I hear soap and water is all you need.

I personally use a Bissell green machine

Powerwash them. That'll work the best!

Little Green Machine from Bissel. Cost about 75 bucks and I clean the carpet about 4-6 times a year. Can steam it in about 20 minutes and does a great job.

Another little green user.

It's not only a boat tool either. Works great in the house as well.

I was just going to look around for some similar suggestions, since we have a new baby doing her thing staining up the carpet, and I wanted to use that as an excuse to get something to do the boat carpet too. I'll give the little green a shot, thanks guys.

I think I saw in another thread there was some hesitation about using a steam cleaner due to the rubber backing on the carpet? Have you guys seen any issues? I'd guess not if you are recommending it.

Nevermind looks like it's not a steamer, just took that from the post above.

I've had no issues at all with it and I too use it around the house as well. Does a great job on couches.

Doesn't that blow crud, sand, crumbs, whatever all over everything else in the boat?? I've read a few different people on the forums doing it, I'm just not that anxious to spend twice as long afterwards dealing with the collateral damage and mess from it.

I agree. The little green machine works real good. Tornado got mine so I got to get another one soon. Also use Folex (I think) from Home Depot. Excellent spot remover
