    I was amazed at the results. This was with a carpet extractor as well.

    Your results are stunning. That's a very dramatic change, no doubt! Do you credit the APC more than the extractor capability?

    What kind of carpet extractor do you use, something inexpensive, or a high end professional grade machine? I desire an extractor for home use on my 7 vehicles and for use when I do other friends and families cars.
    Doing the best I can with what I've got.

    Thanks. I was blown away by the results I achieved and the customer was even more so! I'd say both are needed and play different roles in achieving this. I have not shampooed with out an extractor in a long time. My process for shampooing interiors is; spray carpets and upholstery with apc, use a lake county yellow foam cutting pad attached to air drill to scrub fabric and carpet, then extract out dirt with extractor that has a rinse aid in its solution tank. I find apc breaks up the dirt, scrubbing breaks it up even more and brings it to the surface, then the extractor ***** it all out while neutralizing the alkaline cleaner. I wouldn't say my extractor is heaps high end but wouldn't say its the bottom either. I'm a mobile detailer so needed something which I could easily transport. You have more options as far as extractors go then me in the USA. In Australia we are a bit more limited. Mine cost about $600 and that was with a trade account, but I'm happy with it.

    That's a nice Camaro you have there. I saw one the other day over here, such a nice car

    I'm looking at this through my phone and at 1st I wondered if I was missing the before photo... After clicking on the pic the 3rd time I realized it was a 50/50 shot! Lol.

    Wow! That's awesome :thumbsup
    I wasn't expecting a 50/50 shot quite like that. Lol. Nice.

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Apc is the best solution I have ran into. The is the only interior cleaner I use most of the time besides Meguiars super degreaser or folex.I love the price and the dilution ratio as well. However, there is some skeptics that argue that is too strong and not pH balance for leather,that is all baloney. Keep up the good work. Do you have a pump sprayer?

    Wow, quite a difference there. I too would love to add a carpet extractor to my home but can't justify the expense for a few times I truly would need one. Although I have cleaned some "friends and families" cars and an extractor would be nice.

    Have you tried the Bissell carpet extractor for under $100. The Bissell is not bad for a do it yourself.

    Massive difference from the "before" side to the "after"! This is a very good indicator of why D101 has been so popular for so many years among detailers for interior work.

    I don't anymore as it broke, been using just a trigger sprayer but am looking into a Tornador foaming gun as I do carry an air compressor with me.
