    I only use tuff stuff in my Chevy Dually (Black interior) and I used it on my F250 (tan interior) with no problems. Spray it on, wait for a minute, then scrub out the stain with a tire scrubber for major stains (like my son's strawberry milkshake) or a cloth for minor ones. It works awesome. Haven't used it in my taco yet though, I've only owned it 2 weeks. The carpet is different than my other trucks, but I haven't used anything else for my cars. And likely never will.

    I have been using Dri Wash’n Guard Upholstrey, Fabric, & Carpet Treatment for the last year in my Tacoma (Light grey interior). It works amazingly well. Here are a few examples:

    - The kids got sticky Halloween candy all over on the floor in my bedroom. After a few days of Hawaii humidity, it seemed like a hopeless mess. I made plans to go out and rent a steam cleaner the next day, but on a whim decided to try this product first. After about 15 minutes of work, every sign of this widespread, sticky mess was gone. This product made the ground-in, soggy candy disintegrate into small chunks that were easily picked up by a microfiber towel.

    - I spilled about a cup of soy sauce on the front seat of my 2011 Toyota Tacoma. The next day the whole truck reeked and there was a big, brown stain on the seat. All I had to do was spray down the area with this product and wipe up with a microfiber towel and all sign and smell of the mess was gone.

    - Every time I clean the interior of my truck, the seats and floor have a tint of red from our famous Hawaii red dirt. This stuff stains so bad that there is a whole tourist market based on t-shirts dyed with it. I just spray a fine mist of this product over these large areas and wipe up. The stains disappear.

    I also recommend Tuff Stuff. It works great. I even use it on my living room carpet.

    not trying to steal the OPs thread, but does this stuff get out sticky residue leftover from the plastic carpet covers that come from the dealership?

    Maybe worth a shot? Don't think it would hurt anything.

    I have about four different cleaners sitting in my garage right now, including Tuff Stuff. They all work well, but Blue Magic/Carpet stain and spot lifter is by far the best. I'm amazed at how quickly some stains disappear just by simply spraying. It's the only cleaner that would remove fast food grease that had leaked all over my front passenger seat (TRD seats).
