    Wow, that's messed up...

    I would have to guess that the carpet would be cruchy

    I'm not looking to put too much time, effort and money into this. I just have a few spots I'd like to get rid of. I won't be taking out the interior and carpet. If Resolve and Folex don't get them out, then they get to stay. I'll do this on Thursday when I'm off next.

    Today I did phase one of my interior cleaning. I bought some Folex and cleaned the front passenger floor and seat, as well as the entire rear floor and seat. Folex is quite impressive as it either cleaned or faded 10+ years of dirt, mud, cola, dog crap, grease/oil stains. The only thing it didn't do anything to was some red Gatorade stains. I'm going to let all that stuff dry for a week then put my floor mats back in then I'll do phase two which is cleaning my driver's seat and floor and the door panels. I took some "before" pics but I'll wait until next week after everything is done to post some "after" pics.
