Your Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner FAQs Answered

Do you have a question about Simoniz Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner? Or are you looking for advice on how best to clean your car’s interior?

Simoniz Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner is an incredible tool for cleaning and restoring fabric surfaces inside your car. Below, you’ll find helpful advice and FAQs on our specialist upholstery cleaner, so you can tackle stains and get great results with ease.

How do I dry my car interior after cleaning?

The trick to cleaning upholstery and carpets in your car is to avoid over-wetting the fabric. That way, you won’t damage the material or have to wait ages for the seats or carpet to dry before using your car.

Simoniz Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner contains powerful cleaning agents that cut through dirt, stains, and bad odours without saturating soft surfaces. The innovative brush head works the product deep into the fibres of the material, lifting marks and stains without the need for excess water.

Once you’ve applied our Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner, wait five minutes to give the product time to work, then wipe with a damp cloth or sponge then vacuum the whole area. This not only removes excess residue but actively helps dry the upholstery and carpet more quickly so it’s not only clean but also smells fresh.

Can I use upholstery cleaner on leather seats?

No, we wouldn’t recommend using Simoniz Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner on leather seats. Instead, try our Conditioning Leather Cleaner, which cleans, nourishes and protects the material in a single product.

Leather may be a premium material, but it can be tricky to take care of. You need to use the right products to ensure it’s kept clean and nourished and protected from marks and fading.

Never use any cleaners not intended for leather on your car’s leather seats or trim. The material is susceptible to stains which can be impossible to remove, so always buy leather-specific cleaning and maintenance products.
