    My truck sat for awhile while I was rebuilding it. It had a small leak in the door which I ended up fixing, However the interior of my truck grew some mold. I was able to clean up the dash for the most part but I dont know how to get it out of the carpet and seats. The seams of the seats too. I dont want to just throw any kind of cleaner on it especially bathroom cleaner becuase it has bleach. I have grey cloth interior pictured here.

    Does anyone have idea about the safest way I can do this. The hardest place to get it out of so far is the seat belts. Its gotten into the threads and kind of dyed it.
    Thanks

    The stuff in the red can and brush, is it carpet cleaner? I bought some stuff in a red can that had a brush on the end at shucks. I am not sure of the brand but it did NOTHING to the seat belts. Its GREAT on carpet and okay not on the seats but it did nothing for the seat belts. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    Do they make Poop cleaner? lol

    I will look for that Tuff Job cleaner or something like that.

    Its weird becuase instead of white like the rest of the mold it is black spots. Maybe I will take it to a detail shop and see what they can do with it too.
