so I pulled the big piece o' carpet out of my 1990 loyale to look at some wiring stuff and thought this would be a good time to blast the smithereenies out of it with some cleaner. Anyone figgered out a good way to do this? I was thinking about taking it to the power wash place as I think they have a carpet cleaner setting for the sprayer. I'd really like to get it good while it's out...I swear the car must've been occupied by a family of smoking, junk food-eating rats at one point. Ideas?

I have had pretty good results with foaming carpet cleaner spray and then pressure washing it at the car wash before. Just be careful not to tear the grommets out of the carpet and really let it dry thoroughly before installing it again.

I had a dealer tell me one time that he used carb cleaner on seats to clean them up... I have no clue if it works.. maybe try it on a junk carpet before you do it..

I used a little green clean machine to do the carpet in my car..
Took a lil bit of time, but I got the carpet to look like it did when it was brand new..
