Default Even a steam cleaner wont clean it....
At least thats what Ford said. Who knows if they even tried it. I got mud stains on some of my interior trim and nothing seems to be able to clean it off. Ive tried brushing it with an old toothbrush and every cleaner i could get my hands on. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas or has/had this same problem.

A good hot water extractor is over $1000 for the machine. I doubt the Ford dealer has anybody really good at detailing. Know of any really good professional detailers in the area?

This guy's website looks a lot like the guy I use in Knoxville. Might be worth a try - if nothing else, ask him if he thinks he can get it out before trying.

Cleaners won't take that out? Odd. I've seen before where the plastic was scratched and it got some dirt in it to where you couldn't get it out. Idk why that wouldn't come off though.

This is why I tell Yukon I don't want him off-roading with the windows open. Good luck getting it out.

I've used degreaser with some fantastic and a pretty decently hard bristled brush.
