if its only dust, then use the normal house vacuum cleaner...more powerful that the car ones......also depends whether u can get access to a powerpoint :P seen some people living in 1st & 2nd floor of HDB using long extention to their car parked nearby

Me stay at 7th floor
so if wanted to use the normal house vacuum cleaner, then the extention wire must be supper long lor

Can try out the Mobil Station next to Sime Darby Centre at Dunearn Road.
I think it cost $2 for 10n min or so.

if you have one of those 'wet' vaccuum cleaners, then it'll help alot.
plain vaccuuming wun remove all the dust. Even if you do remove all the dust, it'll come back again in a few days.
best is to 'upgrade' to leather
. No dusty problems.

Yes, am considering to change it to leather
But because of $$$, so holding back for quite some time
Do you know where to get a cheaper price for leather
seat, not necessary full leather
, 1/2 leather

I've seen one upholstery shop along Thomson road.. just immediately after the SHELL petrol kiosk.. towards Novena church.
It's a small shop that can do upholstery of all kinds.. Seen a few cars there doing leather
seat installations too.
Else I reckon the most cost effective is to go up north.. not sure which shop exactly, but maybe some of the members here can suggest and give u directions.

last time i used a formy spray, it soaked the fabric and loosened the dust etc, then just used a wet cloth to wipe over the fabric, the result was quite impressive
Posted 16 June 2004 - 05:59 PM
May I know what is the name of the spray, & where can I get it from. Thanks!

i managed to find two cans in my cupboard just now:-
'Dri-Cleen' by SIMONIZ, and 'Carpet $ Upholstery Cleaner' by POLYGLAZE... if i remember correctly, some DIY stores are selling them... (i bought and used them a few years ago, quite effective!!
