    Honey,I Steamed Cleaned my Car!

    I hired a steam cleaner for 4 hours from Woolworths for $32 + $7 for the Upholstery cleaning solution.You just need 2 forms of ID,no deposit.

    Easy as to use,it took me 2 hrs to do the whole car,doing a mickey mouse job.

    2 Front seats
    Rear seat
    4 Mats
    Floor carpet

    I ended up with 4 big bucket full of black water

    It's amazing the amount of slime that accumulates over the years

    Anyways time!

    The original plan was to split the cost with my mate and do 2 cars,but he got lazy.

    $40 is way worth it cause I did a real shmick job,no joe blow is gonna do half the job I done,money very well spent.

    I had plans to do my pillow and a rug but the car gets priority hehehe

    You could do 2 cars and have it back in 4 hrs if ya get stuck in,no probs.

    make sure the carpet and the upholstery dry properly.. it may smell nice n fresh for now, but it could end up with foul smell from the semi wet carpet n upholstery.

    You mix say 100 ml of the cleaning solution with 8 litres of HOT water.

    Pour that into the bottom part/bucket of the steam cleaner.When you press the trigger it squirts out the solution and vacumns hard at the same time,sucking all that crap up and into the top collector/bucket of the steam cleaner.

    Here's the DIY

    Dude people pay that much for a exterior wash and a minor interior detail.

    IMO Cleaning your carpets to THIS level is worth the 20-50 bucks you will spend + the Beer.

    Remembering once you steam clean the carpets it smells a shizzle load better
