Tips for Cleaning Your Car’s Interior
Keeping your car interior clean is a matter of pride and comfort. Whether you just like to enjoy a clean car, are trying to impress a passenger, or are prepping your vehicle for a trade-in, cleaning your car’s interior is important. Here are some tips from the experts at the Bert Ogden Auto Outlet in Mission, Texas, for cleaning out your daily driver:
Get rid of all the trash
Start by taking out a trash bag or can and removing all the easy to grab trash and debris. In the future, try keeping a trash bag inside the car so you can regularly remove trash without having it build up.
Use a vacuum, carpet cleaner, and leather cleaner
Next, use a vacuum on all floor mats and seating surfaces. You can also use a vacuum to remove dust from the dashboard and air vents. You can remove floor mats and use a carpet cleaner on them for a like-new look. If you have all-weather floor mats, spray them down with a hose. Carpet cleaners also work on fabric-based seats. If you have leather seating, instead use a quality leather cleaner to clean your seats.
Clean the windows and mirrors
Grab a microfiber cloth and some glass cleaner. Spray down all windows (inside and out) and mirrors and then scrub them down. If you don’t have a window cleaner on hand, just mix water and distilled white vinegar in a one-to-one ratio.
Grab tweezers, toothpicks, and toothbrushes
When cleaning the center console, cupholders, buttons, and other small areas, toothbrushes are good for scrubbing while toothpicks and tweezers are great at removing crumbs and dirt in cracks.
