I got some of that Totally Awesome in a pray bottle and it says on there to dilute it. Is that necessary?
I dilute mine in a bucket of water and use a sponge for regular washing. No dilute for extreme cleanings with a soft brisel brush. Btw this stuff CLEANS! I found its the only thing that gets the crap off my windshield frame to make it look brand new. I really do like babes though and use it if I have it. For a buck its hard to beat the alternative though. Just 303 it after. These stronger cleaners tend to dry upholstery out.

TOTALLY AWESOME IS THE NEW CHAMP.

Well got some Totally Awesome. At $1 it is a fraction of the cost of the designer cleaners. I picked up a case.

Blows the doors off everything I tried (babes, 303 cleaner and vinyl sauce).

Dont waste your money like I did. Buy Totally awesome and follow up with a light wash with water and then 303 areospace. I see some guys use babes or vinyl sauce after using Totally awesome. I used a damp sponge with warm water then 303.

Anyway interior looks great. Did great work on the sticking.

We have been using Babes Seat Soap followed by 303 protectant. Seats get cleaned and protected 3-4 times a season whether they need it or not and wiped down with a towel after every outing. I see no reason to try anything else. We buy a 5 gallons of Seat Soap to bring the cost down.

I agree I may only use Totally awesome once or twice a year. Vinyl sauce for day to day. Followed by 303.

Any recommendations for a "soft bristle brush"? Everything I've found at the local stores seems pretty stiff.

How long are you guys leaving the 303 Aerospace Protectant on the vinyl before you wipe it off?
