    I use a very similar process with FOLEX and love it. I also just use a shop vac for extraction.

    Thanks a lot! I always hate feeling like I could have done more but with some of these jobs you have to get out before you over invest time and the payout isn't worth it any longer.

    She got me a nice Sandia I've had my eye on! Hoping it is a lot better than my current equipment

    Please tell me more on your process because that looks amazing. Especially what looks like grease spots

    I do the same process you do, inside the car obviously I dont soak down the carpets but for these I vacuumed them, got them nice and wet with low pressure water NOT SOAKED DOWN, sprayed very liberally the FOLEX, drill brush (yellow), power washer rinse, shop vac, then let dry. These results arent real common LOL. Interior of cars I do about the same as above without the initial wet down. The drill brush sure saves a ton of elbow grease...Ill have to take your advice on the pressure sprayer too and hopefully save some more!
