As for the headliner....I really want to get my stains out, but I'm just a bit nervous about it. Any tips Draconis?

It was really easy with the stuff that I used, and even with my 6 or 7 cigarette burns up there, didn't tear those holes any larger or anything.  Note that I did not use the included brush applicator that came on the can of Turtle Wax Interior Carpet Cleaner, I broke that off of the cap and sprayed the headliner, then rubbed down (lightly scrubbed) the area with a small microfiber pad (small round sponge covered in microfiber cloth that was like $4 @ Walmart).  I have a feeling that the brush applicator would tear the headliner, as the bristles are plastic, but any sponge or soft cloth should work.  Spray it on, rub it in, and run a vacuum across it once it's dry (honestly, you could probably skip that part, didn't seem to do much on the headliner, though is necessary for carpet), and you're done!  One application was all it took to get the water stains out, I next time I clean it I'm gonna re-apply and scrub some smaller areas that still show light stains (which used to be much worse), but all in all it does a real good job.

Draconis, take time to post a unique comment on the procedures you used and the quality of the product with your overall score in the product review section.

I'll have to do that when I get a chance...  you mean I have to actually organize my thoughts so people can understand me? ^_^ :mellow:

I had to detail my Silverado and I used "Spot Shot" on my headliner and carpet. It worked wonders. It got out all of the old spots that the detailer could not get out. Plus it's only $1 at Dollar Tree.

Well I know someone who told me that glass cleaner not windex but the foamy stuff in an aerosol can works, all your suppost to do is spray it on the stain let it sit for a couple minutes and dab it with a paper towel I don't know if it works.

I'll have to try the Spot Shot on mine, I picked up a small carpet cleaner I use on the floor boards, with a little rug cleaner. That seems to really work for the road salt that gets tracked in drring the winter time

I tried to fin the Spot Shot product at my local Dollar Tree, but think they replaced the product with high traffic carpet cleaner. It seemed to work great  with a little help from a soft bristle hand brush, or a tooth bush might work well too, depending of the size of the stain. I have yet to try the other products mentioned in this forum. I'll write back as soon as I try some others as they may work better, or the same as the product I tried.
