    Default Dried up mud water

    inside my Jeep for over a year. Trying all day to clean it up, and it's not working.
    Using my wife's steam clean machine with shampoo and all the goods. This poor thing is still nasty.

    Help this poor man's machine of doom and dirt shine again.

    Thought of that, but we're talking my dash, doors, roll bar, top interior, seats... seems like electronic damage waiting to happen. Is there some magic technique.

    P.S. I have a sub in the back, CB, gps. all hooked up.

    baby wipe and alot of time <---- Best technique.

    also if you need to get it off roll bar / seats use a hand brush and brush it off. It gets 95% of it.

    other than a marine radio deck ive sprayed EVERYTHING on the inside with the pressure washer. never had an issue yet. as long as everything dries out properly before you energize it you should be fine.

    I have steam cleaner upholstery shampoo i've been using all day, I think it's the same. I think I might spot scrub with simple green and pressure wash it to death and hope everything dries.

    simple green makes it like new man. spray with simple green, let it sit for a few minutes, hit it with a brush then use water in a spray bottle for 'spot cleaning' or sensitive areas.
