Ways to Clean Car Interior

Upholstery Cleaning

Fabric Seat/Leather Seat Cleaning Products

Cleaning seats could be a tough job but not when you the know the exact products to use. Although, there are a number of products available out in the market but the need for both seats is different.

a) For fabric seats, you can go for Formula 1 Dry Clean Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner.

b) For leather seats, you can try Formula 1 Mr.Leather Spray Cleaner and Conditioner.

In both cases, spray the products on a cloth and wipe off the seats.

Car Seat Vacuuming

A vacuum cleaner is a blessing to get rid of all the dust accumulated over time in your car. If you want to know which vacuum cleaner is best for your car, you can read our expert review here.

All you have to do is empty your car, take out the floor mats and vacuum thoroughly.

Floor Mat Cleaning

You can either vacuum the mats to remove dust or wash them with some water and washing detergent if they are really filthy.

Dashboard Cleaning

Use products that can maintain a shine on your dashboard and prevent dust from settling in. These products come in a spray bottle and provide a glossy finish to the interiors and prevent dust particles from staying there. Many big brands like formula one and 3M have products which fulfil this purpose.

“All day, people are getting in and out of your car. With all the hustle and bustle fine dust accumulates and the shine brings back the inner glow of your car, you need the 3M Dashboard Dresser. Bringing the gloss back to rubber, plastic, and vinyl, it gives your car dashboard a UV protection with no greasy residue.”

Using a Rag vs Using a Microfiber Cloth

Every car has that piece of dirty cloth that is the solution to every spill, patch or dirt. That cloth serves multiple purpose without being cleaned or replaced. Cleaning the windscreen, wiping dew of the side mirrors, cleaning pigeon poop – you name it and this rag can clean almost anything.  But this dirty rag cannot clean plastic, cannot clean beverage spills and is ineffective towards leather.

Microfiber cloth is a better substitute of the “rag” and serves the same function.
