- Removing black chain shiz… From a car headliner…
Yeah, it was me, and yup, it was my wife’s car. Hooray.
Any tips/products? I’ve blotted, then tried a baby wipe. That certainly didn’t help. :/Posted 2 years ago

That wouldn’t help with maximising value for the imminent sale of said car, and subsequent arrival of replacement. Which appears to have been chosen so there’s not even a chance of a bike ever fitting in it ever. She’s a crafty one.Posted 2 years ago
Carpet cleaner, worked well in our car. In the past I’ve used 1001, Vanish, and Sainsburys is respectable.Posted 2 years ago
Car Brake cleaner on a rag (test somewhere 1st as it also removes dye)Posted 2 years ago

I had some autoglym interior car shampoo / upholstery cleaner that worked well under similar circumstances – white bottle, spray straight onto the stain… Mop a few minutes later.Posted 2 years ago
GT85 tends to work and smells nice
Test first though! And it’s dabbing off not rubbing in!Posted 2 years ago
WD40 alsoPosted 2 years ago
Lighter fluid…no need for a match!
I suppose its works like GT85 and diesel without the odour. Good luck.Posted 2 years ago
white lightening clean streak always did it for me when i had a stupid car that didnt take full bikes.Posted 2 years ago

I’ve been there but not bike chain oil. Don’r rub, but dab. If you rub you’ll mess up the pile, or whatever, and even if you get the oil out you’ll dee where you’ve attacked it as it will be a noticeable patch that is roughed up.Posted 2 years ago
soap is effective at removing grease. lots of soap, lots of water but don’t spread it around. Worked for me cleaning up a car I was selling.Posted 2 years ago
Worked for me when I did it.

Handily,my wife works at s car manufacturer with a ‘press fleet’. A bottle of wine later, and someone with a lot of knowledge of removing marks from upholstery had basically applied most of the above, and it’s very, very faint now!
We’ve been advised to work a bit more cleaner into the pile with a toothbrush, then try to blend the area, but to be honest, it’s pretty much gone now!
Thanks loads for the advice 🙂Posted 2 years ago
