The best thing to use to get stains out of the upholestry and the floor board carpets is Procyon best carpet cleaner there is and it leaves no sudsy residue that always attracts more dirt. Check your grocery stores for this product. Used it on my camry and got lots of dirt and several stains out with it.

dakid I do Paintless Dent Removal for a living and there's a scuff in almost every dent I fix...

I use Maguire's Diamond Cut (you can get other compounds that are similar), it's great for small area's.... If you buff you're whole car or a large area (i.e. hood) then it will leave swirl marks, because it cut's the clear coat good... but for getting out smalls scuff's and scratchs' nothing beats it!

I just purchased an 07 Camry that has a red mystery stain on the carpet. This stain is obviously set in and I need help getting it out, or possible considering coloring the carpet. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I actually love detailing cars. My friends and family think im weird because I'm always trying to detail their cars (for free ofcourse) . I've thought about making some money on the side with it , hard work though .

I'm just curious because I've been detailing quite a few cars on the side recently. It pays good money and I love to detail cars almost as I like to drive them. Just hoping to share some tips and tricks and ideas about different products to use.

Bissell makes a carpet cleaning/shampooer that is called the Little Green Machine (sold at Wal-Mart, Target, etc.) for about $80. IT WORKS MIRACLES!!! Also, in response to the main question on the board, I love detailing. I tend to refer to it as a hobby, but the wife thinks I'm crazy. To detail my H2, it takes an entire 10-11 hr day.
