Hey, It's me. I've been here forever I know. I just wanted to let you all know that while I currently don't represent a Car Care company, that doesn't mean I don't have a plethora of detailing knowledge that I won't share. If anyone has detailing questions, products, process, whatever, just post it up.

I am more than happy to help.

Bought some 3SS leather and suede seatcovers
and they are beyond dirty

First,just wondering if my best bet would be to grab a toothbrush
and warm soapy water and go to town on the leather, then
follow up with a conditioner

And second, what is the best way to clean the suede?...

I have contemplated taking them to the drycleaner so they
can hit them with some steam- but I thought that might be
too agressive...

Let me know, Thanks

How's the SS ?
Thanks for asking! The SS is running fine, knock on wood. A year into the built 70E, and that thing is legit. I'd like to park it, but me not being able to detail for 7 months kinda broke my wallet.

There are clearly a few ways to clean your seats up. For the "Leather" pieces. I have found a couple quality cleaners over the years that really knock out the large interiors we have with ease. I know personally that something like Adam's Leather and Interior Cleaner combined with a towel and or interior brush will make short work of the "leather." Just make sure that when you use a cleaner like that, you condition the "leather" back up so it stays soft and supple. There are lots out there I like. Just happen to have a few larger bottles of Adam's and SCG on the shelf. For the "suede" or alacantara, I can't say it any better than my close friend Dylan put it, in this post...

I am here at my desk all day...fire off whatever questions you have!



Thanks for asking! I am now taking appointments again both for detailing, and also for teaching...either way. Only stipulation is I am not mobile.

Please PM me with a list of what you would like done, and to what, and I will be more than happy to get you an estimate and lead time.

Thanks!

Hey there, many questions for you. I've just started out in the detailing world. I've done only a handful of vehicles. I'm from a cold part of Canada. So cold, we actually don't use salt, it does nothing lol. However I bought my SS from the east coast where salt is common. And I have what can be described as salt chunks I'm the carpet that barely budge with 60psi of steam any suggestions? I'm using a cyclo polisher, can you recommend a heavy grit cutting agent?

To get the salt off the carpet? I'd look into the Cyclo brushes, and some Folex. Must agitate out.
