Cleaning Stains on Headliner and Upholstery

Hello,
I have a 2007 V that was the family car for 3 years. In that time the kids did a number on the headliner and upholstery in the back. Since the car is now my daily driver I looked around for a miracle fix for the many stains in the car. Alas! I think I found it.


Scotch Guard Oxy. I bought it at Wal Mart for about $7.00 dollars.


Here is a good example of the damage to the headliner. This is chocolate milk and other liquids. I took the Scotch Guard and soaked the area. As soon as the cleaner landed on the surface it began working. I simply rubbed with a white terrycloth and the stains were gone.


Here is the after photo of the area. I cleaned my entire headliner and the seats. I will post some photos of the seats at a later time. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking to clean food stains from their upholstery. After applying the cleaner there might be some bleach aroma, but it goes away as soon as the surface dries completely.

Awesome! Careful spraying your headliner. If you saturate it to much it could start to sag. Well that's what happened in older cars. Another good trick is baby wipes. They clean headliners and seats pretty good in a pinch.

Baby wipes? any specific brand? because when we used the Huggies brand or the generic Wal Mart kind after a spill the stain remained. Thank you for the input.

We keep a container in each car in the psgr door. Used generic and big names. But like all stains, for best results get at the stain right away

Also try Krud Kutter. I used it to successfully clean year old stains on my headliner and it worked flawlessly. It also cuts through grease, and sticker residue like butter.

What about Tuff Stuff? I used it in my old car and worked fine.

I didn't try Tuff Stuff since I had already tried the product. I used Tuff Stuff years back trying to clean some stains from a used car and the product didn't have the same results that the Scotch Guard had.

I didn't get the same result that I got on the headliner. when I got the car I sprayed the seats with Scotch Guard stain resistant and I wonder if this is why the seats didn't clean as well as the headliner. The stains are not as obvious as they once were, but you can still see them.
