Cleaning The Dirtiest Car Interior Ever! Complete Disaster Farm Truck Car Detailing Ep. 13

welcome back to Stauffer Garage guys
today’s detail is of an f-350 super duty
lariat edition that is used as a service
truck to work on tractors so it is super
dusty on the inside but the good news is
with this one we’re gonna be busting out
the extractor we’re gonna have the steam
cleaner we’re gonna have every tool you
can possibly imagine clean the pressure
washer to get this car completely clean
on the inside it’s going to turn out
incredible by the end of this video after we are done deep cleaning and
I know you guys are gonna enjoy all the
different steps that I use to make these
cars look clean again so if you are new

way next time you guys see a video it
shows up in a notification box that way
you don’t miss them it’s awesome and if
you guys are on Instagram follow me on
staff or garage I post content that you
don’t see in my videos but let’s go
ahead and roll right into this detail we
have our work cut out for us holy I
didn’t know what that was that just
moved behind they scared the crap out of
me Wow Wow
now the first thing with any detail is
to remove the floor mats remove anything
inside the cupholders the door panels
the side sills anything in the car that
is larger than what your vacuum is able
to suck up
now because this car is as dirty as it
is we will be removing the front seat
which if you decide that you want to
remove the seats for your vehicle in
your detail typically most seats are
only held in with four bolts
there’s typically a wiring connector
underneath the seat that’s easily
disconnected for you to remove those
seats for easy cleaning
and as you can see here if I did not
remove these seats all of this dirt and
dust that I’m seen in these carpet
fibers would not have been possible to
get to if the seats stayed in the
and since I’m going to be extracting the
carpets I highly recommend you wear
protection on your harness connectors
and putting a glove over them some sort
of baggy anything to kind of protect any
moisture from getting inside those
connectors always protective now that we
have a ton more room inside the vehicle
I’m gonna go ahead and vacuum up any of
the dirt any of the loose particles on
the surface of the carpet I’m also using
my bristle brush to get any of the caked
on dirt on the pedals on the door sills
on the carpet itself by lightly
scrubbing them it loosens them up from
the surface and allows the vacuum
cleaner to suck them up very easily
now I didn’t remove the rear seats
because the bolts in the intricacy of
the whole mechanism for these seats was
a little bit too intense for me to
remove it also did not have a ton of
dirt underneath him because of how the
seats are shaped it doesn’t allow a lot
of dirt into the back of him ideally you
would remove him but in this case it
wasn’t necessary
make sure when you’re doing your
vacuuming you get underneath your seats
like in these cases these seats have
cargo bays underneath them so by lifting
them up vacuuming those areas in between
them in the seat belt buckles and then
when you’re also vacuuming your seats
make sure you’re pulling apart this
seems a little bit to get any of that
dirt in there
now to clean the door sills in the
doorframe here I’m using an all-purpose
cleaner and I’m using my bristle brush
on the frame and then I’m using my drill
brush on the actual door so plastic
panel because it has a lot of different
textured surface areas and make it hard
to get to and it makes it a lot quicker
to use the drill brush in a microfiber
towel just to wipe it clean
same applies for the door panel frame
I’m using my bristle brush an
all-purpose cleaner and an all-purpose
cleaner across the entire door panel and
the bristle brush for the switches and
all the different intricate spots that
are hard to get to that you wouldn’t be
able to with a microfiber towel
because the seats are removed working on
the pedals working on these side panels
of the center console it makes it a lot
easier not having the seats in the car
and get him a lot of those stains from
spilled drinks and other things they
kind of get in between the seat in the
center console area that you wouldn’t
typically be able to get to if they were
left in the vehicle
also any of the products that I use in
my videos I always try to link them in
the description box below for you guys
so that way if you want to pick up those
products you can as well
when it comes to cleaning the dashboard
the bristle brushes that I use are
always highly recommended especially
trying to get into the air vent creases
getting into the steering wheel
intricacies all of the different pieces
of the dashboard especially or the side
panels a bristle brush really comes in
now one trick if you’re trying to get in
between the airbag or between the
steering wheel and the actual plastic
cover one thing that you can do is spray
your microfiber towel with an
all-purpose cleaner and then kind of
like flossing the towel in between there
it definitely makes it so that way you
can get into those spots even when you
turn the steering wheel you’ll still
miss them but by doing this with the
towel you can get make sure that you got
all of those areas
the front windshield is definitely
getting a lot of overspray in this shot
but that’s why I always wait to do the
glass last because there’s always gonna
be a chance that you’re gonna spray your
top coat your cleaner or anything’s
gonna get on there and that’s why I
always wait to do the glass last
now for this headliner the headliner had
not any staining but it had more dust
handprints you can see here there’s a
one handprint but a more just of a
dusting what I’ll just be using is my
all-purpose cleaner on a microfiber
towel just to wipe it down to get that
now for the rear seats I decided to try
the 303 all-purpose cleaner which is
good for fabrics and all different types
of materials I wanted to see how well it
foamed and how well it cleaned the
leather before I conditioned them and I
was actually really impressed with how
good of a job it did since it is a multi
surface cleaner you could actually use
it for plastic and all different types
of panels and that’s actually what I
used on the headliner as well and it
does a really good job at being an
all-around general-purpose cleaner that
doesn’t cause any staining
now that we got the general cleaning
done on the inside of the car it is now
time to focus on the floor mats which
vacuuming is always the first step and
I’m using my bristle brush to kind of
get any of that caked on dirt especially
in these extra floor mats that the owner
used trying to get all that dirt out and
vacuumed up is definitely priority
number one
now for the solvent that I’ll be
spraying on all the floor mats for
cleaning in the extraction process it’s
actually a fabric carpet cleaner that’s
diluted slightly to attend to one ratio
and I’m going to be spraying it across
the entire floor mat and then use my
bristle brush to agitate the carpet
fibers and the actual rubber floor mats
and inside my extractor I’m just using
now because the owner had both of these
floor mats inside the vehicle I went
ahead and cleaned both sets but I
actually only put the carpeted floor
mats back into the vehicle with the
extra rubber ones into the back of the
bed so that way when the owner gets the
car back he gets to appreciate the cloth
floor mats first and how the car would
come from the factory and then when he
wants to put the other ones back in for
his work he could put the other ones
back in tomorrow
now that the floor mats are done I’m
going to move into extracting and drill
brushing the entire inside carpet and
here I’m going to be doing the front
driver floor well
and like I said earlier the water being
poured out of the extractor isn’t super
dirty compared to other details but it
is dirty and definitely cleaned up the
now that all the actual cleaning is done
it is now time to take our top coat
which in this case is the Chemical Guys
silk shine that I always go to that you
guys know I love and I’m using that to
coat all of the interior panels in the
steering wheel in the dashboard of the
now for the front driver and passenger
seats I’m going to be using the Lexile
cleaner with my bristled brush to get
into all those different pores the
fibers and those different stitching to
get that seat cleaned first and using my
microfiber towel to wipe them off
once the seats have been cleaned I’m
using the Lexile conditioner in a
applicator pad to completely coat the
entire seat first with the conditioner
and then wiping it clean
before I even started the detail looking
at the type of leather in the color of
it I knew that after doing the
conditioner and a cleaner combo the
seats were gonna turn out really really
well and they certainly did not
before I put the seats back in I always
try to do a final maintenance vacuum
which you can see here there are some
dirt particles that have been carried
into the vehicle from when I was doing
the dashboard and everything else so do
one final maintenance vacuum before you
put the seats back in
now I like to when I bolt the seats back
in take a little bit of Loctite and put
it on the bolts before I put them back
into each of the holes that way I can
ensure that they’re not going to back
out and then they’re also back to
factory spec
now that this seats are into the vehicle
go ahead and put all the floor mats back
into the car and then for the final step
in stage of the clean that I like to do
last is always clean the windows
when I clean the windows I’m using
invisible glass and I always have two
microfiber towels the first microfiber
towel is used for actual cleaning and
removing any of the kind of Dammann ins
or dirt that’s on the surface and then
the second microfiber towel is used for
actually buffing and cleaning and
getting any of the rep leftover
chemicals off of the glass
always remember to crank the window down
slightly to get that top edge and then I
always try when I’m doing an interior
detail do the exterior of the windows as
well because when you return it to a
customer if the outside is dirty but the
insides clean they really cannot tell if
it’s been done or not so I always try to
do the inside and the outside as well
and here are the before-and-after shots
at the entire detail and I’m telling you
guys the car turned out beautiful I was
super impressed with the leather on the
door panels on the glovebox and the
front seats just everything was
transformed in the car was honestly
impressive I was actually thinking that
on the way home when I was driving home
I definitely could own one of these it’s
actually a beautiful truck and it turned
out amazing and if you guys enjoy
today’s detail make sure you give this
video a thumbs up let me know in the
comments below what was your favorite
part of the detail and thanks again guys

  1. Hello their. Great content. I am 17 years old and trying to. Get in this i am watching you for 5 months now and would like to know what kind of Things you are using. For cleaning up cars.

  2. Y’all ever heard that if your car nasty..You and your house nasty? But I’m wanna know why he cleaning people’s car? Knowing damn well it gonna be right back mess up🥴

  3. How much do these detailing cost? I’m trying to get a general idea for when I get mine done, I know inflation between states but I’m sure there is a baseline

  4. Hey man I have a serious q after watching all your videos I was wondering how to remove crayon from inside door handles dont ask lol but any advice is very helpful @stauffer garage

  5. Wonder what kind of brush did you use for interior vinyl and leather. Coz can’t find in amazon the exact color of that brush.

  6. Have been watching your videos for a few weeks now. My husband loves that I watch (he used to do auto detailing on the side but has stopped for probably 5 years now due to lack of space from being in a rental) and seeing as I’m hoping he’ll get back into it, I purchased a couple of your recommended products and he’ll be getting them for his birthday tomorrow! Thanks for the videos! Haven’t noticed, but sometimes knowing how long it takes you to clean each vehicle would be cool… give some slobs the motivation to keep their rides clean 😉.

  7. Any tips for removing crayon? 🙈 It melted in my kids’ cup holder and then dried. LOVE watching these videos. Gives me awesome motivation to keep our car clean!

  8. I've noticed a lot of car detailers do a hot water extraction of the headliner and seat belts. This removes all of the "smellies" that get wiped up there as well as remove odors from smoking and other odor-causing agents and pull out all of the sweat and oils in the belts. But your videos don't show any of this. Is it an oversight?

  9. Do u think my Rigid shop vac would be ideal, for now, to extract from carpets? I ask because I only have a pet/house carpet cleaner, not the bigger one u have.

  10. I have a car for you to detail, my fiancé’s Crosstrek is always a disaster inside. We’re in Parkersburg Wv and I noticed you’re in Ohio. Let me know if you ever need a car for a video.

  11. If you tell people how to remove car seats you might want to consider including a warning. If car seats have integrated airbags they can deploy if not removed correctly. Just a suggestion.

  12. I like your videos. Very informative. But you should also film and edit in the reaction of people when they get the vehicle back after a cleaning.

  13. Nice work and quite the transformation! I just subbed. The leather seats turned out great and the floor mat extraction was the most enjoyable.

  14. What brushes, microfiber cloths and apc do you use? I looked at the brushes and they seem to be different from the ones you use in the video

  15. Question
    Can you use all purpose cleaner on fabric seats? Like can you use the apc to everything, steering wheel, carpet, seats, dash? Please come with everything you know

  16. When you remove the seats in these vehicles do you ever have a problem with a airbag or check engine light coming on? Also is there a special tool that you use to disconnect the wiring harness connectors?

  17. Hi!
    Sorry, i'm newbie for your chanel, but i have a question – why you did not perform outside car detailing? (or maybe at least wash the car outside).
    Have a nice day!

  18. Another amazing video! One fun idea you could do is to show the contents of the shop vac after the job is complete, to see how much junk you 'cleaned' out! I would love to see that, and I'm sure others would, too! Just a thought 🙂

  19. Why do people always use the "work car" excuse to drive something at this level of dirt !? "Hidden" beer can? Really?!
    Such a person doesn't deserve to have a car …

  20. I wouls love to see a video for cleaning out ash trays for cars where the owner is a big smoker! Also ideas about getting a car to smell not like a smoker is in it. My father in law is a smoker but hes trying to quit since his motorcycle accident so i want to detail his car and get it smoker free!

  21. When you remove all the personnel items from the car, how do you determine to trash it or save it?  Do you put is back in the same spot or put everything in a bag/box and give it back to them?  I have done some detail jobs and what I do is box everything but throw out the stuff that is definitely trash like; straw covers, wrappers, etc.  The reason I ask this is because one time I tossed an old receipt away and that receipt was one the customer was looking for.  Had to go into the trash to get it.

  22. I understand that you work on tractors in the field and I’d expect your vehicle to get dirty but that’s over the top. Show up like that and I’m going to wonder how well you’ll take care of my equipment if you seem to show no care for yours. Get a purpose built truck not a King Ranch.

  23. Notice that the cars are getting bigger ang bigger every year – compare this F350 and the 1993 F350 model – next to each other they look like two different car categories – fullsize and midsize. And this F350 is even bigger than the Hummer H1.
    I let my car detail every year – it costs 100 Euros and they finish everything in 2 hours and it looks and smells like new. It's not 6 hours because I clean my car in front of my house every two or three months – vacuuming, wiping dust and dirt and clean the windows – it takes about 60 minutes. And the carwash at the gas stations, of course. It's just very basic cleaning, nothing special. I don't feel well in dirt and dust and I also transport people from time to time and I don't wish being considered a messy pig. I just don't get how people can spend their time in a mess like this F350. Is it really so hard moving their bottoms 4 times a year for 60 minutes? Or let their cars clean by a guy like James twice a year?

  24. Quick tip: never use cemicals direct on interior parts because it can damage them, always spray first on ur brush or towel.

  25. This car was dirty as hell, but atleast it wasn't filthy. Like it was mostly just actual dirt in there, not that much jucky gunk

  26. Honesty I have no interest in cars or detailing like I would think most of your viewers are I really just watch you videos because they are therapeutic to me and I watch one and I'm automatically relaxed. So thank you!

  27. Just a heads up with the seat removal, especially in newer cars, make sure the battery is disconnected. Most every car newer than like 05 has airbags in the seats, and not disconnecting the battery can cause an airbag to deploy.

  28. One thing I would do differently is instead of spaying the cleaner directly on all of the door switches and controls I would spray it on the towel and wipe it like that. There’s a chance that you could get the internals wet and ruin them. Better safe than sorry. Love your videos! 👍👍

  29. I always wonder why people who use their trucks in such and way and in that kind of environment buy such luxurious trucks? How about an F150 XL or XLT? No carpet in the XL and much easier to clean

  30. If I hear "hey guys, cody from shine armor…" one more time.. I swear that add had more air time then the whole length of the episode.

  31. I’m really surprised there was even anything to extract in those cloth floor mats! Glad you did them because it was so satisfying.

  32. My Respect to you.
    If I would have to clean this car, I might be afraid of any syringe needles or any other infectious Elements… 😂
