My mom actually owns one a shampooer like the ones you rent and it worked awsome. I don't know what she put in it for a detergent, but it was mixed with warm water and worked great. I did my seats and all of the carpet. Its crazy how much dirt they pull out. She may have used purple power or something similar, I know that it is safe on fabric/carpet, I have used it on my pants before and it takes stains out of them very good.

I vacuum the carpet, and use Stoners Carpet Cleaner. Work with brush, then wipe dry with a towel. It does a nice job. You can use a shop vac without the filter to suck up the soapy residue as well, but I think the towel does better for dirt removal

Don't know for sure. I can't imagine it would hurt anything to brush it.

if you already have the seats out, pull the whole carpet out and wash it on the driveway or at the carwash. I used carpet cleaner soap and a scrub brush, and rinsed it with the pressure. I did it to mine when I bought it. It had coffee and all kinds of dog hair in it. None left after that. It also has a better chance of drying when the carpet is completely out.
