Upholstery - Fabric Clensing

Post by BigC » Sun Jun 16, 2013 9:33 am

Having acquired a basic 116i ES, I am not privvy to leather upholstery (but would bloody sure as hell love some :lol: ) Anyway I am stuck with a standard black cloth material on seats and armrests which seems to show up all marks even rain-spots. I'm sure somebody else out there is in the same predicament...What would be the best cleaning product/s to enhance and protect/seal this type of 1 series upholstery if any
Regards
C
Would ideally love a full leather interior...but I guess this will have to do for now :)

Autobrite FAB is purpose made for this sort of stuff, and sprayed onto a microfibre, it will happily wipe down (and clean) door cards, plastics, dash trim etc...

For any 'embedded muck' - spray the fabric and use a nail brush to clean :-)

For protectant try this http://www.carpro.uk.com/cquartz-fabric ... oat-100ml/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; I've got it on our other car which suffers badly from water stains on the seats when opening the rear doors, it seems to be working well

Well there are many products which are available for upholstery cleaning of leather and fabric seats, but I think the best solution is you should try some fabric cleaners and if you find anyone best for you then use that always. Good luck mate..
If at first you don’t succeed, call it version 1.0

Hello,

I purchased a velvet sofa last year, but it doesn't clean properly from us so I want an upholstery cleaning service.
