    I don't really know what it is, it kind of looks like rocks and its all over the carpeting in my truck. Whenever I vacuum the interior, none of it comes out, some of them will move around if I scrape hard enough with the vacuum head, but it just seems to be tangled up in the carpet. How do I get this stuff out?

    As I assume you're in a winter climate that uses salt for de-icing, it's probably crystallized bits of salt. Your best bet is to pick up some upholstery cleaner, scrub the carpet with that, and then vacuum again. My personal pick for doing jobs like that by hand is Turtle Wax Power OUT! Oxy Upholstery Cleaner.

    That said, however, a pic would be helpful to determine if that really is your issue or not.

    Try a carpet/uphostery brush + vacuum.

    What kind of car is that? Pretty shitty quality carpet. Like posted above, brush and vacuum should loosen it up enough to remove.

    seems like just pebbles, which are always sooooo hard to get em all out. like the dirt that comes out of the floormats.....no matter how many times you shake them out/vacuum them/shampoo them the dirt always keeps coming out :mad:
