    Time to break out some stain cleaner + my Bissell spotclean proheat:

    (the headrest was cleaned/drying separately)

    Mmmmm, seat juice (inside the spotclean's "dirty" reservoir)...



    *barf*

    So. Much. Better.



    I`ll give another once over tonight before I install it but man am I happy to have a Bissell spotcleaner. Such a useful tool.

    Anyone have any tips on uninstalling/ installing car seats? Seems straight forward enough.
    Just look and see if it has any electrical plugs. I unbolt the front and slide the seat forward then unbolt the rear. This is when I unhook my plug for my seats. Then it's lift up and out it comes. Granted that's easier as I have a extended cab truck with suicide doors so it's room for days on seat removal.

    [last night]

    I helped/showed my friend how to rinseless wash with Mckee's N-914... He needed to knock a ton of dust/dirt off of his 1968 Camaro that's being restored.

    I didn't take any before shots but it was filthy.



    It's been painted and wetsanded [but not polished]. He got it back from his paint guy so he can get to work on installing the engine, interior, etc.



    I did a super clean on the windshield.



    Cleaned the wheels & tires + dressed them with Hyper Dressing. [those wheels are temporary]

    Thanks for the feedback. It did have 3 plugs under the seat which getting unplugged with one hand while propping the unbolted seat up with the other and being mindful the whole time not to bump the horn and wake everyone up proved to be the hardest part of the process last night. Getting the old seat out/ new seat in would have been way easier with suicide doors! But I managed ok. All in all it took about an hour to do last night.

    Old seat out and now it's time to vaccumm....

    Re: What did you do today detailing related?

    So I had some extra time after work again and the car had 2 days of dust on it....yep, Worx PowerShot time! I like the soap dispenser attachment so I soaked the car down and had about 2 gallons of water left in the bucket, so I sprayed some soap into that bucket and put in my mf mit and washed the car down.

    I then sprayed some CG's sticky citrus on the wheel faces and barrels and let it dwell while I changed attachments. I then rinsed the soap off and grabbed my medium Big Blue and Griot's PFM towel and dried the whole car. Big Blue was thrown and dragged over the majority of the car before it was damp and the GG PFM knocked out the rest. This is now my go to tag team for drying off the car. Since there's so much beading the towels get soaked compared to doing RW and WW's but that's to be expected, duh

    Ahhhhh, a clean car once again heading into the warm up coming our way, there's clean and now there's CLEAN

    After having Wolfgang uber rinse less wash for about 2 months, I was finally able to relieve my itch to use it. I pre-soaked the panels with QD dilution of Uber RW in a 16oz bottle(not sure but is QD dilution ratio the right amount for a pre-soak?) Followed by a two bucket method with Uber and a megs microfiber wash mitt. The last picture was after taking it out to a local diner and hitting some drizzle, it looked as if the rain didn't touch my car.
