    Meguiar`s detailer d101

    So whats the thoughts on the d101 as a interior cleaner for filthy vehicles? the reason im asking is cause i hate having to use so much of the expensive cleaners like wolfgang and blackfire just to get a work vehicle cleaned that`ll be trashed in a week to a few months, and with the cost of 2 gallons about the same as 1 of blackfire interior and them being dilutable to strength i need sounds really appealing. Like the other day when i did the sleeper semi interior i went through over a quart of cleaner just for walls and such.

    It is my current go to All Purpose Cleaner, I have a bottle diluted at 4:1 that I occasionally use for tires or more stubborn interior areas and a bottle at 1:10 for interior and exterior cleaning. For the price it is a very low risk cost to try it out. 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.

    It should be great. The trick (if you dont already) is to spray and let dwell.

    The problem I`ve had in past with spraying and letting it dwell is the runs that would occur and occasionally stain

    I presume it doesn`t work well if you need d101 inside?

    I think it works well, i just feel that using a steamer in some cases are just to slow. I also generally use it for cleaning seats and such and have a natural oil called purify in it that kills odor causing bacteria, so it is hard to use it on vinyl. I`ve also had it where it started to take off some of the coloring of the dyed dash as i was removing the caked on grease from years of neglect.

    Could i be doing it wrong ,I`m sure i might as I ended up teaching myself how to use it. I got it long before i even heard of autopia or the evil twin ag. iIt was something that i thought of might help especially when i had friends who have some drastic allergies and reactions to different scents and such.

    I have yet to find an interior my little McCulloch couldn`t tackle

    Steam kills bacteria too

    I don`t work on oil stains or anything so I guess I could see a need for other than steam at times.

    Several years back I steam cleaned a headliner on a Prius that I guess the previous owner was a heavy smoker and it came off pretty well.

    I guess I`ve never seen a nicotine stain if that wasn`t it

    more the nicotine on the vinyl fabric it`ll come out, but on vinyl it will work but takes so much more time. If i use the steamer on vinyl i generally charge extra.

    Did you try agotating with boars hair brush or tampicl brush? Generally works well withy steamer as its not as powerful as the fancy ones
