Cleaning the headliner

Despite having the delivery checklist, I felt a little rushed and missed a couple of slight smudges on my headliner. Actually, I was more focused on an area of weatherstripping for the driver’s side rear door, which seems to be missing part of its powder coating (if that’s what you call it), but the headliner in this area also looks dirty, when light is shined on it.


1. What’s the best way to try to clean the headliner? Just water and a microfiber cloth? Carpet cleaner and blotting?

2. Should I try to get them to replace the weather stripping? I showed it to the delivery specialist and he seemed less than interested, but said he’d check to see what could be done. Still haven’t heard back from them. The other side doesn’t have this appearance.
