I have a C-Class Mercedes with Artico imitation leather interior. The "leather" is starting to crack the same way real leather does, (not badly). Do you know the best way to maintain the appearance of the seats? Presumably, the normal leather treatments won't be of any use, or would they?

How do I take out the interior foam from the third row seats of my Volkswagen Touran 1.6 diesel BlueMotion? Milk was spilled on the very back seats that fold into the boot floor. I was told to try and remove the interior foam and wash it to get the smell out.

Hi there changagoidem,
Any idea what I can do/use to get rid of 'fence life' paint from my automobile? It got sprayed a little over the weekend. Will it need to be machine polished to get it all off? I've rubbed the spoiler area for about an hour with warm sudsy water and then a dry cloth and managed to get it 90% off that, but it's pretty much all over the automobile.
