BMW 840ci Headlining cleaning method

Asked by Sep 27, 2014 at 05:52 AM about the 1999 BMW 8 Series 840ci

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Please let me have ideas for the best method of cleaning the headlining.  I suspect that the marks may be dried soft drink sugars.

Dab Warm water and a mild dish washing detergent like Joy on a cotton cloth on the affected areas. Dab with a dry cotton cloth. Repeat.

I've found Simple Green to be an excellent cleaner. The headliner fabric does have nap to it, so be gentle - a microfiber white cloth is probably your safest bet.
