    In this video I show how to clean dirty cloth car seats, and specifically how to manage your expectations as a professional auto detailer in this are. This specific vehicle had a herd of dogs make their home inside of it, ON TOP OF THE CAR UPHOLSTERY, all winter long! On top of that, the car is over a decade old, and has never been detailed... needless to say, this is a good time to talk about expectations! Here I share with you my 3 INTENSE steps I take in order to clean these cloth car seats to the highest level of perfection that I believe is possible for a situation like this. These three steps, coupled with the right tools and products, may prove to be the difference between and average job, and a GREAT detail job! Follow along as I let you all in on some of my detailing secrets in cleaning DISGUSTING car upholstery seats!

Great job and information. However wear a cheap surgical mask while you spray that stuff. The lung damage is cumulative. You might not notice it now but down the line.

What do people do to their cars? In 20 years (same car), my seats have never got to that stage. In fact, I've only had to lightly clean them, and did a steam extraction cleaning about 5 years ago.

Steam for the win.  My foster dog horked in the back of my car this weekend - was given a cheapie auto steamer awhile ago and finally hooked it up and gave it a go (after trying just a wipe down, and after trying a carpet cleaner) - the steam absolutely blasted the stains out of the cloth.  Absolutely AMAZING.  Will never try and clean the inside of a car without it again. P.S. works great around the house too - my grout freakin SPARKLES now

Question: Citrol or Rapid Remover on interior stains and why?

Use a carpet/upholstery brush for drill or da they can remove tough stain and do the dirty work for you.

Wilson Auto Detailing Mate it's powerful and makes the rug doctor and the Bissell extractor look like toys. The dry vacuuming is very strong too, leaves my dyson for dead. Highly recommended. Comes with a normal carpet extractor head and a hand attachment for cars or lounges etc. Numatic George look it up 😉 there's also a smaller version called numatic Henry.

I've heard that it's a good idea to rinse upholstery with diluted vinegar after scrubbing with an all purpose cleaner or degreaser like superclean since any residue left behind can attract more dirt afterwards. You can see that happening as that embedded dirt started wicking to the surface before you used the extractor with water. You can probably take it a step further by mixing that rinse tank with vinegar as well, and once it's dry vinegar is a great deodorizer. This is the process I use on carpeting.

Would not your Tornador ZV-240 Velocity-Vac Dry have been more efficient and effective? It would replace the VX 5000 Steamer and the Rug Doctor Portable Extractor. Instead of waiting for the VX 5000 to heat up (at least twice) and then going over the same area a second and third time with the Rug Doctor Portable Extractor it would accomplish everything in one step shortening the actual time and increasing the profitability of the job?

I would have to disagree, in the situation a steamer an extractor definitely would do a better job simply because you need the heat and the powerful extraction and you can’t get both of those things in such a great way as with these two separate machines

Luke...try tide cold water clean fresh scent diluted 10:1 for stains/odors on fabric seats...I don’t use it on carpet because if not properly rinsed out it can leave the carpet a little crunchy in my opinion....u could use the steamer to break down the product and also disinfect while u deodorize and leave a great scent behind...I use spray nine full strength coupled with the steamer for carpeting to deodorize and sanitize
