MoroCurtis Hello. Very old topic, but I'll ask for it. How the f* do these napkins called? Everywhere they write about these super clean ultra super cool mega napkins for upholstery, but what and how and where is not clear!?

Spacerunner Hire a Rug Doctor from your local dry cleaner. Johnsons do them and so do B & Q.

Don't forget to use Scotchguard or fabric protector afterwards. The retailers who hire Rug Doctors will also be able to sell you the fabric protector.

rosalan Careful what cleaners you do try. Without following the instructions where they say 'Try an inconspicuous area first' I went for the most prominant. It cleaned it but also took some of the colour, which did not show until it dried.
It is very annoying, but I cannot remember which cleaner I used
Will try the steam cleaner which sounds a good idea.

aldra Don't know about the hand held steamer, but I use my steam cleaner-or did to clean the van seats and carpet. Doesn't leave them wet, just damp
so choose a day when windows can be left open for quick dry
(I don't have a security problem so would need to take that into consideration)
They dry anyway but just take a little longer if van closed up and weather favourable

Even the carpet has plastic carpet protector on it.

Dust sare not settle and woe betide anyne who drops a crumb

julie1 Has anybody used one of these hand held steam cleaners? Are they any good or do they leave upholstery too wet. I was thinking of buying one for the mh.

Yes they do, I used them for years on my leather furniture and on the leather interior of the car
Tried the wipes for leather but find them expensive and fiddly
With 10 grandchildren I need something quick,effective and cheap
Try them out Aldra

keith_c Another vote for the Autosmart Brisk Vif stuff. Our eldest son decided to throw up during the middle of the night whilst in the motorhome last year. He was in the over cab bed at the time. We used about one and a half tins of the it (I've got a friend who is an Autosmart agent) but it sorted it and I guarantee you'd never know it happened now.

Amazing stuff, use it on everything fabric wise and the dirt just lifts away.

DJMotorhomer Hi

Asda (in the £ section) sell a packet (like baby wipes) of upholstery cleaner, and its good. Also use Brisk Vif Auto ( as recommended on here) that is a foam and is also very good got that off Ebay

Hope these help
