    A real horror show. On ugly days, my brother has been having me do interior details for his employees (he has a computer repair/service business). This 2000 Nissan Quest belongs to one of his techs. This is about as bad as it gets.

    Two boxes for stuff he wanted and two 13 gallon trash bags for the garbage later...

    Then 45 minutes of vacuuming...

    A few hours with BioKleen Traffic Lane Cleaner and my PC with a carpet brush attachment, and Woolite/water on the vinyl-the middle section still would not come very clean. :sad2:

    BioKleen TLC and PC/brush on the mats.

    Obviously, redying the carpet would be the best option but he only got the van cleaned because my brother was paying for it.

    Man that thing was just nasty. Great turnaround on the carpet. That brush attachment makes a big difference. I use the brushes with my Cyclo.

    What were the red stains? Could you tell? I use a product called Red Out and it works really well. Even if it doesn't take out the red all of the way it will still leave them a light yellow, which looks so much better. Most of the time I can get red completely out.

    Great work~!

    I thought you were going to be cleaning barf! I was going to come in and say, "Hey, I know how to do that!"

    I had to clean my car after some dipshit decided to puke in it (me) after getting driven home from the bar. I used some Meguiars/Resolve carpet cleaner and a liberal ammount of Meguiars Odor Out... Worked like a charm.

    FUCK THAT. That is an instant extra $50 charge for excessive filth.

    I sure hope you billed that out right. I also throw in an extra $7 fee for "environmental disposal" which means I separate the recyclable from non-recyclable

    I don't think i could handle being a detailer. I love cleaning the outside of cars, insides are nasty.

    My wife is a clean freak in our house. Her mother too.

    They can both make a car look like it has been lived in for a month by a family of 7 refugees in about 3 days.

    I priced it so I made about $30 an hour. Like I said, if it wasn't for my brother, I probably wouldn't even have done the job. But since my brother also does my website, any printing (like gift certificates,etc) and was instrumental in me getting a good start in my business, I let this one slide.
