    99 cent bottle of rubbing alcohol works the best

    I have heard you can use windex or rubbing alcohol but the Sonax stuff isn't all that expensive and it smells good. I was surprised at how much dirt it pulled out. I use it twice a year to keep things clean. I picked up a brass suede brush at my local shoe store for $1.50 to lift the alcantara pile back up after it dries.

    apply alcohol to rag, place rag on wheel, rub it in- not too hard, not too soft- just right

    thats it

    for the seats spray it on dont be stingy ( most spray bottle tops screw right onto the alcohol bottle ) wipe it off any "leather" areas, allow to sit, wipe with clean cloth or microfiber, good time to leather condition the rest too

    Do you need a brush or can you use a rag? Brass suede brush, sounds interesting I will have to look into that.
