Car interior care goes beyond protecting your vehicle’s interior aesthetics. There are numerous benefits to be gained too such as removing and preventing dust and allergens, improving the visibility of windows and windscreen, and preventing loose items from causing accidents. Here are some tips from us here at Irvine Auto Center on how to properly care for your car’s interior cabin.

Get Rid of Clutter

One of the first things to do in keeping a car’s interior tidy is to remove litter and unnecessary objects from it such as gym bags, books, and toys. Rather than keeping them in your car, bring them into your house! It’ll help you to not forget anything that is important.

Clean the Console

The dashboard, steering wheel, console buttons, cup holders, and interior door handles should all be given due attention. A general household cleaner and a rag and an old toothbrush for hard to reach places is good enough to get rid of the accumulated dirt and grime.

Don’t Ignore the Windows Inside and Out

Microfibre towels and window cleaner is most effective to get rid of tough stains on windows and prevent streaking. If you have tinted windows first ensure that the window cleaner you use is safe for use.

Vacuum the Interior

Removing floor mats first before vacuuming allows for a more in-depth clean. It is not just the seats and floor that needs to be vacuumed but also the ceiling of the car.

Leather Seats Need to be Cleaned and Conditioned

Saddle soap or an alternative appropriate cleaner and a soft brush can be used to clean leather seats effectively. Once cleaned, the seats need to be conditioned. Upholstered fabric seats can be cleaned with a carpet cleaner and for tough stains use a stain remover.
