Reason being heavily used for transportation & so huge to look after....
Due to the numerous posting, i have fequents call from many forumers..asking me how this & that.....
for those who happen to call me, i usually explain it in details
looking at the current condition & how to get it detail (DIY)...
as i have conducted many classes , hoping other may too empowered to do it themselves
How to clean, dress your car interior the professional way:-
or alternative you can spend some $$$ send it to others to clean it...one of my friends just send her Altis to clean her leather seats to Cxx Ixxxxxxxx cost her 350 just to clean the seats & she paid 650 to subscribe as the member.......
@#$%^^& ..if the car can talk he will tell you how it was treated..LOL
here is what you can used, to get the job done...remember the Merz S class filty interior, the Ferrari F 355, BMW M3 convertables, Camry - smoking driver damages...i used the following stuff to detail them
1. Brushes - get plenty various brushes.....ikea, diashio, 100 yen shops must be soft bristle
hard brushes for wheel brush for tyres only,
soft painting brushes for emblem rims (as it is clear coated) trims, interior
long brushes for wheel arch accesability,
soft hair brushes for leathers,
soft plastic bristle for fabric - seats & cushion, dash board, car seats,
tips....please do not use strength, check periodicaly of the cleaners, do not spray cleaners directly on any surface but brushes..to spread evenly rather than to agitate any surface...when the cleaning agent etched in(please please be extra gentle )
Meguiars APC - good but expensive
alternative Osren MPC - value for $$$ (www.osren.com)
My preffered & iots is safe for clear coat too OPT POWER CLEAN
Leathers cleaner OSREN..... ( i do not recomend to ise All In One ....2 in 1 products) most
leathers cleaners & polisheer & conditioner has 90 % Cleaning & 10 % cleaning - so what do u want to clean or condition ???)
the professional only choose the individual cleaners & individual
conditioner... as by their experiences they know what work best
FAB Breeze ...ma ma mia products..good on fabrics (only)....please rinse off with damp cloths well
alternative...try to get hold of industry strength carpet cleaner such as...
Johnson diversified....Taski 1 ...excellant product...PH safe & 3:100 part of water dilutions
i even used it on interior & work very well on leathers too...
3. Micro fibers
I used different cloths for different parts of the car, (we do not use floor cloths on our face)
same thing over here too......
2 for drying the car
1 for washing
2 for polishing & compounding purposes
2 for interior
old microfibers - pls dont throw ...recycle reuse them.....wheels, rims, engine compartment,
lowest car skirt area....most dirty & greasy area
TIPS - washing the dirty micro fibers i used dynamo, fab is cheaper...most of the time i will spray
on with OSREN MPC (www.osren.com)
soak over night - best to scrub, do not use softerner on yr all yr micro fibers (as it will lubricate
yr fibers & not allowing it to absorb any dirt)
Micro fibers single strands is like our single strand of human hair but divided into 16 parts...each
parts acts as to hold & traps dirt
4, pails....at least 2 -3 of them....one for the seats rinsing, another for dirt...door jams, side panel
rinsings, my last bucket for dirty side step, pedals
5. STEAMers if u can....steam it up...less harsh as compare to the conventional cleaning...as it
uses water steams at 3 bar preassure to clean...alternative way to clean
6. dressing - Leathers Meguiars Aloe leather conditioners, Optimum leather protectant ...alternatively yr expensive lorenzo...cleaning kit...it is the same but very expensive indeed
7. plastic & vinyl - please do not apply tyre shines here....or else it will attract dust & transfers to your sleevs....i say u spend a little & a bottle of Meguiars gold class interior & will last u for years)
nope on sun of the gun la, wxxxx, Kxxx, Txxxx Wxx la...later you will not want their after effect dirt
lastly you have to prepare to get dirty inorder to clean, the way up is down
