PRODUT REVIEW: SONAX INTERIOR CAR CLEANER.
I have some respects over SONAX products – they are from Germany, since 1950.
Almost after three and half years, I felt my seat covers need cleaning. Of course, I keep it very neat the sparingly used car, but it gets dirty whenever sent to regular service.
I could see some stains here and there and the seat cover was little bit shinny due to sweat and dirt wax. Glass cleaner Collin is really good in cleaning the soft beige fabric door pad and handles but not on my fabric seat cover. Fabric texture easily get dirty, requires regular maintenance as they are blend of cotton and rexin. But, they are cheap and comfortable in all weather.
So, I wanted to try some good product but kept a mindset that not to expect a magic or miracles. This product necessarily has to be less aggressive, soft and texture friendly or otherwise bleach the color and damage the fine fibers.
There are excellent products in the market for vinyl and leather cleaning as/FOR
W = Water based cleaning only
S = Solvent based cleaning only
SW = Solvent and water-based cleaning
X = Professional cleaning only
I wanted a good Solvent and water-based cleaning like a dry cleaning type which will evaporate at the earliest from fabric and, so I end up with SONAX Interior Car Cleaner.
1. Cleaned the area by vacuum cleaner and moist cloth.
2. Sprayed Sonax and rubbed softly in a circular motion with yellow round sponge ( used for waxing)
3. Cleaned the surface with moist soft cotton banian cloth.
4. Wiped and dried with MF cloth. Observations: PLUS
Very good, cleans well the superficial layer, gives a nice luster and restores color, Mild lovely odor.
Beautifully designed PET bottle with trigger spray, pleasure to spray. MINUS
Expensive (Rs.430/- for 500ml), one bottle will only be enough for one or two applications for the entire interior of the car, depends upon the size and dirt.
Stubborn stains needs to be removed by other means like using Amway silicone glaze polisher, alcohol. Recommendation :
Nothing wrong to try if you have a fabric seat or want to clean your car roof fabric.
