    many answers are but a search away

    If not too nasty then spray folex on a terry towel and wipe in one direction. Try not to saturate the liner or you risk delamination.

    Re: Best way to clean headliner?

    For spot cleaning I use Woolite and water mix in a spray bottle, mist on and agitate with a tooth brush. Then follow up with a dry towel press & wipe. I do the steps as quickly as possible to avoid soaking the material. Do not saturate, like mentioned above. Depending on the headliner material it could respond differently so I would try a test spot first with what ever you use, make sure to let the test spot dry before you come to your conclusion. If you proceed without testing you could end up making the headliner look like it has an animal print, lol, whoops. Now for cleaning the whole headliner....never tried it and don't know if I dare to. I would like to see what others post for techniques for cleaning the whole headliner.

    This is generally what I do.

    But IID's Ultima method has my interest peaked.

    This is my method as well. For tough stubborn stains or a really heavily soiled headliner. I vacuum it first, then go over it with my steamer and a terry cloth wrapped around the end. Works great!
