Help Interior cleaning products?

Hi All,

Just wondering what the best products are for cleaning the interior of my 145. In particular the seats (non leather, the facelift type with the red alfa romeo script) and also the mats (these are a little grubby).

I'll try and get some pics of the interior up later so you can see the stains etc. Hopefully this will help.

Cheers all

Jerome

sorry to drag up an old thread, but i too have the same interior in my 'now roadworthy' 145, and it is in a bad way. i am getting my mum, who used to be a seamstress, to repair a few bits on the bdrivers seat bolster, and then i want to give the whole interior a damn good blitz the seats are filthy, the carpets are no better, and the mats.... well, i am going to get some new ones also, all of the trim, mostly sort of off white plastic, is looking a bit ropey. any suggestions for (not massively expensive) cleaning products will be greatfully received, as will any links for good new mats

cheers all,
Lee

I've found A***G**m Interior Shampoo to be good for my (annoyingly cream) carpets (both in the car and the flat ))

I love the way it works on pretty much any flexible surface. The waterproof toilet roll amazes a lot of people

My current favourite = Autosmart Brisk.....works as a great shampoo when used in a spray bottle(25% Brisk - 75%water) and it also has optical brighteners aswell as smelly very very nice. You can also use it in a wet vac if needed.
