Car carpet shampoo should be used to improve the appearance of the interior of your vehicle, and will also remove dirt and bad odors from the carpets. The shampoo should be used each time you clean the interior of your vehicle.

You Will Need:

Step 1 – Vacuum the Carpets

Prior to using the car shampoo, you need to remove dust, dirt and other debris from the carpets, as this will make the shampooing easier. You may use a wet or dry vacuum cleaner.

Use a degreaser on the carpets, as these will remove persistent stains and dirt. Allow the carpets to dry for 30 minutes.

Make a solution using 1 part of car carpet shampoo and 5 parts water, and mix until foam is formed. Put the solution in a sprayer, and apply the solution on the carpets. Spray equally on all areas of the carpets.

Get a stiff brush and scrub the carpets, making sure to cover all areas. Use circular moves and insist on stained areas. Rinse with clean water.
