Hi all, I took redelivery yesterday of my 325xiT and I didn't notice until I got home that there were some ugly hand prints on the headliner. The dealer is a good hour's drive, darn LA traffic, so I'd rather not return there right away. Any suggestions as to what I could use to clean it?

Thanks in advance!

Very simple fix for this and I do this all the time....get some all purpose cleaner like simple green or 409...mix that with water on a 10/1 ratio water to APC....then spray this on a clean towel NOT ON THE HEADLINER...then rub that area with the towel folded flat....If the stain is still there use a little more on that area....be carefull not to get the liner real wet....by turning the towel to a dry side and rubbing that area to soak up the APC.....I clean HL all the time this way and yet to have a stain that I could not get out.....
