First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Normal cleaning

General surface soiling of the upholstery and fabric trim can be cleaned with a commercially available foam cleaner.

If upholstery and fabric trims are generally heavily soiled, take the vehicle to a specialist cleaning company.

Stain removal

When removing stains, it may be necessary to clean a large surface and not just the stain itself. Especially if the surface is generally worn. The cleaned area could otherwise be lighter than the surrounding area.

Type of stain Cleaning
Water-based stains, e.g. coffee or fruit juice. – Use a sponge to apply a mild detergent solution.
– Dry with an absorbent, dry cloth.
Stubborn stains, for example chocolate, make-up. – Apply some detergent pastea) directly to the stain and rub the paste in gently.
– Use a cloth or sponge soaked in clear water to remove any detergent residue.
– Dry with an absorbent, dry cloth.
Oily stains, e.g. oil, lipstick. – Apply natural soap or detergent pastea) and rub it in gently.
– Remove dissolved grease or dye with an absorbent material.
– Finally, clean with clear water. Do not soak the upholstery.

NOTICE

Brushes should be used on carpeting and mats only! Other surfaces could be damaged by brushes.

NOTICE

Do not use steam cleaners as the steam pushes the soiling into the fabric and sets it.

NOTICE

a) Ox gall soap can be used as a detergent paste.
