I just noticed that I have some spots on my headliner as well. I was looking at it thinking to myself, how the hell do I clean that? I have no help for you man, but hopefully someone does and I can get mine clean as well.

I use carpet cleaner with the brush on top. Works great. G/f got makeup on the visor with the mirror and that took it right out. Also my 3rd brake light leaked and this took out the water stain on it.

headliners are delicate so the main thing is to be very careful with how you clean it. If you use a brush or something to agitate it be aware you'll end up with a fuzzy spot where you scrub most of the time.

I generally use a mixture of woolite w/ water and a soft cloth to clean as gently as possible. What is it thats on here? Dirt, grease, soda??

Be careful - most headliners are glued with water based glue that breaks down over time when you use alot of water. I always wiped the spots with a "damp" towel and that was it. There usually pretty easy to clean and the dirt is mostly light and not ground in. The worst thing to do is spray one down with cleaner, scrub it and roll the windows up on a hot day. Recipe for disaster.

Don't use anything mixed with water (APC or anything else for that matter) you need to keep it dry as possible. I generally don't like using APC anyways on headliner as most require rinsing. If just the "damp" towel doesn't cut it use a foaming cleaner. I use a citrus based one when I do smoke cars as the citrus cuts right through it.

Werd. I usually use a little foam cleaner sprayed onto a MF towel. I dont spray it directly onto the headliner. Has taken out everything ive used it on so far...
