I bought my '01 Maxima SE a few weeks ago, and just now got around to detailing it. Didn't realize how gross the headliner was until I started cleaning it.

It actually didn't smell too bad. I sat out a bowl of vinegar in the car overnight, and that di the trick.

Great, My father purchased a used Highlander and I am sure whom ever owned it before had smoke parties in that car.. It was/is HORRIBLE!!!....

Now, take picture of the rest of that car and detail the outside of it

Great job on the headliner.. that is a night and day difference.. What methods did you use?
