Headliner cleaning
« on: 28 December 2017, 01:09:11 PM »
I have a couple of grubby dark finger marks on the edge of my headlining near the top of the rear door, and wondered what sort of cleaner that would be best to use?

Wynns foaming upholstery cleaner is what we used when we inevitably got a mark in a customers car, however we only ever used it when the mark or grease was fresh but it always cleaned stuff up well. Sometimes too well like the smokers car when we got a grease mark on the headlining and when we removed it we made a small white patch and you could see the rest of the interior was yellow/orange from tar.

I don't think this car has been smoked in. Well it doesn't look/smell like it, so hopefully not. I think I have some foam upholstery cleaner somewhere, but not sure if it is the same brand. It worked on the headliner of my Peugeot 107 when that got some water marks near the tailgate glass ;)

A good upholstery cleaner such as AutoGlym or Meguiars, and a +1 for Wynns - easily available from Halfrauds. Be careful to not scrub to hard on the headlining as you might end up damaging the surface and making one area look a bit 'fluffy'   :o
