So, I'm sitting in my car between classes this week and I look up and notice how grimy the thing is! I can't believe it! Okay, so I've never washed it... ever, and I don't spend a lot of time looking at the ceiling... but this is embarrassing!

My ceiling's a tan cloth. Has anyone cleaned theirs by themselves? If so, what did you use? I don't even want to risk a spot test since there isn't really any hidden area's. How long did it take you?

Really? What kind of degreaser? That seems kinda harsh, was it the only thing that worked or how did you come about using that?

didn't I help you with this last november?????

anyway...get the stuff I told you about at the dealership....its not expensive and it's made for your car.....

just don't go under your bathroom sink looking for cleaning solvents to scrub out your headliner...

What you can use is Teflon Dash wipes for the dash and leatherette stuff. But get your stuff for the cloth and rug areas from the BMW dealership...it smells great as well.

Haha, ya but you told me about that cleaning thing the dealership does... I'd planned on doing that... but could never actually come to seperating myself from that much money when I COULD technically clean it myself... Ya, I'm cheap, I know...

Great! I didn't know I could go to them for the products, thanks!

Don't you lot have accessory shops over there?

I tend to use either Autoglym interior shampoo....a really excellent trim cleaner, or anything similar if I am feeling cheap! :P

Just spray it on, leave it a few, then wipe of gently with a damp cloth, making sure you keep the cloth clean....it works a treat.

Best regards David

BTW if you have a particulary nasty stain on your trim you should spray the cleaner AROUND the stain not directly onto it, you need to wet the trim around the stain and work inwards, that way your not left with an unsightly ring where the stain was after its dried. Not speaking from personal experience of nasty stains of course!

best regards David
