Wear gloves to protect your hands and an apron to avoid any damage to your attire, you can also wear old clothes so that your work is done comfortably.
Fill a bucket of water or you can use a pipe to pour water. The temperature of the water should be moderate and not very hot because certain chemicals react in high temperatures.
Add the required amount of shampoo in the bucket. The ratio of the water and the shampoo will be according to the directions mentioned on the shampoo bottle.
Take out all the rugs and carpets from your car and vacuum them with a dry vacuum cleaner. Make sure that all dirt has been removed.
Then vacuum those mats and carpets which are non removable.
Pour a required amount of water on your carpet so that it gets moist, then with help of a stiff tire brush start scrubbing the entire area, until the white foam gets brown and the stains are nowhere to be seen.
The procedure mentioned above is a common way to wash your carpets, but to avoid any mishap or damage you should always follow the correct directions written on your chemical bottle.
After scrubbing your carpets rinse them properly to eliminate the soapy water and check if you have missed any stains or spot.
Hang the wet pieces of carpet on a wire, but the position should be vertical. The other method to extract moistness and foam from the carpet is by using a wet dry vacuum cleaner, which sucks the water out very easily.
After cleaning the removable pieces in the same manner you have to clean the side portions of your seat.
Shampooing your car carpet is a very easy if you choose a perfect product and patiently follow the directions given in this guide.
