How to Clean The Roof Lining (DIY Home Formula)

Many of my friends ask me this question, how can you clean the ceiling upholstery of my car? And if I know of a product to remove the stain. It's a simple job, and with the right technique, you can get a good result at home.

The upholstery gets dirty quickly, and there are different materials, but in general, you use a fabric that is very delicate. In this article, you can learn how to clean the ceiling upholstery using a homemade formula.

Necessary elements for cleaning

  • 2 Microfiber Cloths
  • Pink foam
  • Upholstery cleaner (home formula)

The product for cleaning the upholstery (home formula)

Two products that are used for cleaning at home can be used for this purpose. The first product is odorless mineral spirit, the same as used in dry cleaners. The second product is the Vanish for colored clothes (you can use liquid or powder), and you can use a multipurpose degreaser or vinegar.


Warsaw comes in a sprinkler or spray presentation, and we recommend this for its application. The concentration of the product should be used according to the stains (more mineral spirit content in case the stain is more difficult). Mix mineral spirit with vanish and water (you can use a multipurpose degreaser or vinegar as an option).

Cleaning process

Wet the microfiber cloth or foam with the formula and apply gently to the affected or dirty part. With a dry cloth, go over the wet part.

Repeat the process only on the affected parts, making straight and uniform movements.

The wet ceiling should be allowed to dry completely before spraying cleaner, this in case the ceiling upholstery remains dirty after the upholstery has been cleaned.

If there are still stains on the upholstery, you can use other vehicle cleaning products, or resort to home remedies, such as a water-soap or water-and-degreaser mixture of water and vinegar in moderation, and when you are finished, let it dry.

You can also use a car wash to do this work. Don't have the extra time or experience to do it? Don't worry, because as you can see, it is an easy and fast operation. For a better illustration, we leave you a video of the process.
