I was wondering if there were any members who clean their interior themselves? I would like to shampoo the interior but am not sure how to approach it. I was looking at portable spot shampooers such as this Minuteman Gotcha! (http://www.minutemanintl.com/products/c ... are/gotcha) that I use at work to wash furniture but it is about $1200 depending on where it is purchased. Is there a similar shampoo unit for around $100? I know that the Bissel SPOTbot has a vacuum hose with a sprayer that would work similar but it would be a waste as the main unit is meant to be used in the house on floor stains.

I also watched a video of a guy using Resolve to spray down the interior, then scrubbing with a wet cloth and rinsing in a bucket, then picking up excess water with a wet/dry vac.

edit: I just found the Bissel SPOTclean, which is the bot without the floor scrubber http://www.bissell.com/spotclean/.

When im doing my carpets, ill take a bucket of hot water with a little tide in it, and a bottle of all purpose cleaner with a couple brushes. first i spray the cleaner, then ad a little of the soapy water with a brush and scrub for a few minutes, then blot dry with a towel and then suck up what i can with a wet/dry vac, then ill leave the windows cracked for a few hrs.. Using a actual shampooer like you mentioned would make it alot easier, but im cheap :) Results still turn out good tho.

I just bought the Bissell Little Green Proheat on Amazon for $100 shipped after $20 mail in rebate. I would go for that before the Spotclean as it has better reviews. They basically replaced the Little Green with the Spotclean, but it just doesn't seem like the Spotclean is as good as what it replaced.

As for whether or not it works...

Thank you for the input but I just ordered the Bissell Spotclean 5207a from amazon for $89.99 new, no tax either; I also have a limited time of Prime so it was free 2 day shipping also, can't complain about that, haha. Was thinking about the Little Green but something turned me away, although results and reviews are good. Read some reviews off of numerous sites and watched it in action and looked really decent. Can't wait to shampoo the Firebird and Bonneville.

I use cold distilled water in a mister - soak it if needed, use clean microfiber towels to dry. Never had a stain or grime fail to come out, including a greasy, grimy wrecker drivers glove print. - BC
