Blue Coral Carpet / Upholstery cleaner: Photos included

I decided to take my interior apart, and vaccum and shampoo the carpeting in the car. It is the original carpet. I removed the brand new one, due to my friend spilling a lot of super glue on it. I figured hey, I bet I can make my carpet look good again. I wish I had before photos to show you.. but lets just say 11 years ... I got this car from a smoker.... who never even vaccumed it... ever... Yeah. The carpet was covered in soot, and brown stains, coffee, food etc.. I couldnt figure out if some of it was blood, or what? But anyway I just wanted to say if you have a sunday off like I did today.. pick yourself up a bottle of blue coral carpet cleaner and go to work. I used the "dry clean" one. You spray it on, and then supply your own brush to work it into the carpeting with. I used a nylon scrub brush, brand new of course as to not bring contaminants to my carpet.

Heres pics of the finished product.. Just follow what it says on the can and you should have great results. (Put effort into scrubbing, the harder you work, the harder it works.)






I spent about 10 minutes removing the front and rear seats. I spent 20 seconds spraying the product onto the carpeting.. and I spent about 30 minutes scrubbing al 4 sections of floor, and the sides etc. Those photos are the result, and the carpet is still a little wet there.. the carpet is a lighter color then what is pictured (sorta.)

Good luck to those of you who take the time to do this! ~ Brett

I've always wondered all this works - did you ever use a vacuum to suck up anything afterwards?

Yes, I forgot to mention that, after you scrub it really well, you will losen up particles of dirt / sand etc.. and you'll want to keep the car doors open for a while. I left the doors open for about an hour or so after scrubbing, before I vaccumed the carpet 1 last time.. Gives it time to dry out.. sucking up moisture could be bad for your vaccums filtertration system otherwise.

Armorall cleaning wipes, then meguiars gold class wipes, then a 3 in 1 leather clean protect conditioner.. do all 3 steps and find new life in that old dead hide you sit on as you ride!

Yes, haha I am anal. But.. when you sit in my car and ask yourself "holy **** is this a 2006 model?!?" you'll see why I go through all this trouble,

Estimated lether treatment time if you are a freekin' OCD maniac like me and try to make things like new.. well it took me about 20 mins per seat. It's well worth it, good luck!

So the process you did was vacuum, Blue Coral spray and srub, dry, and then vacuum again?

Brian: yes, but I didnt get the carpet totally dry before I vaccumed again, I had to spray it a couple times, and scrub a couple times to get the stains out.. some are harder to get then others, but with a lot of time and effort, you can rub just about any crap in the carpet, out.

I've been toying with the idea of getting an extractor, a wet/dry vacuum, or a steam cleaner for detailing the interior. But I'd rather give this a shot first rather than spending lots of money for a decent one.

The can of stuff costed like $5.00 .. The nylon scrub brush I used, costed maybe $3.00 and the more you work at it, the better your results will be $8.00 and maybe 1.5 -2 hours, and your carpet will have a whole new look to it. (depending on what the heck spilled all over it.)

I'm assuming the above few posts are some sort of scripted spam chat to advertise carpet cleaning? lol. Mods may want to look into it.

Hello guys just want to induce active discussion of upholstery and carpet cleaning products. I am not here to advertise but want to know which methods and solutions you use to keep these expensive elements clean. Just got new carpets and seats for my car so your views will be of great help.
