My dealer who installed my car starter (aftermarket),,the tech that is,,was kind enough to leave his grubby oily finger prints on my pillars. i don't even want to think about them attempting to clean this delicate creamy colored fabric so any suggested methods or product I could use to clean these. I suspect I will likely remove them and would guess there is a "dry cleaner" type solvent that would work best ?

I think someone posted something about a product called Awesome. They indicated that it worked great, even on the headliner.

I would use TUFF STUFF Foaming carpet cleaner. Worked wonders on my tar ridden headliner..
Suprised these pillars are cloth! My Aurora's are cloth, i had to recover them though due to the glue or fabric failing..

Maybe I'll give that a try because my headliner is really dirty. Spots here and there and I've opened the sunroof maybe 2 times the whole time I've owned this thing. It sucks that they use such light materials.

Its very elegant when its clean, but does get dirty rather easily. Maybe it could benefit from some Scotch Guard.

Scotchguard would certainly be a great idea for a new vehicle ! I like the light color..doesn't give you the closed in feeling that a dark color would.

What is needed is a dry cleaning product in an aerosol application..I must check with my detailer

I just had my complete headliner cleaned by my dealer. I will ask them what they used.

There is a product called "Magic Eraser" that I use on leather spots etc. It might just work on your A pillar. You can buy it in many discount stores like Target, Walmart, etc. Very inexpensive and works well. I keep some in the consol, just in case.
