A lot of us like to take our car in for a pampering. That is why there’s no harm in doing it yourself every so often. It’s actually very easy to wash your vehicle’s interior — and you don’t necessarily need fancy machines to get the job done correctly.
Below are some hints to getting your vehicle so clean it’ll look like the pros did it for you! Follow these tricks and you’ll be riding in style… super hygienic style in no time!
Give your car a thorough vacuuming and find every last corner!
Give your carpets and seats a fantastic vacuuming and you are halfway there to a squeaky clean inside. Move forward and get rid of all the junk and debris hiding underneath. Unless you’re meticulous all year-round, you might be surprised by a few of the items lurking down there. Candy wrappers, lost change and even electronics are just some of the things people find beneath their car seats. Don’t forget to remove the mats, and vacuum all the dirt under there also.
You can usually find a carpet-cleaning machine for very cheap and it is essential you use one to wash your car like a pro. It sprays water and chemical cleanser onto the cloth, then sucks up all the grime back into the machine. If you’re wary of buying a carpet-cleaner, see if you can rent one or borrow from a friend instead.
“Detail” all corners of your car
No need for industry-standard equipment when getting into the nooks and crannies of your automobile. Simply wrap a fine cloth with cleaning agent to the end of a screwdriver and wash down all the crevices of your vehicle’s interior. Pay particular attention to air vents, radio dials and dirty edges along the cup holders. Afterwards, use a shining agent like Armor All along the dash and trim to get that luxurious sheen.
Clean vinyl/leather seats often
Use a distinctive chemical agent to wipe grime and dust off your seats. Afterwards, use a rub-in conditioner to give them that glow. This process will help restore your chairs’ natural color and will leave them looking like new.
Kill bad odours
You may not know it, but automobiles often smell like their drivers and the various foods that they lug around town. Whether your car smells like cigarettes or fried chicken, it is unpleasant for passengers riding in your car. Avoid using an air freshener, as this will only mask the problem. Instead, opt for a heavy-duty odour eliminating spray to kill bad scents on contact.
Give your windows a good scrub, a really good one!
Although your windows may look clear, it is likely that they’re cluttered because windows are constantly exposed to the outdoor elements. No point in having a clean car inside if your windows are grimy and full of fingerprints. Use Windex to find a streak-free shine and pay close attention to the window edges!
