Mothers Interior Products.

I was given the opportunity to review quite a few of the Mothers products and this interior cleaning product review is the first one of many more to come. First I would like to thank Forrest and Jim because without their generosity these reviews would not be possible and you guys would be missing out or overlooking some very good products.

The fact that most of them are very easy to find at almost any retailer or auto parts store means no shipping charges or waiting on products which is a real plus.

As most reviews go they normally concentrate on one specific product where this is a multi product review so this is going to be a little different, and was done using only Mothers products other than the Bissell Little green machine.

Each of these products has a specific use and could be used as a standalone product if needed, but when used as a system or kit as I like to call it, these products complement each other and complete the process or system with excellent results.

With the Mothers line of interior products an interior cleaning kit is very easy to assemble to meet all of your interior cleaning needs.

My interior kit consisted of the following products and can be assembled for less than 80.00 if you choose to also purchase the towels at the current prices listed.

Mothers online store. https://store.mothers.com/index.php
Mothers Protectant $8.49
Mothers Leather Cleaner $6.99
Mothers Leather Conditioner $7.99
Mothers VLR $8.99
Mothers Glass Cleaner $4.39
Mothers Carpet & Upholstery All Fabric Cleaner $8.99
Mothers Carpet & Upholstery Brush $3.99
Mothers Detail Brush 2 pak $2.99
Mothers Multi-Purpose Microfiber Towel 12-Pack $25.00
Bissell Little Green Machine Pro Heat


All products were used according to the manufactures instructions and are what a user following these instructions can expect.

Now on to the pictures.
This is a co-workers Chevy pick up crew cab that they were going to using on vacation to tow their camper and wanted the interior cleaned up before the trip and the exterior done when they get back.

The kit assembled and ready to go!



Just a little dusty.


Typical dirt on the drivers door panel.





Ground in dirt!



Drivers side rear carpet. Yum M&M's



I think this was dried chocolate milk. Not sure didn't do a taste test.



Rear passenger carpet. Melted chocolate between the seats.










Rear drivers side seat. Some kind of hard stuck on candy and other stuff.



More chocolate between the seats.






50/50 on the drivers seat.




Rinse water from 50/50 on the drivers seat. YUK!



Dirty seat belt. I have a trick for these!



Drivers carpet.





Now to the finished pictures.

Drivers carpet and pedals all clean. tada



Yep it's the same seat! Trick for cleaning seat belts is to soak them with cleaner and scub them up and blow out the dirt with compressed air.



Panel all spifted up.



Rear seats and carpets all cleaned up. Candy and chocolate all gone. Looking good!












Looks as good as new!






I hope you guys enjoyed the review as much as the owner enjoyed driving off in his clean interior

Looks great! Are the seats coated leather or vinyl?

Thank you. They are leather with vinyl side panels. You can see cracks in the side of the drivers seat just above the seat controls.

Great work! How can anyone live with an interior like that? You made the interior look much better, as close as you can get to having a brand new interior.

Nice review and great job!

If you're feeling extra anal-retentive, when vacuuming carpet, use alternating passes to create a checkerboard pattern. It's like leaving a mint on the pillow. Or whatever.

I would've asked the same question...prior to being married with baby.

Yep, and if they play outdoor sports when they get older - forget about it.

When I took my wife to the hospital with labor pains on our first child, I had her sit on a trash bag in case her water broke on the way.

I guess that wasn't a good idea. She refused to do it with the second.

Well it's nice to know I'm not the only enthusiast around here with these types of dilemmas.
