Ford Mustang Owners Manual: Cleaning the interior

WARNING

: Do not use cleaning solvents, bleach or dye on the vehicles safety belts, as these actions may weaken the belt webbing.

WARNING

: On vehicles equipped with seat-mounted airbags, do not use chemical solvents or strong detergents. Such products could contaminate the side airbag system and affect performance of the side airbag in a collision.

For fabric, carpets, cloth seats, safety belts and seats equipped with side airbags:

Remove dust and loose dirt with a vacuum cleaner.

Apply a layer of high quality foam cleaner, designed for automotive interiors, to the dry stained area (s) of the item you are cleaning and allow soaking for one minute.

If grease or tar is present on the material, spot-clean the area first with Motorcraft Spot and Stain Remover. In Canada, use Motorcraft Multi-Purpose Cleaner.

If a ring forms on the fabric after spot cleaning, clean the entire area immediately (but do not oversaturate) or the ring can set.

Do not use household cleaning products or glass cleaners, which can stain and discolor the fabric and affect the flame retardant abilities of the seat materials.
