My headliner is filthy, I need to clean it. What methods do you guys use? What cleaners? I tried cleaning it with water and it left a watermark after it dried. Any suggestions?

I've used Resolve Carpet cleaner and a moist rag on mine. It works pretty darn good!

I use diluted laundry detergent (Tide) and a tooth brush, then 'rinse' with warm water and the toothbrush. It left a water mark for a couple days, then cleared out completely.

Haven't had to clean my headliner yet but on my old car I used ArmorAll's Upholestry cleaner and it worked great, left a water mark for a couple of hours but then went away. Took out mascara from my sister (idk how the hell she got it up there) and it also took off handprints from my ex...don't ask LOL. It worked great on cleaning up gunked up crap in my carpet too.

Steam cleaning is always nice to use on fabrics :) It will leave a water mark like you said, but once it dries out it'll be gone :)

How the hell do you get your headliner dirty?

My car's a 2004 and the headliner's pretty much spotless.

lol, from my experience it isn't me but other ppl in my car who are careless. The worst kinda passengers are the ones who are careless.

First week I had my car I took my little cousins to my other cousins quince and the 9 yr old dropped chocolate cupcakes all over the car and got glitter from her dress all over the back seat...all while my car was off and still parked :banghead: She hasn't been in it since and this is about 5 months later haha

That's the thing... I'm not putting my TSX in any situation that would expose it to young kids with food riding in it. Hell, I don't let grown folk eat or drink in my car, lol.

damn mechanics.

I used green works cleaner on it, and it worked perfectly.

If I where to use it I would use carpet cleaner. Even use a shampooer that has the attachments so you can scrub and suck out the water. If you just clean it you will get water marks like you mentioned. Or you can use a shop vac to suck the water out.
