Re: Cloth interiors

Vacuum. Go to supermarket and buy some sort of upholstery cleaner and sponge. Spray on and then use wet (warm water) sponge to wipe the cloth. Leave to dry. Buy scotchguard fabric protect from Robert Dyas and use to protect the interior.

Re: Cloth interiors

Oh no problem, forgot to mention you'd best check the chemicals on a discreet area of upholstery before apply all over. Never had a problem myself but you never know.

Re: Cloth interiors

Also you might want to use one of those "get hairs out of cloths tape roll" -thingys as vacuuming might not get all that hair out if it's been pushed far into the seats. Also they tend to remove even more dirt after vacuum.

If you can get your hands on a interior cleaning sponge (one with a terry cloth surface) you'll really get the stains off. regular car washing sponges are a bit too soft to loosen dirt (and some will even crumble when scrubbed)
