best way to wash car interior

Hey guys, I am in desperate need of washing the carpets/cloth seats on my jeep wrangler. 2011 if it helps to know the cloth material in case anyone is familiar. It rained a lot in it and now i have a funky smell in the car from this passed weekend. Do anyone of you have any tips or soaps you guys use?

Any help will be really appreciated!

Rent a Rug Doctor with an upholstery attachment and use the oxyclean solution. We just did our car interiors this past weekend and they turned out great.

biggest thing is get all the soap/cleaner vacumed/rinsed out. otherwise, everytime you sit in it and sweat from now on you will smell like the cleaner.

Sometimes it is better to pay a pro to do the job for you. If you have one of the flood and fire cleanup companies around you see if they will clean the seats and carpet for you. They have much better equipment than you will be able to rent and all of the right cleaners to do it right the first time. You may have mold growing under the carpet in the padding and insulation on the floor as well.

Scoop out all the offending stuff, wash windows, then put down a bunch of old quilts and drive it to the crusher. Oh wait.. you didn't shoot Marvin in the head... you are actually wanting to clean it and drive it.

Yeah, hit up craigslist or take it to a pro.. If you live anywhere that it gets cool at night now and don't get the carpets perfectly dry it will take FOREVER to dry and could induce some mold growth.

You're a man. If your car doesn't have some kind of odor from tools, sports gear, paintball gear, etc you are no longer a man.

Febreeze.

i will try the febreeze, but i really need to wash the carpets. I don't want mold or mildew in it.

it's rained a lot in my jeep these past few months and it rained this weekend (i left my rear windows off and went out of town) and now it smells.

This. Its a pretty popular way to do things among automotive enthusiasts. I've never done it myself, but wouldn't hesitate to do so. And do make sure you try to vacuum all the "dampness" out after, though it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Best to do it on a warmer, nice day (or entire weekend) when you can leave everything open and just let the interior dry out as best as possible.

Best way to do it is to take the seats out and remove the carpet completely. Rent a rug doctor, clean it, and let it dry completely. You can layout the carpet in your house and use the rug doctor on it.
