Default 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.

Cool Re: How to clean my headliner? I'm

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.

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

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,
