Has anyone tried cleaning their headliner? What did you use? What do you recommended as far as cleaning solution?

I've got the factory dirty fingerprints and a couple light smudges I'd like to clean.

It's funny, I didn't notice them on delivery but sat in the back for the first time yesterday and saw them all clear as day. Must be the angle...

I used some "99% pure Isopropyl Alcohol", I soaked a clean white cloth and dabbed at the spots on my headliner and they disappeared. It's an old car detailers trick I learned decades ago and still works today. My headliner looks VIRGIN, was going to sat "brand new" but it is.

This worked great on all the Fremont assembly fingerprints.

It’s just amazing to read that the SC tells you how best to clean their brand new cars that the SC should have never let out the lot like that haha...this Tesla world is a whole new thing for sure

They offered to clean after my car was delivered at midnight. No joke we were all delirious that night. I declined because I didn’t want to go back.

Right? I also think I'd try quite a few other things before reaching for sandpaper in sponge form. That's a surprising suggestion to me, but I'm glad it works. I'm a big horrified what else they might be using those on.
