cleaning interior

Scrubbing, scrubbing, scrubbing! Any suggestions on what to clean the interior with. 1972 Land Yacht, all original. Dingy color on the walls, think it's been cooked in a lot and possibly smoked in but I can't tell. Have suggestions?

Hippiechick,

The best product for that is a spray called KRUD KUTTER. I know from experience while getting my ARGOSY ready for an interior paint job. See post 181 here:

I think you will find it at HOME DEPOT.

Scrub until clean, in a week wonder how the walls got stickey again, scrub until clean...repeat...repeat...

About the 7th or 8th scrubbing the walls sill remain unstickey for about a month...keep repeating, and repeating, and repeating.

Eventually all of the nasties will complete leaching out of the vinyl.

We need pics!

I ended up using Kurd Kutter and scrubbed w the 3M non-abrasive green scrubbie
It says on the pkg non-abrasive. Wipe off with good quality paper towels.
I used every cleaner know to man and this WAS the cats meow!
Walmart and Lowes also sells K.K.
Jane
I use the stuff on walls, also.

Janie Q has it right. I used ALL of the products mentioned so far, only to have Denis' experience.

ONLY Krud Kutter worked. It doesn't matter what the magic is; it really works on that sticky vinyl covered aluminum.

Pics I hope!

Trying to add some pics to the post. Picked this Airstream up recently, she's my first one. 1972 Trade Winds. At the moment, just scrubbing interior. Found out yesterday everytime I tried to plug in the electric, I blew a breaker. Going to finish the scrubbing and dig into that.

I just did mine with krud kutter and then a vinegar and water rinse. Worked very well.

When you click on the "GO ADVANCED" on the reply screen, there is a tiny paper clip icon, click there and a screen will pop up and you can upload a picture there from your computer.

Where in Oklahoma are you? We are SW of OKC.

Good Luck! ...and BTW, I agree, Krud Kutter is the one and only!
