Default Cleaning the carpets

Had a little free time today so decided to shampoo the carpets. Winter took it'* toll.



Lot of salt and dirt. Got out the shop vac and cleaned these up.

I've got a carpet cleaner as well...puppies and sick dogs will do that to you. The upholstery attachment works great inside the car. Dump some Febreze in the water tank before hand as well, and it get'* deep into the carpet and helps keep odors out.

I beat my floor mats clean, and then I take the regular house vacuum cleaner outside with an extension cord and I vacuum the inside with the little hose. Speaking of which I should clean mine out soon as well. I spent this week on the outside polishing my rims and tires. =)
