    here is a tip for people who want to get stains out of carpets/mats/seats/headlining etc etc
    what i have done is buy 1l of rug doctor carpet cleaner solution then mix it with 60 litres of water so you get 60 litres of it for around £12 then i bought a 50p spray bottle and i put it in there, then to clean stains i spray it lightly over the affected area then leave for 30 secs then use a soft brush and rub at the stain lightly for 10 seconds or so then lift the stain out with a slightly damp cloth.
    i have used this on many occasions and for years and it gets out every stain and all dirt everytime, try it you will be amazed.

    That's exactly what I do...

    However I rent the RugDoctor Machine and use the hand tool attachment. The results are amazing.

    heres a tip dicovered while cleaning up jukebox glass's to get rid of "pub nicotine" spray it on and the brown crap RUNS off....

    to clean spots off carpets use Mr Muscle window cleaner it must be the green one...spray it on leave for about a minute and rub out the dirty mark
    this stuff works on EVERYTHING ...try it you wont believe it or use anything else, no hard chemicals

    i personalally have used this on carpets, vinyl, leather, plastics, trim.....if you have some concerns use it on a non valuable item.....lifts off the dirt and even leaves a little bit of a shine

    the attatchment is good but i prefer to do it manually because the attatchment only sucks and doesnt brush at the stain like the main machine or like i can do manually and is difficult to get into tight areas unlike a hand brush and damp cloth.
    although the hand attatchment is still good, i own a blue rug doctor.
