Best carpet cleaner

Hello to everyone!
I want a "soft" carpet cleaner. I don't have any spots, but the carpet could use some cleaning.

Any suggestions?

An All Purpose Cleaner such as 303 Cleaner & Spot Remover would serve well for this purpose.

I've used Zep carpet cleaner for years. It's always done a good job for me, so I've never really tried anything else.

Should be able to find it OTC. Their general cleaner foams - I usually spray some on the carpets, agitate with a brush, and and use the ShopVac to finish up the job.

If it's just your mats that are dirty, you might want to consider buying new ones. BMW mats aren't great, and don't seem to last long anyway.

I would say 303 Fabric you can try it diluted first if your worried about strength and work your way up to full strength if that doesnt work

Carept Cleaning

Cleaning your carpet and upholstery doesn't just have to be to avoid wear and age. It can also be due to accidents. If you are going to have a party, or if you have just had a party and there are stains all over it from food and drinks then you can call a professional cleaner to come and get it out.

I would get new mats. Turner Motorsport is having a sale on them as well.

I know chemical guys have some pretty cool products for mats.

Also check out Phil at detailers domain he should sell the 303 cleaner.

Autoglym Interior Shampoo... it works on everything, no need to worry about overspray.

I cleaned my whole car with it two weeks ago (from headliner down to the carpeting below the mats), I used about 3/4 of the bottle and many MF towels, car looks as good as new.

One of the best ways to clean your carpet is vacuum cleaning. But you must be careful while working with carpet fiber as there is risk of getting stuck in vacuum cleaner. Make sure to clean your carpets once in week; as it is necessary to clean your carpet in regular intervals to keep it clean, to get a new look and most importantly to get rid of various germs.

I highly recommend the 303 Cleaner & Spot Remover or the concentrated 303 Fabric & Vinyl Cleaner (same active ingredients). I use it on carpets, fabrics, etc. plus I use this on my dashboard, doors, console, etc.
