    Best Way to Shampoo Cloth Seats??

    Ok, so to prempt this, I do know how to clean floor mats, etc. I have 303 spot remover and woolite both full strength and 8:1 in a sprayer.

    My concern is that I have a really bad Saturn sedan to do tomorrow that has been a pet shelter vehicle and is really spotted up and smelly. I'm concerned that if I have to use too much woolite suds and 303 spot remover that even the shop vac won't get all the soapy residue out. I can't afford to have it sopping wet too. So come on guys, what process works the best here?

    Maybe just use the wolite 8:1 and spot remover so it isn't too sudsy and hard to remove the soap residue?

    I wouldnt use Woolite 8:1 . I use that for carpet mats and need to use the power washer to get all the soap out. However, I do spray a good amount on. I think the best product for interior cleaning is DP total interior cleaner. It dries quickly, and doesnt leave a soapy feel later on. It actually softens the carpet very nicely. So I would go with that and Folex. If you dont have a carpet brush for the PC, then get one!

    You should of posted this earlier, I would of sent you some DP interior cleaner.

    Thanks Dan, I actually have 303 spot remover, which should work as well as Folex on seats. It's done wonders on my floor mat jobs.

    I dont even have any Folex, Im going to have to get some. The only downside to the DP, is it isnt too too strong. So youll definitely need to use Folex or 303 on the tougher spots. Good luck!

    BTW, I got the CK glaze today, thanks again.

    Hi, So Folex will work on cloth seats? Need to dilute? Who carries Folex? Thanks for your help.

    Will that have the same problem like Dan mentioned with the woolite where the soap is difficult to get out of the seats?

    I just feel like the seats will be so bad that the entire thing should be shampooed. I just don't want to soak the seats.
