    OK,car is going away for a full respray, i have about a week to clean 2 recaros,rear seats,floor mats and carpet...
    whats the best way to do it,seeing as now is my chance,
    i've already steamed cleaned the mats and they,re looking pretty good,
    recaros, i went round them with autoglym interior shampoo and a brush a bit softer than a toothbrush, i think they will need another going over or anyone got a better idea?
    what do people think about the actual floor carpet?ive read about power washing but will that not ruin the foamy bit underneath the carpet?
    all suggestions welcome!:welcome:

    use alcantara/suede cleaner from autobritedirect great product.

    for the carpet you could use many different fabric cleaners diluted with warm water. a wet extraction machine is a big plus

    I used a jet wash and some rug doctor. These seats aren't as delicate as you'd think. Cane up brand new.

    For the carpets I used some Vanish Power Foam! came up amazing and smells like its been in the washing machine! :)) Real easy to use as well. Its good for cleaning while its in the car, so one to consider for the future.
