It's really good on any kind of dirt, dust, sticky marks, scuffs, grease etc....carpets, fabric and leather. I use mine neat, but it can be diluted too. Smells antibacterial so good for leaving a clean smell to the car

I cleaned my interior the other day.

Seats
I used a 1:10 dilution of Valet Pro APC ( peach scented )
I added this to a squirty bottle and covered the cloth
Agitated with a brush and excesses removed with microfibre
The seats look brand new!

As for the leather/vinyl bolsters I used gliptone leather cleaner and conditioner.

Use distilled water in the APC mix though for upholstery.

2 weeks ago i picked up my brand new 118D sport and yesterday i took my boss to pick up lunch and the soup burst in the bag, to his defence he let it scald him, but some creeped onto the part of the seat which extends out (for the thigh i think) whats the best product to get it cleaned up without rubbing carpet cleaning services coquitlam and i don't want to bobble it, i noticed the interior upholstery was a bit sturdier than my old 116i se so hopefully it will come off easier.

For any Soup stain, whipped detergent works well. Fill a container with half dish detergent, half water, and use a hand mixer to whip it up. Use a rag to rub the froth into the spot, and then rinse with water.

If it doesn't work then you can use Steam cleaning.

Hii guys,

I have also use the bottle of FAB few days ago for stain remover.It is really good. It will clean fabric and hard surface area too.

It is low foam cleaner and stain remover. We can use it with both hot and cold water. It has a very pleasant fragrance. It can be easily used for every household tasks.

I personally liked it very much.
