    cause Ive read for years about how great it works.

    first off, thank GOD they were carpets from the jeep, and I could take em out and lay em in the driveway first...

    second, I agree... it works really well for cleaning.... I mixed a cup of woolite with about 1/3 a bucket of water, and went at it with a nylon scrub brush. worked great...

    right up to the point where I started to rinse them out... took me an hour to rinse just the one little flat piece that goes on the floor in the back. I decided to just rent a steam cleaner to do the rest. fuck this :o

    I think you might have been using too much woolite perhaps?

    I put the mixture suggested in these forums (something like 6 parts water and 1 part woolite) in a squirt bottle and applied it directly to stains. Then I used a scrub brush to work it til the stain lifted. Finally I dried it with hand towel. Woolite has a very light smell, so even though once I finished the inside did smell cleaner, it wasn't over whelming (like using a real detergent would have been). After I finished the inside, I started to do the carpet inserts, but they were 3 years old and pretty tromped, so I just bought new ones.

    Now the inside of my car looks tons better than it did. I think there was only one stain I couldn't lift all the way.

    yeah. probably too much woolite...

    it sure as hell did a good job of cleaning them though.

    I left them in the driveway, and it rained... theres a puddle of suds at the bottom of the driveway now from the rainstorm :rofl:

    I agree you probably used too much Woolite. I also agree that it works best applying it via a spray bottle. BTW, it works on all interior surfaces. :)
