Refresh Your Car’s Interior with these Easy Steps

Interior Car Dash Cleaning

When you desire a fresh and clean look to your interior, you know having a professional job can cost several hundred dollars. Don’t let that discourage you. It’s possible to refresh your car’s interior yourself and save lots of money. When you take the time to clean up your car’s interior, you keep the value of your car high. Here are some tips to help you from your friends here at Irvine Auto Center!

Carpets or Floor Mats Need Special Attention

The best place to start is on your floor mats or carpet. This is where a lot of the dirt accumulates. Keep in mind; if you have a dirty interior, you might prefer to wait until the whole car is finished before doing the carpet. This way you don’t have to redo it later. Remove your floor mats and shake them out. You might also use a stiff brush to loosen up dirt. Then, vacuum while paying close attention to the corners and around the seats.

Seats Get a Lot of Wear and Tear

Depending on what type of seats you have, you’ll have to clean them differently. Start by vacuuming up any loose dirt. If you have leather seating use a special cleaning compound and rub it in with a towel. Dry your seat with a microfiber cloth when you are done. With vinyl seats, cleanup is easy. Most cleaners work fine on vinyl; just spray them on and wipe them down with a rag. If you have cloth seats, you might need to rid them of nasty odors. Try a high-quality upholstery cleaner and something for spot-cleaning where required.

Windows Need a Little Elbow Grease

There’s nothing better for mirrors and windows than some glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth. Spray generously and give a good wipe. Be careful around any tinting.

Console, Dash, and Panels

Finish off doing some detail work around the inside. Vacuum up any loose dirt you find and then wipe down with your microfiber cloth. Be sure to get deep inside crevices and tight areas because this is where dust likes to hide.
