Default carpet cleaning, restoring advice?

I bought a carpet off ebay and the guy ripped me off big time, im convinced its still salvageable so i went out and bought some stuff from walmart, gona do oxy clean carpet stain lifter with the squirt bottle across the carpet, blot out, wet vac it out, then get the rough stains out with the blue magic, then use the automotive adhesive to reglue the pad back down, im convinced it should work. I have brand new 110 dollar floor mats from honda im gona use the scotch guard on before i put them in use.








the light makes it look better then it really is but im convinced this should work, but if anyone has any tips or threads where this has been done before, please let me know, cus this is my first go at it.

damn how much you spent on the carpet and cleaning items?

I haven't done it myself but its worth a try. Let us know how it turns out because I want to clean out mines as well. Good luck on it.

its a walmart special, probably about 20 bucks, the scotch guard is for the new mats i bought from honda, the oxy clean is concentrate for 4 bucks, 1 spoonful for every 16 oz of water, the blue magic is for the heavier spots if they dont lift with the oxy clean, and the adhesive will reglue the mat hopefully since the idiot folded the carpet up like a basketball when he shipped it to me.

You could try taking it to a car wash and hitting it with the pressure washer. I've seen that work well.

Or rent a carpet steamer.

well i figured out why it didnt work as well as i thought it would, that god damnit billy mays ripped me off, the oxy clean never dissolved in the water int he machine, it all just sank to the bottom of the tank and layed there in its crystal powder form. Then when i dumped the old tank out it all came out in a sandy mixture.

any product that says oxy clean is some junk.. specially the Turtle oxy clean that's at auto zone. I cleaned my mats w/ it and nothing..so I took some liquid tide and and drizzled it on my mats and soaked w/ water then rubbed w/ a stiff brush. Came out really clean.

I would suggest using some kind of laundry detergent.

I used to work at a car wash and could perform magic on carpet shampoo's, if Jesus himself worked at the car wash, I'm convinced he is the only one that could lift stains better than I could, hahaha. Man, hope that isn't too blasphemous, Lord, I apologize. But seriously, you're well off since its out of the car so you can get it really wet. Throw some thick carpet shampoo on it, scrub the **** out of it, spray it with water for an extended period of time, wet vac it, check for stubborn stains, hit those up with some heavy duty stain remover (that won't bleach), let it sit, shampoo again, scrub, spray, wet vac, then you should be good, if not, repeat.

Good luck, that carpet doesn't look too bad, honestly. Despite the holes and pulled up plastic foot guard.

well all things considering, its better then the carpet the car came with, this is what i pulled out when i first bought the car...



apparently the chick that owned it prior got into the accident with 15 cups of dunkin donuts mocha latte coffees, there was no saving that, not to mention the stench it had

Try using Armor All Carpet and Upholstery cleaner. I have used it to clean various stains out of tan cloth before and it worked wonders. Just spray it on, let the foam set, then hose it off (since you the carpet out of the car).

I have tried several other store bought brands (Blue Coral, Oxy Clean, STP, etc) and this one seems to do the best job.

well my mom brought home some stuff called crystal spotter from her cleaning company, and it seems to have worked quite well on the area i tested it on, i just sprayed down some larger sections of the carpet that have black dirt and grime in them still as well as a stain, gona see if it can lift those up as well

the oxiclean that mays pushed works very well. i've been using it for over 10 years as a laundry booster and i love it.

in this application, i'd say you should dissolve it first in a jug of HOT water, stir it until it dissolves and then immediately pour it in whatever you are going to use at that moment (ie that vacuum you showed), but realize it will pressurize a sealed container so the solution can't be stored in such for any length of time.

your best bet is to use a quality all purpose cleaner (like optimum power clean or meguiars APC) or a heavy traffic solution. i use zep heavy traffic in a spray bottle and pre-treat the entire carpet. i let them soak, and then i extract with either a real deal hot extractor, or with a bissel green machine, or, i'll follow up with hot water spray and extract with a wet/dry vac. depends on where i am and what i have.

keep in mind there is a detailing subforum on honda-tech toward the bottom. there has been a thread or two about this exact thing and people have had great success with a few methods.

Default new jersey carpet cleaning

well, if you have something to say about that hero honda is giving his hands into the buisness of cleaning devices then it's a good choice of them. They really got talent.
