Americans spend a significant amount of time in their cars. Whether you are commuting to work or taking kids to sporting events, your vehicle takes a lot of abuse. The best way to keep your car's interior fresh is to detail it regularly.
Here are three tips you can use to ensure your car's interior get cleaner than ever the next time you detail your vehicle at home.
1. Use a paint sponge to clean vents.
Your car's air vents can contribute to a dirty interior by circulating dust throughout your vehicle. Making sure that your air vents are completely clean should be a priority during every home detail job.
Investing in a small painting sponge from your local craft store can be a simple way to remove more dust and debris from your car's air vents. The sponge will easily fit between the vent openings, allowing you to thoroughly remove dirt that could contaminate your interior detail once the air conditioning or heater is turned on.
2. Use a toothbrush to clean vinyl.
Much of your vehicle's interior is made up of vinyl. There is vinyl on your car's dashboard, door panels, and center console that can collect dirt and debris over time. If your car's vinyl is cracked or textured, removing dirt from these minute crevices can be a challenge.
Using a soft-bristled toothbrush will help you access dirt in the tiniest cracks without compromising the integrity of your interior vinyl.
3. Use a window squeegee to remove pet hair.
If you have a dog or cat that frequently rides in your vehicle, then you know how much pet hair can collect on your car's seats over time. Removing pet hair from your vehicle's upholstery can be challenging, but making use of a window squeegee can eliminate a lot of the work associated with this detailing task.
Misting your car seats with water, and then using the window squeegee to scrape moistened pet hair from your car's seats will help hair clump together. Clumped hair is easier to vacuum up than individual strands, allowing you to free your vehicle's interior from pet hair for good.
Finding ways to make cleaning your car's interior easier doesn't have to be difficult. Using a few tools like a paint sponge, toothbrush, and window squeegee can alleviate many of the problems drivers have when trying to detail the inside of their daily drivers.
