    ammonia and water to clean cloth seats and carpets. i know the smell , but ammonia does not leave anything in the fabric to resoil. i mix it in a bucket with water , dunk in a towel wring out and wipe all the fabric down , dunking and wring out as you go .i one time did a cars headliner that had heavy smoke on it and it came out like new although it many buckets of solution, and because you dont soak the head liner it did not fall down, and they used the car for 2 years. useing water and ammonia and just damp wiping, the fabric dries very fast. if you can get pass the smell you got it licked

    Re: Tell everyone one of your best detailing secrets!

    I used many secrets and improvisations in the old days before there were all these cool products that serve all purposes like we have today. Comet cleanser and a scrub brush were used to clean tires now we have dedicated tire and wheel cleaners. When I was out of Comet, I used a soapy Brillo pad to clean the tires especially the white walls. Windex with newspaper was used to clean glass. Now we have dedicated glass cleaners with a variety of glass towels. Formula 409 was used to clean the dash and the interior and then we finished it up with Lemon Pledge. Now we have our favorite OPCs and interior protectants. Lemon Pledge also doubled as a tire dressing.
    Those were my secrets in 1973. No secrets necessary today.

    Re: Tell everyone one of your best detailing secrets!

    One thing I like to do is to take the Famous Detailing Brush and put it in my cordless drill. Then I use it to scrub tough spots on the interior and also exterior trim. I keep it on a lower speed and use it with Meguiar's APC.

    This really helped me out quite a bit on this dodge truck I worked on a while back as the interior door panels were really nasty and I just don't think normal scrubbing by hand would have done as nice of a job. It aslo worked great on the cup holders as well as many other problem areas. Even the center console, and the door panel storage.

    comet cleanser on a red scotchbrite pad works great on white walls and white letters in case it hasn't been said,,,,I too have used newspaper to do windows with but the only I used Pledge for was inside of conversion vans or woodgrain station wagons
