Default cleaning stained interior

I have a 2006 Roadtrek with some stains on the padded walls from leaks (since repaired). Anyone have any ideas on how best to clean this. My GF didn't think using a rug vac handheld tool would work very well. Thanks.

I've had good luck with my rug vac in the van, used it on carpet and upholstery (my walls are ok)


I used less soap than I would for the carpet and I used distilled water for the rinse cycles- we have very hard water here which can make cleaned fabrics "crunchy"

I used a spray on upholstery cleaner (Woolrich or Scotchguard, can’t recall). Spray on, gently work into fabric, wait a while, then dab with clean damp cloth. Rinse in clean water and repeat until all cleaner is gone, then dab dry with a towel.

Dab, don’t rub.

Mine had water stains around the A/C. Took a couple of treatments, but came out almost like new.

I had a 05 190P, had a roof leak, and it left a stain. I bought an upholstery shampoo with the soft nylon bristles in the cap. I put it on, let it soak, used paper towels to suck up moisture. Took three times, but it was completely gone.

We have a Bissell carpet cleaner that works great with the handheld attachment.

Try some Tough Stuff upholstery cleaner. It will probably take multiple cleanings depending on the stain. Let dry after cleaning, reassess, repeat as necessary.

Default Water stained interior

We had water stains where our Roadtrek had leaked on interior fabric. I used hydrogen peroxide and like magic it disappeared while I was looking at it. I believe I might have diluted with a little water, not sure. Spray on or use clean rag soaked with the mixture. Good luck! ... on another note... I sprayed peroxide on my hardwood (oak) floors and clean where my dog had wet through her bed and we had missed it for days, it was black! The peroxide cleaned the black!

Default For Headliner Stains

I've had very good success with FOLEX Instant Carpet Stain Remover, sprayed on, then worked lightly with a damp towel. Now if I could just find that leak, my cleaning efforts wouldn't be spoiled next rainy season.
