Default Carpet Shampooing

I recently cleaned my carpet with my mom'* Bissel steam cleaner. Well it'* not really steam, but you put in hot water and some carpet cleaner, and use this special little hand-held wand to spray on the water and then you suck it back off with the vacuum.

On some real bad spots, I used a fingernail brush to really clean it up. By the way I used the non-allergenic shampoo bissell sells for this, it was great and smells good too.

In a nutshell, this works great on the carpet. A day or two and it is totally dry. It'* the way to go !!!!! BTW, it takes quite a while to get all the dirt out, especially the floor mats. So plan on a full day for this project.

After I did this and installed my new wheels, everyone wanted to know where I got the new car !!!

I use the turtle wax 'power out' and have had good luck with it, I only have to leave the doors open for an hour for it to completely dry.
