Cleaning Headliner

Has anyone had any luck cleaning the off-white (emphasis on 'off') fuzzy headliner? I've used a Bissell heated carpet cleaner / with stain remover, but found that if I scrubbed too much, it pulls at whatever that cottony fabric is and makes it worse. I really don't want to replace it, but it's pretty gross. Thanks for any suggestions.

If it's hanging loose just pull it all off, the look will grow on you till you get it recovered, if a 90 it's a easy one day job to recover it.

Still looking for that place where I can carry a paddle and get asked what's that.

Minimal cleaning followed up by Duplicolor fabric paint? Who wants to go first?!

What do you recover it with? I've wondered about the possibilities of faux upholstery vinyl wrap. Or something completely different - I don't know what's normal or if they have evolved over the years, but mine has lame jicky rectangular openings for the oval shape of my coolass alpine windows. Bugs me.

Yep pull the push pin/fir tree's and drop it to dye it. You can get the fasteners in that tan color or the grey used in later trucks but they too are plastic and can be re-colored with plastic dye/paint.

I have a Lasalle double cab headliner for one of the 130's and it's quality stuff. Brian @ Defenders NW is the US go to for La Salle.

If it is good shape with a few stains, we use mineral spirits on a clean white rag.
