    Best Upholstery and Exterior Cleaners?

    I am sure there have been quite a few threads about this subject in the past, but I can't seem to find anything yet, so I thought I would ask again. What is everybodys choices for interior leather, upholstery, carpet and accessories cleaners? Also, what does everybody use to both clean and protect the exterior of their boats including graphics?

    I am having my boat worked on right now and I may have somebody detail it for me, but in case I choose to do it myself I'm looking for suggestions. If I do have someone else clean it what questions should I ask when looking for a quality job?

    Thanks for your help!

    Vinyl: Simple Green and a cloth.
    Carpet: Simple Green and a brush.
    Bilge: Simple Green and hot water then go boating and let it slosh
    Engine: Simple Green and hot water.
    Washing boat: Simple Green and a sponge.
    Dandruff: Ahhh...nevermind

    I dilute it about half strength except for the bilge and engine cleaning where full power and hot water are the key.

    As far as wax, Liquid Glass is great and lasts longer than anything I have tried.

    Intolerent, do you have stock in Simple green??

    Fantastik works great on vinyl also.
    Castrol SuperClean or Zep Orange Cleaner in the bilge
    Resolve for the carpets

    No stock but I buy it in bulk at Sams club. DO NOT get Castrol Super Clean on aluminum. It will etch it.
