I have never used a steam cleaner, I have always just used a home carpet cleaner with a hose attachment and I've had great results. Evening you don't think your carpets are dirty you would be surprised at the dirty water that gets sucked out of them.

I don't know how many I've done for friends and family to sell. Sometimes it feels more like I do more for free than I get paid for!

None of you have mentioned Lemon Pledge wipes. I have a friend with years of experience detailing older/antique cars. He has a 57 Chevy convertible that does a lot of parades toting beauty queens and was once in a production of Grease. He uses Lemon Pledge wipes on his interior surfaces. Thoughts?

Never thought to use them, I generally though of them as wood surface cleaner rather than plastic.

I can't say for sure, but I wouldn't think Pledge has any sort of UV protection at all! Not something that I would even think about using on a car.

Agreed, but to each his own if it works.

I've tried them on the dash and they do leave a nice shine and pleasant smell.

Back to Black works great on the dash in my opinion it leaves it shining for weeks.

As others have said, never used them before, curious as to what the pH level is and what the wk interior can handle

Okay, I have a quick question.
First, I am thinking about possibly starting a little detailing business on the side. Nothing extravagant, just looking for some extra cash. I really hate doing interiors, namely carpets. What does everyone recommend for cleaning carpets and floor mats? Is there a trick way, or a trick application that works best?

Secondly,
What does everyone do in regards to stains on wheels? I have tried a lot of products, and can't really find one that takes the brownish/yellowish stains off of wheels. You name it, I've tried it but nothing works.
