Cleaning Headliner/Seats

How? I got ALOT of mud splattered on the inside of my truck from the rear tires of a Dodge Ram. Anyways, its everywhere. Whats the most efficient way to get it all out? Wait till it dries and vacuum it? Get it with a wet sponge? I have no clue.

Thank you!

If you take off all the interior trim around the headliner (and dome light), it will come off. I would think it'd be much easier to clean outside the truck.. Worst comes to worst, you can always recover it pretty cheaply. Damn those dodges...

Then just vacuum it up? Thats what I was thinking, but I dont want to smear it/rub it in, y'know? I'll try everything tommorow, I guess. Its just gonna be a pain in the *** getting it all out!

When the mud is dry, use the brush to loosen it up, then vacuum, then use the Resolve (instructions are on the can).

if you get your interior dirty alot i would recommend get a portable steam cleaner. i have tried alot of cleaners you spray one let sit a min scrub then vac and some worked ok some made it worse. but a steam cleaner has never failed me.

something like this works perfect. they are a little pricey but well worth the aggravation saved
