    Carpet cleaner

    I need some carpet cleaner now. I don't have time to order it as I am working my vehicle now. I just need a suggested product that I can get from the local parts store - Advance or Autozone. I'd appreciate any suggestion.

    Thanks

    Ooops I think this is the wrong forum. Moderator, please move to the appropriate forum.

    Re: Carpet cleaner

    I really like Griots Interior Cleaner for an OTC product.

    Little to no scent, and doesn't seem harsh. Some swear by Folex(Lows or HD) but for some reason I'm not a big fan of it.

    I don't like the OTC aerosol foam ones at all, most seem to leave a residue behind.

    Re: Carpet cleaner

    Any particular type of stain you are working on?

    If you have coffee stains, I would use vinegar first. Folex might work, but I'm not sure. Either way treat them before using a basic (higher pH) cleaner.

    Oil and grease, spot clean with a non pumice hand cleaner. Preferably citrus based.

    Re: Carpet cleaner

    Probably a bit late, but what are you trying to accomplish? A particular stain removal, or just general cleaning?

    Re: Carpet cleaner

    Thanks everyone. Just general cleaning. I haven't cleaned the carpet since I purchased the vehicle in 2013 (Sequoia), even though the mats take all the abuse. It's not dirty, dirty, but just never been cleaned. I detailed the truck often.

    Hmm, yeah I use folex tirst on specific bad spots. Then using a HD shampoo for the rest due to the price of Folex. You can always use a good APC. You don't have to spend a ton of money on a lot of special items your APC is versatile.
