Here are a few things you will need to detail the interior of your vehicle like a pro:
To begin, drop the windows so you can access the very top of the glass. You can clean the glass with traditional window cleaner. You’ll also want to open up all of your doors so the entire inside of the car gets as much light as possible. This will help you find dirt and debris you may not otherwise see. Move the front seats as far back as you can to get extra access to space underneath the seats for vacuuming. Vacuum all of the nooks and crannies along your seats and floor.
You can use a mild soap or all-purpose cleaner on the plastic panels and on leather seats – if you have them. A microfiber cloth will keep you from damaging or scratching panels. If your door sill is dirty you may want to use a semi firm brush to clear debris away. You should only use a microfiber cloth on your touch screen.
It may not hurt to drop the steering wheel all the way down and pull it out so that it is fully extended. This will allow you to get into every crevice to remove any dust.
Are you frustrated by stains on your floor mats? Remove them from the vehicle and use foam cleaner or heavy-acting foam spray. Let this soak in for a few minutes and then take a stiff brush to clean any sand, dirt and pine needles that may be embedded in the threads. Spray foam cleaner on your pedals to clear away dirt and salt that may be embedded on the pedal.
Note: Never use silicone spray on your steering wheel or pedals, this could make surfaces too slick and cause your hands and feet to slip off while driving!
A soft brush can clear away dust along your air vents, while you’ll want to just brush your speakers. Never spray anything into your speakers. By spraying your weather stripping along windows with silicone spray you can protect the seal.
Note: Never spray anything on your instrument panel or cluster!
A few final tips…
It helps to put a coat of wax on your car before winter and spring because it will protect against salt, bird droppings and acid rain. It also doesn’t hurt to put extra wax on the front of the car and headlights, to protect against bugs.That’s all there is to it! By following these tips and tricks you’ll have your vehicle shining the same way it did the day you drove it off the lot!
