One of these days I'll stop buying stuff and just burn my money instead. It's more efficient.
Just don't let it sit in your office for the next 8 months.

I had some stuff I ordered in 2021.. I been buying parts and working. Not much installing. Pulled the vortex xl outta the box a year after ordering it .. decided I didn't want to run it sold it and changed directions.. sat on 5k in parts for almost 2 years. Just buying shit. And working. Lol. Packages come in. I go to work. (Overtime) covid was tough on the prison. And California opened the checkbook. I took full advantage. Now things are better. And it's time to install and blow up the engine. Lol see tpc770 post.

It's ok, they never get hot enough to crack.
Still setting a bad example.

The good news is, you'll sell the car to buy another Golf and maybe I'll talk you out of doing the same mod 4 times in a row

This thing sucks.
Is that the equivalent of “this guy fucks” but for a vacuum?

... up all the water and dirt from your seats?
Unfortunately no. You're supposed to spray some Oxy solution from the wand, then use a scrubber to scrub and then it sucks away that solution from the scrub. The sonax interior cleaner with a brush and wet cloth does a better job and it is easier.

Hopefully should be cleaning my interior this week. I'll update if i have better results with the bissel.

What kind of seats do you have and what condition are they in? If they are cloth and lightly soiled use a good interior cleaner, like Daks suggestion of Sonax. I use Optimum Carpet and Interior cleaner. That you can dilute up to 3:1 for light to medium soil. I had a few cars that I had to resort to APC full strength, mostly soccer mom's minivans.

The only time I use an extractor is when the fabric is soiled through, like liquid stains. I still pretreat the seat with the interior cleaner and a brush, then using as hot water as I can get, I use the extractor to do a one pass spraying and vacuuming the water as I go. I don't use the brush on the extractor, too stiff for car seats.

For vinyl and leather, this brush is the best.


If you have a rotary polisher (Harbor Freights cheap one will work great) a wool pad on it works wonders on interiors. Just make sure you run it on high against a spur or something to get rid of all the lose fabric on it.
