The only thing better than owning a new car is having a used one that looks and smells as if it just came off the showroom floor. Although you can always have your vehicle detailed by a professional, the process is expensive, it takes time, and it has to be done on a regular basis. The other option is to clean the interior yourself, using the right methods and products.
While it might seem like a lot of work, in reality you can keep your car’s interior looking and smelling showroom fresh with relative ease.
Vacuuming and Shampooing
Beyond just vacuuming, you need a vacuum cleaner that comes with tools for getting dirt out of deep crevices. In addition, a brush will go a long way in removing caked on dirt in carpets. Be sure that every inch of the carpet is cleaned. Carefully vacuum beneath the seats and hard-to-reach spots, like between the seats.
Once the carpets have all been vacuumed, you can use a portable carpet cleaner with high quality shampoo. With this, ground in dirt is completely removed but in addition, shampooing gives the car a new showroom smell.
Things you probably already have at home or those easy to find at any automotive, hardware, and even grocery store such as cotton swabs, leather cleaner, stain remover, a vinyl cleaner, and microfiber towels are essential.
Obviously, it is important to choose the right product according to seat material.
For cloth seats, the cleaner is applied and with a moist sponge, worked into the fabric for deep cleaning. After the seats dry, they need to be thoroughly vacuumed.
If the seats are made of leather, you want to be cautious in choosing the right product. However, with cleaners designed specifically for leather seats, you can easily remove any stains and grime that has built up over the years. In this case, you want to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and be careful not to apply too much to prevent removing any dye coloring.
Even the interior trim of your car will need to be properly cleaned. Depending on how much dirt buildup needs to be cleaned, you may have to use a little elbow grease. Many products made for cleaning interior trim are developed with some type of protectant so in addition to cleaning, you enjoy the long-term benefit of protection.
