Three steps to flawless interior car care
Clean: Keeping your car's interior clean on a weekly basis will prevent the need for more frequent deep cleaning, interior detailing and odor elimination. Using a soft microfiber towel, wipe down all of the solid surfaces. This will get rid of dust, fingerprints, smudges and minor spills. It's a good idea to use interior car cleaning products and conditioners. Shake out the floor mats, then vacuum and remove pet hair from the carpet and upholstery with a pet hair brush or Magna Pet Rock.
Protect: Use spray and wipe water-based products for UV protection that can last several weeks. Car interior detailing tools will make the surfaces easier to clean the next time around. Meguiar's Ultimate Protectant is an outstanding choice.
Dress: Be sure to use car interior detailing tools and dressings designed for interior care as silicone-based products can feel greasy, create glare and attract dust.
Some interior car cleaning products will be able to handle two or three of these steps at one time. Meguiar's Vinyl & Rubber Cleaner Conditioner or Malco Clean & Shine are effective and easy to use. Always test a new chemical on an area that won't be seen easily, especially leather cleaners and vinyl and leather products.
