That looks like an interesting product. How many of them do you use in your AS and how long do the packets last?

Thanks

I have had good luck with stains using Oxyclean, scrub brush and shop vac.

I hired a professional carpet cleaner to come and clean the Ozite wall covering. He worked all day and didnt' make a dent in it.

I had vertical streaks on the mouse fur at the corners of the windows and anywhere screws were used to mount things. Pretty sure it was aluminum oxide from the moldings and rust/corrosion from the screws and the aluminum they were screwed into. At first I was afraid it was from leaks but several sessions in the trailer in heavy rains showed no leaks. Then on a cold night while running the carpet cleaner to clean the mouse fur I saw condensation dripping off the moldings. I'm pretty sure that was the source of my stains, probably from the POs camping in cold weather. I ultimately had the best results with a Bissell upright carpet cleaner using the upholstery attachment. It took multiple ( 5 or more) passes on each stained spot but reduced them substantially.

I went looking for OxyClean at the market today and all i found was OxyClean dishwasher detergent. Is that what you used? I've seen other posts referring to it.

Cleaning fabric walls

I believe the OxyClean mentioned above is sold in a small tub as a laundry detergent booster and is normally found on the aisle with the detergents. I think I've also seen an OxyClean spot and stain remover in a spray bottle. I would try the powder dissolved in water and sponged on. As they always say, try this on an inconspicuous area first (under the dinette maybe?). I've got some freckles on my mouse fur that came from the PO and I need to try this solution also.

I've thought that some of the dark places were either glue that was too thick from the factory or where the windows have sweated and water ran down. I haven't gotten the places off but they are behind the couch so I haven't been too concerned. I need to try the oxy though.

There is a website for Oxyclean. They have a lot of different products and some suggestions on cleaning. They always say to start in an inconspicuous place :-)

Tried some OxyClean spray

I bought the OxyClean spray yesterday and sprayed it on several spots on the ozite. I scrubbed it with a brush and then rinse/wiped it with a wet towel. The spots are probably 50% or more gone. Definitely faded. I'll give them another treatment today and see how that works out. But it's much better!!

Those spots are almost certainly caused by the aluminum. It could be a little nick or an unused screw or rivet hole or just a place where the fabric rubs. If you have ever buffed aluminum, you'll see how dirty is is. Abrasions such as grinding is very dusty. I worked in the metal fabrication industry for quite a while and I have seen the mess aluminum can make.

I emailed AS support about the wall covering in my 2006 Safari and got this reply. Instead of 'mouse fur' they refer to it as the 'wall rag'.

The spots come from the screws and rivets, and a lot of aluminum shavings that are left behind the wall rug. I just finished replacing most of the wall rug in my camper; I had to work with a vacuum cleaner to clean up all of the aluminum shavings and dust.
The rivets get loose and rub against the aluminum wall, causing black dust to form. The factory tapes over most of the rivets heads on the walls, but not all of them. The tape prevents most of the dust from getting on the wall rug.
The black marks are not just from leaks, as some of the wall rugs I replaced where not near anything that might leak.

we have had good experience cleaning our mouse fur walls with grocery store grade, foaming, Woolite rug cleaner. and yes, there is one small streak that we've never gotten out, no matter what we've tried. but, it's hidden behind a drape!


"Oxy Clean" is primarily comprised of a DuPont product called Oxone. it is also commonly known as potasssium monopersulfate, or, potassium peroxymonosulfate, or simply, MPS.

you can often find it in bulk (one pound, three pound, five pound, etc.) at a favorable price at a good spa or pool supplier. here in the northeast, for example, we used to buy it at Namco Pools in 5# plastic containers of their product called "Saf-T-Shock."

ymmv.

Done with the carpet walls

I found the ultimate way to clean the carpet walls in a 98 Safari. I turned them into a CCD model.
