    Me again!
    Now the outside of the MH is sparkling and the inside too, I would like to clean the headlining. Its not badly marked, just some discolouration - light staining here and there. There are no leaks but I think the light staining comes from perhaps cooking and all that goes on in there :RollEyes:

    Has anyone any recommendations for cleaning the headlining - its a sort of biege hessian type and looks really smart, but I just can't take my eyes off the couple of stains on it. One of those things, you see it and then you can't see anything but it then.

    As always, any recommendations greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Trikeman. :Wink:

    No
    A proper steam cleaner, One with a brush end and only steam comes out, would be done like new in no time.

    If you get some interior cleaner fluid (such as autoglym interior cleaner) you can use this. Spray on, and wipe with a HOT cloth - it will come up straight away, and avoids risk of shrinking.

    No reason why a multi surface wouldn't do the same - make sure the cloth is hot though as it opens the fibres and helps draw the dirt to the cloth.

    No, no - brilliant suggestions and reommendations, thanks. Not too sure what I did wrong here but did press the 'Thanks' button for all the replies - they are very useful and will be having a bash ASAP.

    Please put it down to me and my 'numpty' computer skills :cry:

    Many Thanks,

    Trikeman. :Wink:
