How to clean my headliner? I'm
 
Hello fellow PT Cruiser owners. I have noticed over the years that Hy headliner has gotten a little dirty in a couple of spots. My question is, how do I clean the headliner? I haven't cleaned it, because I'm scared that liquid will make the headliner sag. So please let me know how you clean your headliner.:D

I usually use the brush attachment on my shop vacuum and vacuum the entire headliner. I have found that this removes the majority of the dirt and also causes the least damage/problems.

I used carpet cleaner & a rag.

Ok, I don't own a shop vaccum, so I think I'll try the carpet cleaner. Thanks for everyone's help!:p

I've had good results using a weak solution of Simple Green and a micro fiber towels. Dampen the towel with simple green and clean the area turning the towel to a clean section and replacing the towel when it's dirty. When the area is clean do a clear water rinse with dampened micro fiber towels,

I've always wanted to try the steam cleaning method.

For $30 its seems like a pretty cheap solution.

Carpet cleaner and a clean dry cloth for most things.

Over the years, I've done lots of car wrecks and gun shot victims in cars. For blood or other bodily fluids, I normally try peroxide first. If that doesn't do it, I move on to Oxyclean.

Do you have a side job as a "cleaner" for the mob? :eek:

Repo company. Pretty well the same thing. :D

PS: There's very few folks that do small-scale Bio HAZ cleanup in my area. And many banks and insurance companies want an IH to sign off on the cleanup. So I suit up, do the work, fill in the VIN and description in a form-letter report, stamp it and turn it in. I can usually do it in the evening after my day job too. It's very interesting and pays great considering it usually only takes me a couple of hours per car as long as a shot gun wasn't used. I've seen some wild stuff over the years. :O

When you are in the yard and the car has that "biohazard" sticker on it, did they actually clean it first or do I just have to avoid touching anything? First time I saw them I thought it was cool, I mean the band is from the neighborhood. Now I just try to avoid them unless is something I absolutely need.
