Mouse fur cleaning

What have others come up with for cleaning the mouse fur walls? Mine are a bit grungy.

I used the upholstery tool on a Bissell carpet cleaner. Worked great!

Spray with 'Resolve' carpet cleaner, "scrub" with a nylon bristle brush and vacuum dry.

Resolve is really good stuff on spot stains. On larger general areas, I like to use either 409 or automotive spray "Tuff Stuff" on a towel, and then rub with the towel.

Can anybody tell me what exactly "mouse fur" looks like? I have a 2004 Safari 22 FB and it has a carpet like covering on the interior skin. Is that mouse fur or is there another covering that enjoys that title?

Hi, Mouse Fur is slang for the beige looking carpet that is glued to the walls. It's also great for sticking pictures on it with Velcro.

I'm sure that steam would clean it well, but seems it might also loosen the glue holding it to the wall?

Simple peroxide which drug stores sell as antiseptic.

I've tried all the things mentioned above, except steam. The general dirt and grime comes off, but mine still shows the black spots where aluminum has oxidized black behind and bled through. Hope someone will post something that removes that.

The best thing I've found for spot & general cleaning the mouse fur is; saturate spots or dampen generally with Folex, stiff bristle brush, and vacuuming while it is still wet.

The black spots are usually from aluminum dust due to movement around rivets. I have pointed out my solution a couple of times: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f39/...tml#post739769 .

Our black spots still are well-concealed. Some new ones have appeared in the last couple of years, but I haven't taken care of them yet.

Finally got off my duff and cleaned the walls. I used Oxiclean Versatile powder mixed in a spray bottle with water. Vacuumed, spayed the Oxoclean on, let set a few minutes, wipe with paper towel, sprayed some more and wiped some more. Gave the walls another good vacuuming. It may not look like brand new but it is 100% better. Rusty/black spots and other mystery spots are gone.

I have some Resolve upholstery cleaner in the trailer. I have heard others suggest Stanley Steemer, so maybe the steam isn't applied long enough to soften the glue? Seems like a home carpet/upholstery cleaning machine (Shark?) would work. Resolve works pretty good. Seems like any household cleaner would work- 409, Fantastick, Spic-n-Span-
