Scottwax1 In the past few weeks I have done some cars of mothers of infants. These cars were filthy and the only reason these people paid for detailing was to get the milk stains, and hopefully the smells out. I scrubbed and scubbed but never could get the smell fully out. Any suggestions?

Have you tried either of our odor eliminators?

You might try Febreeze.

Before you do that make sure that your clients aren't allergic to Febreeze. I know it sounds strange, but I detailed my brothers car a while ago and sprayed some febreeze. Later that night one of his friends had an allergic reaction and it wasn't pretty. :shocked1

With 28 Years Detailing Exp. Under My Belt I Am Going To Give You My Greatest Trick For Stains In Cloth Seats.

1st Put Away All Liquids And Sprays When You Rewet A Stain You Push It Back Into The Cloth.

2nd You Need Compressed Air And A Brass Wire Brush, The Bigger The Stain The Bigger The Brush. I Like A 1" X 3"

3rd Pratic On An Old Seat Untill You Get The Feel By Brushing In The Same Direction Not Circles.as You Brush Start With Light Preasure And Increase If Needed. As You Brush Use The Air To Blast Away The Dust From The Stain Than Vacum.

Be Careful And You Wiil Be Amazed At The Results And The Time You Will Save.


Please Let Me Know How You Make Out

Have you used an extractor / hot water extractor?

Is this safe on any fabric or material? You didn't say in your post?

We're worried that some people may read your advice and and try it out on their particular interior only to find out the brass wire changed the look of whatever their fabric or material is made out of?

We don't want someone ruining their interior and then citing the MOL forum as the place they obtained the information?

Does that make sense? So we need you to verify this recommendation of yours is safe on all fabrics and materials or be more specific on which fabrics and materials it is safe on.

Thanks...

Meguiar's Odor Eliminator works great, although some people don't like the smell (I don't find it that bad). I don't understand the chemistry, but somehow it actually captures/surrounds the odor molecules. Many other products only perfume the air so the bad smell comes back. With the Odor Eliminator, the stank doesn't return (unless more milk's spilled!)

Good luck.
