute killing locally if I wanted to do more interiors.

    they`ll pay 200 for full interior before 200 for 1 step + lsp (aio)

    There is no need to let it dwell. It can cause staining on leather if it is left on to long. To avoid staining on leather, spray it directly on to the towel or onto a brush and work it in and remove. For plastics spraying directly onto a microfiber works just fine. The only thing I don`t like about APC is that it leaves leather feeling tacky. Following up with a damp microfiber towel helps. I prefer D181 to clean leather. It`s not as tacky feeling as APC.

The 1:10 mixture has taken care of pretty much anything I`ve used it for, good stuff and I just bought the 2 gallon deal with the sprayer bottle from the Autopia store to restock on it. I use it for wheels too when they are not filthy, saves me from using up my more expensive cleaners like Sonax/Ferrex and such.
    Like I said before I think megiuars are way overlooked on their products.

    Re: Meguiar`s detailer d101

    I have some megs APC that is at least 7-8 years old that looks different from the current product. It is blue rather than green. Is this the same formula as the product you guys are talking about. IIRC my gallon, which is about 1/4 full still, specifically mentions to use on interior surfaces. Which is all I have ever used it for and love it. I noticed some have mentioned using d101 on tires. Is it the same?

    civicclutch:
    I`ve used Megs D101 APC since I found out about it on this forum about 6 years ago. it`s a great APC that works on minor to medium dirty clean-up of interiors and engine compartments and wheel wheels. For REALLY dirty vinyl I found Optimum`s Power Clean to work , BUT not for fabric or carpets (it DOES work on those!) because of the less-than-pleasant fragrance the seems to linger within the fibers of fabric and carpets (Optimum does make a fabric-and-carpet-specific cleaner). Some have tried the Orange-Citrus based cleaners/degreasers, like Zep HD Citrus Degreaser, but I have no experience using it on vehicles. Another APC that does not garner much attention is Bio-Kleen`s Amazing. If you are lucky enough to find an RV store that carries the Bio-Kleen line, they may order it for you if it is not in stock. I think the 16 oz spray bottle is about $16.00 retail and the gallon is around $30.00.

    Your steamer is still the best way to clean in combination with a good APC, even if it takes a while to do so.

    This isn`t planned on being used on leather unless it is real bad from being a work truck but will be tested in small in seen area. But mostly plastic/vinyl parts

    If you want to order Meg`s Detailer Line from a brick and mortar store, try Bumper-to-Bumper Auto Parts Stores. Usually takes about three work days to get something from their warehouse. The upside is no shipping fee. The downside is their mark-up costs and state and local sales tax on the purchase price.
    Ask to enroll in their "Autoparts2020.com" program and you can get a 5% discount on OTC purchases with this card.
    Usually they do NOT stock it on the shelf because it is gallon-sized, but I did see the Megs Detailer Line D120 Glass Cleaner Concentrate gallon jug at the local store I frequent.
