Detailers Some Help please

hi guys,

My dad recently decided to be nice and have my car cleaned for me. It was a nice gesture but I didnt think he would have them slop on a shit ton of interior cleaner, and let me tell you they did a horrible job. They missed a ton of spots and it is very very greasy.

Here is my question, how can i remove the cleaner? (I have also let the car sit for about a week and it is still shiny and greasy

Any suggestions?

Im no expert but try just wiping it down with a damp microfiber and see if that helps.

Zaino has a leather cleaner and conditioner that both work very well. Plus it will smell like leather when you're done and not cleaner. Just use the cleaner with a MF towel and go over it all a couple of times - They follow with the conditioner.

If you want to do this write, you'll need to use a little physical agitation. A product like 1Z Cockpit Premium has light cleaning ability and when coupled with a brush can help to remove the nasty product currently on the interior. If that doesn't do the trick, you can step it up to a brush with diluted Woolite (15:1).

+1 for 1Z cockpit premium. It's really effective at getting off slopped on interior cleaner. If it's on the leather, though, use a leather cleaner.
