Well, I'm not turbomgnt, and although he would know best I'll tell you what I can. I had a job as a carpet cleaner. To clean fabrics without a machine (extraction) and simply use chemicals such as a spray product you just rub in, you aren't actually removing any dirt or stain. These products use 'optical brighteners', chemicals which enhance the natural color of the fabric and reduce the appearance of foreign substance. This improvement is sometimes only temporary and the stain can reappear over time. My recommendation is to start with a good vacuum. Then pre-treat spots with a product like armor all oxi-magic or similar, these products have actual enzymes to dissolve the stain rather than just cover it up like many other products. Then, at many self serve car washes, they have a 'dry foam' shampoo which is not true extraction but helps to an extent. You vacuum the upholstery, then apply this foam shampoo generously and rub it in. You wait a day or so until the moisture dries. The foam does contain optical brighteners, but also encapsulates and crystallizes foreign objects such as soil and stains. You then vacuum thoroughly. Its not nearly as thorough as steam or regular extraction, but less expensive and visually effective :tonqe:

they have this at any car wash, i havent seen one in Toronto so far. I'll look again, is there a way to do it without a special vacuum machine, just to bring the clotch back to its brighter original color. i mean all that is wrong is they are a little dusty, no stains or nothing, i just thought i'd spruce em up before i installed them.

i looked at that armor all oxy-magic and i read be careful because it is strong stuff and could ruin your cloth, i forget what it said, by removing color or something..
