carpet cleaners don't do it justice, as it's so thin and if you try to rub its separates the fabric. the foams don't work as they also need to be 'rubbed'. what I have is air contaminate build up in the back half of the headliner, from having the windows cracked while driving. it looks pretty gross but you only notice it when you look up. any suggestions anyone? It's at least $150 for a reupholstery (cuz of sunroof) and thats not exactly the road I'd like to travel just yet.

Try some oxyclean or a foaming carpet cleaner. The oxyclean will most likely need some scrubbing. This is a very good one that doesnt require much scrubbing though. http://www.meguiars.com/?boat-rv-spe...lstery-Cleaner

Oh definetly. Thats why I suggest a foaming cleaner. A steam cleaner would do the best job, but that fabric would fall right off. The foaming cleaner will typically be a wipe on, let sit, wipe off type. Thats probably your best bet.

Here's Another Trick To It, Not Many People Know About This. Spary The Headliner, But You Don't Need To Spray A Big Section Of It, Start Little By Little. Now If You Have A Air Compressor Avaliable With A Nosal Piece Start Sparying The Headliner Where The Foam Is Located Before It Starts To Dry. I Would Do This Many Times To Keep The Headliner Looking New. With That Compress Air Going Thru The Fabric, It Will Push Out The Dirt. While Sparying The Air You Don't Want To Keep In One Place, Kind Of Spary Around At About A Foot-to-6"' Away From It.

We have a new Carpet & Upholsery Cleaner (part # D10219) in a aerosol form you should try. That fact it comes in a aerosol form, when you spray it wont drip down. It also cleans really well and easy for tougher stains I'd recommend using an Interior Brush and the product to remove the stains easier.

I just cleaned a few stains out of my headliner. I used this carpet stain remover in a read bottle and sponge with brissles around it on the top. It has oxyclean action or something in it as well. I just pushed the soaked spong up against it and lightly scrubed for three to five seconds, stains were gone. The sponge and light brisles did not harm the head liner at all.
