    I use a little known product called "AWESOME" its sold in the Dollar type stores in a plain generic type spray bottle.I've turned Detail Shops on to this stuff because it is amazing at times.

    Spray everything liberally(floor to ceiling) wipe till dry ,apply again to stubborn areas. Wipe with a clean cloth.

    Use a small bucket of clean water to rinse rag in,change water often for a better level of "clean"

    I also spray cloth seats and all carpeted ares,then run the carpet shampooer over those,rinsing twice then allow to dry.

    Im telling you,there isnt much this stuff wont clean up.:biggrin_25514:

    For everyday spot cleaning I use Simple Green.

    As long as the spill isn't on carpet, but the hard floor...pour some black coffee on it and wipe clean...no sticky left....then any common cleaner to "balance out the clean spot on your floor!

    But if it's a real stubborn stain...you get this young lady to help:

    I didn't think anyone used that stuff but me!


    I've been using it for a couple of years and it works great!


    Funny little story about it...Some truckstop doorknocker came up and tried to sell some AWESOME to me for $10.00 a bottle.
    He said he'd do a side by side comparison with any cleaning product that I used so I said " I'd like to see that." and went and got my bottle of AWESOME out of my jockey box...When he saw it he knew he was busted and just shrugged and said "You can't blame a guy for trying"....I agree, You can't blame a guy for trying and I thought it was a pretty good scam to tell you the truth.

    Now....If he walks up to Sonnys truck he's probably gonna sell about 10 bottles to the new Swifty rookie that needs to have a squeaky clean truck!:biggrin_2559:

    Been using this stuff for over 10 years or better and its well worth the $1.00
    per bottle.
    I only buy the refill jugs now and refill the better quality sprayer I find at SAMS Club.(they sell a 5 pack that has two "foam" sprayers that are the #####)

    Anyway . . . . . . no joke this stuff will almost take 5th wheel grease out of your cloths!
