    Any Miracle Stain Cleaners for Alcantara?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I have a few dark stains on my grey Alcantara that for years I have never been able to get out. Went to a detailer who shampooed the Alcantara and still no work.

    Any advice, do it yourself formulas, or specific miracle products?

    Have you tried Oxy Clean? I would suggest making a paste type mixture with water and using a toothbrush (or something similar). Definitely test it in an inconspicuous spot first like under the front side of one of the front seats.

    Sonax is a legit stain remover or just good to get general dirt off? I guess I'll have to give it a try regardless.

    I'll second this method, it worked great at removing ballpoint pen ink out of my prior B8 Panda interior.
