I've used this stuff extensively for about 4 or 5 years now, and have been really pleased with it. I know quite a few people use it here, and wanted to share what I consider a good deal. I'm in no way or function associated with this company - I just know I've been fortunate enough to get in on some good deals from this board and wanted to pass it on in case anyone uses it.

Basically you buy one of the concentrated quarts (makes a gallon) for 29.25, and you can get up to 2 or 3 more at 14.95. Shipping is included. When I went to buy it through ebay, it didn't ring up properly so I emailed them and they sent me an invoice via paypal at the correct discounted price.

Again, not trying to push this on anyone just wanted to throw it out there.

It cleans as good as any other I've tried. This weekend we added a scrub brush to the cleaning routine (we normally clean after every use with exquisite and towel and then once a month we do a deep scrub) and you can really tell how dirty your vinyl is once you scrub it.

^^Now that's what I really need to do. My 2 going on 3 year old carpet is looking pretty worn. So do you just spray it on, let it sit, then spray it off? Or do you need to scrub too?

I like exquisite a lot too. Thanks for posting up the deal! It's strong enough to clean very well, especially with a brush, but not as harsh as Malco. I still like Malco for the deep cleans though. 303 cleaner for the more frequent cleanings.

Regardless of cleaning product you should always use a wet microfiber to rinse the vinyl after you clean it. You will be amazed how dirty the water will get, especially considering the vinyl is "clean". It will stay cleaner longer as well because there is no detergent residue on the seats.

Or do you need to scrub too?i sprayed the zep all over the carpet and then i pulled out my john deere power washer, fired her up an put the biggest degree nossle on the end ( so you have a less likely chance of ripping the carpet) and power wash away..then i pulled out my shop vac with the wide floor acc. piece and sucked all the water out of the carpet

If you have a mist spray bottle, try using some fabric softner on the wet carpet after you rinse it. It will add a scent (unless you buy unscented) and it will keep the carpet from getting crispy when it dries.

Power wash from the edges to the drain and do it until the water is clean. It will take a few passes on the heavy traffic areas. Don't forget to pull the filter on the wet/dry vac. Unless you like soggy, smelly filters that fall apart.

Just a normal bathroom type scrub brush with the hard but flexible plastic bristles?

You compared this vinyl cleaner to Boat Bling's "Vinyl Sauce"??? Been using that for a while, but have some stubborn little yellow spots that wont seem to come out???

I've tried Boat Bling and Babe's. They didn't do anything for me that this one didn't do, so I didn't feel the need to pay for them.

For those yellow spots I've found the best solution is just to leave the cushion in the sun. Seems that is the only thing that will take them out.

I use one of these too with Malco cleaner in the spring for the deep clean. Makes the white seats look actually bright white. You don't realize how dirty things really are till you have clean seats. WARNING: don't just do one spot or you'll end up cleaning your whole interior :)

Back when I had my Supra, I used a little diluted tide in a spray bottle after getting the carpet wet. Scrubbed it, then power wash. Followed with diluted Downey in spray bottle, let sit then vacuum it up with wet/dry vac. Carpet looked much better!
