DETAILING CARPET

Not sure when last time the Honda was detailed and 2007 at 175K, need a good carpet shampoo. Detailing by a pro will run $100 + depending on dirt and type of service. Full tilt interior and exterior can be $200 +.

Towel blotting the nasty stains seems to work, start out lest aggressive cleaner and move up to most aggressive. Try and determine the stain type and if an alkaline or acid cleaner is needed. Example. Water, water and detergent, straight distilled vinegar, ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, isopropyl alcohol. http://www.dawnchemical.com/shop/scripts/page.asp?p=_chemistryofcleaning&s=dawnchemical
