Cleaning rat fur

I may have DD talked into leaving the rat fur if we can get it clean. What's the best way to clean the stains from the wall covering on the scam?

I had really good luck with a hand held carpet cleaner (and prespotted bad area)
Went over everything twice with shampoo and rinsed a couple of times
Dried quickly.... I would try it in
A small hidden spot first

I've used automotive upholstery cleaner as directed on the can. Then I take a damp towel and wipe it all down. Then I use my shop vac with the filter removed and suck it up as much as I can. Then I leave the trailer as open as I can to dry with a circulating fan inside.

This stuff has a strong smell of its own until dried and dissipated for about a week. So plan ahead especially if your sensitive to smells.

Its far cheaper and easier than replacing rat fur.

I will check into the automotive carpet cleaner we actually used Wesley's bleach white on a couple of bad areas last night. It worked pretty good

Yep, my vote is for the Folex too. Works well and easily on both the rat fur and my household carpets.

I haven't used Folex in my Scamp, but have in my home. I buy it at Lowe's.
