    Also try cleaning the whole of your interior of your car by renting the RugDoctor Machine. I've done every car I've bought with it and it leaves them like factory once done. -Removes everything, smells, stains, -it also leaves the car smelling like factory!

    thanks in advance
    Hi
    I valet ( Detail ) cars in my spare time & the dirty smell of smoke is terrible, ( I used to be a smoker) it's not too bad if the car has leather seats as they can be wiped but you need to get the car professionally valeted ( Detailed) when done & depending on the weather in your Country, leave the doors / windows down & add a sweet smelling fluid INTO THE CARPET FIBER

    Good Luck.

    I always wondered whether a rugdoctor or vax etc would mess up the electrics in the seats as you are pressuring water into them?

    It doesn't matter on the older cars, but in the newer ones there are all sorts of wiring and electricals in them?

    Hi there,

    You can try the following website...

    http://www.rugdoctor.co.uk/

    They have a store locator where you can rent them, -just type in your postcode. -You will need to produce I.D when renting, as it's a very expensive piece of kit -as you've found out!.

    There products are simply amazing. -The best I've ever used in cleaning chemicals in my lifetime, -no jokes! Follow there exact instructions on the bottle of their products, (for a car interior/around the home use their upholstory shampoo and wow)!

    -There still hasn't been a stain yet which I haven't been able to remove!!

    The results are just like factory!

    -As long as you don't go near them in the first place your fine!

    I use it for the seats (if fabric) carpets, headlining -what I normally do here is cover the whole interior with a clean dust sheet, -to avoid drips on centre console, electrics, etc. While using the machine.
